It’s amazing the only bad thing was the weather as it was so hot so if you’re going there take more water with you

Need to get there 45 minutes before your scheduled tram. We were there on a weekday afternoon. The top was very crowded. Had to wait an hour to get the tram back down. We didn’t do Sugarloaf, but maybe it would’ve been a better choice.

You have some options, take the train or van (car for almost 10 person). You can buy the ticket on line, but you schedule your visit. It's recommended to buy 1 day advance at least. Bring you camera and you will have unforgettable memories.

Instead of taking the overpriced tours we did this on our own and it cost us 20% 0f the tour operators costs. A great tram trip to the top. Lovely views of the city. For those afraid of heights have no fear my wife felt...More

The whole experience was horrible. Arrived at the bottom of the hill. Told the wait was 3 hours for the single track train that goes to the summit. The alternative is a minibus so we got that instead. It stops about 3/4 of the way...More

Great view of the city, we came by train to the top. On the way there sit on the left site so you can enjoy better view. It’s a biggest attraction in the city so it’s crowded all the times.

Important recommendation: do not use tours or taxis. In the Plaza de Lido you will buy for less than US $ 30 the trip to the top of the Corcovado and also include the entrance to the park.

Worth a visit perhaps over hyped. Raining hard the morning I was it up close and personal. Staff and processes unnecessarily slow. On bucket list so needed to be done✅

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.

I am not 100% sure as to what is included as our tickets were purchased by a guide in advance. I know that these have to be exchanged for the train tickets on arrival at the station and then allocated a time slot (the trains... More
