It is easy to get to by tram. You need to see the statue close up. You need to see all of the city, since you cannot visit it all. Pick a clear day or ask for when it will clear.

Been to Rio a few times, my favorite place to travel to. Love Corcovado, JC is HUGE and it is a sight to see...take the train, it's half the fun. You want a show of the statue, try laying on the floor and looking up......More

Worth trying, but a bit overpriced and lacking in views. The train is still worth a try.

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.

We saw security. But it was Carnival week. I would look up Gustavo Faro, the guide who took us up there.
