We hired a cab to drive us straight to the monument. Bought our tickets R$44 per person, lined up for the short bus ride to the top. Took escalator and then walked thru the last 3 flight of stairs using escalator. It was well worth...More

Though we went on a cloudy day it is an excellent piece of architecture. Worth seeing. Get very early if you can otherwise stay in a long queue.

Buy your tickets online first, take an Uber there and avoid midday when it is hottest and most people are there. Be prepared for huge crowds, and high priced trinkets. The clouds blow through quickly which gives it a sense of unreality. The Christ itself...More

Yes, it’s touristy and crowded but you won’t get a better feel for really being in Rio! The views are spectacular and it’s one of the wonders of the world. Don’t pass this up!

I went as soon as they opened at 8:00 am. There were no lines thankfully. The ticket cost 30 Reales (Brazilian coin) per person which is around $8. Take in mind we went on Monday. The Christ itself is breathtaking and the view is phenomenal...More

What a great experience! We took a mini bus from the square straight to the top. Cost around £40 each. We went on a very clear day so could enjoy the views for miles around.

Itr better than you imagine. The view is better than the sugar loaf. Probably the best in the city. There is wifi there.

One those must see places in the World. A very nice narrow gauge train takes you up and down the mountain. Unfortunately very busy with tourists. But the views are worth it as is getting up to the statue. A definitive must see.

It was very crowded. Waiting time for Corcovado train was 2 and half hours. We choose shuttle instead train, however with addional waiting time for second schuttle, we needed almost 3 hours to get to Christ. I think that train is better solution. Statue itself...More

Religion aside (I am not a religious person), standing at the base of Cristo Redentor is an indescribable feeling... it is a magnificent tribute in a spectacular setting, that just feels magical. A must see when in Rio.

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.
