The best view of Rio de Janeiro city

Niteroi is another city, but it is from there where you can face the best view of Rio de Janeiro. Its a little bit fair (1 hour average by car), but totally worths.

On the way up, the inclination may put off some drivers, but if persevere you be rewarded with amazing views of Rio de Janeiro, Niterói and all the surroundings.

The view is marvelous on Niterói and Rio. There is a nice restaurant where you can have drinks with a nice view. It's a pity it closes at 19.00 so be early and take a taxi because it can be busy.

Similar views as on Sugar Loaf, this time for free but not a 360° view. Getting there takes a ride in your car on a very steep, narrow and winding road. You could also hike there although there is nothing to see on the way up. Many people congregate here in the evening to admire the sunset. A must see... More

On a business I had some time in Niteroi. I had heard of the city park from a friend and decided to go. There are no buses or any that I saw so you will need a car. The roads are very steep and some very tight switch backs do be prepared. The views on a clear day are incredible... More

Definitely a spot you should try and get to, but you need a car or you must grab a taxi. The views of Rio and Guanabara Bay are breath-taking especially when the sun is setting. Views of Ipanema, Copacabana, central Rio, Niteroi bridge and Niteroi. At sunset Christ the Redeemer is a silhouette on the landscape with an intense red/orange... More
