Best view ever!

Great place to visit. The view is beautiful. On weekends they serve breakfast from 8:30 and if you get there early you can sit in front with breathtaking views of Niterói and Rio.

Best view over Rio. A long way from the busy beaches and city center. free to visit during the day. From rio, take the ferry to charitas and take a taxi there. Using a taxi from rio would take over an hour over the bridge. There is almost always a guy there who will ask you if you want a... More

This offers the best view of the bay. There are people doing paragliding. An instructor tried to talk me into a tandem paraglide but I was a bit scared. The view in the paraglide must have been even better but the view from the platform is good enough for us.

Having been in Rio over NYE, it is very crowded but Parque da Cidade was not. I think it was the best view of Rio, beats the sugarloaf and the Cristo Redentor. Don't have to wait in line for hours or pay any fee. Of course, it is good to have a car to get there.

It is a short drive up and the view of the bay and of Riois breathtaking. Enjoyed just sitting at the platform, admiring God's wonderful creation all around.

Sugar Loaf??? The Christ??? It is so easy to go there and so obvious when you come to Rio...these are the icons of the city, but we should see the outskirts, we should see the surroudings and pay attention about locals have to say. Parque da Cidade should be not in the first positions in the ranking of Niteroi, it... More

Excellent view of the whole of Guanabara Bay, including Sugar Loaf, Corcovado. and ocean beaches of Niterói. Special place for those practicing hang gliding. Breakfast from 9am with unforgettable scenery.

A simple and down to Earth place that offers some of the best views you can get from Guanabara bay. I would suggest visiting it in mid to late afternoon, and waiting for the sunset. Even during the peak of summer, the place offers a pleasant environment, with a nice breeze keeping it a few degrees cooler than the city.

Well worth a visit, the views are incomparable. Hang on tight to young children though, the drops are sheer in places and there are no safety railings at all. We visited in the afternoon and apart from groups of teenagers it seemed rather deserted and little known by tourists. Simply stunning vistas across Rio.
