Like flying among the soaring birds!

I thought I would be a little uneasy with the height, and it is high, but the views are second to none! Bring a jacket, because it is breezy and cool. I thought that the tram... read more

I thought I would be a little uneasy with the height, and it is high, but the views are second to none! Bring a jacket, because it is breezy and cool. I thought that the tram ride would also make me a bit uneasy, but it was also, very solid and didn't rock as much as it appeared. A camera... More

Must go if you come to Rio. I enjoyed the view a lot. Definitely one of the most touristy areas but the crowd was worth it. Had to queue up a little when I arrived in the morning so can't imagine in the afternoon. Go earlier to avoid the crowds.

On Pão de Açúcar you will find a beautiful view and a good infrastructure. The way up to the mountain is amazing. Very organized, modern... no worries! Bring your camera and enjoy a beer next to God. One tip only. Try buying your ticket online before. You might loose a little time in the ticket line

One of the high (no pun intended) points of Rio is a cable car ride up to the top of Sugarloaf. With a 360 degree view, the view is stunning up and down the coast and out seaward. You dont realize how hilly Rio really is until you go up.

We visited this place after seeing Christ the Redeemer and got there about 11:30. It was crowded but not too bad. I'm glad we went to see the statue first as it is higher than the sugar laid mtn but you get to see a Rio from a different viewpoint
