We went there to see a match of local team -botafogo. The atmosphere was great even though the studium was far from being full. Just cheer for the right team.

One of the main landmarks of Rio and Brazil in general. We were on a guided tour around the area with the history of the famous journalist. It is a nice way of appreciation.

We went there to see a match and it is something else! We took VIP tickets and had a buffet as well. It was really great as we were sitting next to where the players come so we could see them very close. The atmosphere of this stadium is... well it is MARACANA Stadium!

It's a must in Rio... It's huge and it looks great after the renovations! We have been there for a couple of games and it's always impressive! I visited it during the renovations and got to see a little bit of the tour, I bet the current tour version is better!

Completly renovated for the World Cup, more confortable and more expensive .. but taking the elevator that opens its doors at the top floor and you see that spetacular stadium, is magnificent, fantastic vibrations especially if rival teams such as Flamengo and Fluminense are playing and the crowd singing and cheering wildly !!

A must for every football fan. Buy the tickets online/at the box office as it is a lot cheaper than to book it through your hotel/hostel. There's a Metro stop right next to the stadium.

This is certainly the Mecca of football. It was the befitting venue for a historic final between Germany and Argentina. The world will be unlikely to witness anything like what happened in Brazil in terms of football. The organization was just out of this world and the Brazilians were the most friendly organizers of any event I have ever attended.

Super modern comfortable seats! wow, every seat is a good one, we watched Italy vs Mexico in the Confederations Cup 2013 and were way off in the corner, I thought it was going to be a bomb, sitting so far off, but nope, it was great! The Legend of the Stadium was enchanting, and it was hard to imagine that... More
