Historic stadium, host to 2014 World Cup final. Home to local top-level clubs. Tour available in English with self-guided or with a guide. Beautifully renovated. A must see if you love soccer.

I had a great time at the iconic Stadium. Even though I was slightly disappointed (nostalgia) as I had in my head the old style Maracana. A bit like with the old and new Wembley. Non the less the stadium is better than I thought it will be, very modern and clean with lots of toilets and eating areas. We... More

Every sport has THE stadium. For futball, its this one. Best/safest/cheapest way to get there is the subway/metro. Went for a corinthians vs fluminese match. 30 real if you want to sit with team supporters and 60 reals for better seat where you get to see both the team supporters make noise and have fun. Lots of volunteers and cops... More

YOU MUST TOUR THE MARACANA STADIUM WHEN YOU GO TO RIO! My first visit was on February 1977 when it looked similar than when it was built on 1950...but with the renovation that took place for the World Cup 2014; MARACANA looks amazing.

November 2013 ..Went to a Vasco game (relegated 2 weeks later). No away fans but atmosphere still great. Easy to access by Metro. Tickets cheap for this game but as always confusion as to when tickets available prior to the march especially for Flamengo games...,2 wasted trips. New updates to the stadium look good and staff very friendly and helpful.... More

Is simple incredile when you enter in the stadium , and see that magnificence, the tour is great, the attention is amazing, and the stadium as such is very confortable, if you can, go to a match there and believe me, you will love it.

I loved my visit to maracana. Not a football fan but after the word cup I found it super exciting that I could go up to the journalists' place, to the vip area and the footballers dressing room with t-shirts signs of their seating (yay for Messi!). I thought it was fascinating to be able to walk in the stadium... More

Unfortunately this is one of those places you must visit in RJ, there is so much history associated with the stadium. The problem is that it is a total let down. i expected so much more with the tour, more history, more explanations, more things to see... Basically you are on your own wandering around empty corridors and walking through... More
