It's been a dream of mine to visit this stadium and it was fantastic. Booked on a tour and the guide was very good speaking in Portuguese and English. Stadium itself is very modern and impressive. Great to walk around and think about the greats who have graced the turf.

Once you are in Rio and you are not indifferent to the football, it is worth to visit Maracana! It doesn't matter whether you will be lucky to see a match here. The Maracana stadium has also a museum of Brazilian football, where you can learn how it was developing. You can also visit the VIP's and media sittings and... More

Very well connected to the city by subway. Although the access is organized it can be messy because Brazilians do not respect qeues very much. Inside it was easy to find our seats. Toilets are pretty clean. As in any big event, try to get rhere early and expect qeues at food stations and toilets. Try to leave early to... More

This place has hosted incredible events, many famous athletes and after the renovations during the world cup it is truly a sight to see and sit and image all the history in one stadium!

Stopped for about 15mins on a day trip exploring the highlights. Such a huge complex and where some of the Olympics will be held. There was a statue out the front which grabbed most of us tourists attention, but the angles for photography weren't that great except from the top of the bus. One can only imagine the atmosphere on... More

We only saw the outside of this stadium. There was a man outside of the stadium who was very entertaining. He was able to do tricks with a soccer ball for something like 5 minutes without dropping the ball. He even took his shirt on/off while keeping the ball bouncing.

We visited Maracana at the end of May 2015 to watch the derby Fla - Flu! I highly suggest to go to Maracana for a game, not to see an empty stadium. We contacted a very nice person Sergio (here is his blog: http://futebolnomaracana.blogspot.com/) who got the tickets for us, guided us to Maracana by the metro and broughts us... More

Stadium well rebuilt. Close in design. Appears massive on the exterior but small on the inside. I small with a caveat - it can actually hold 90,000 plus screaming fans. Superb. It will host the kickoff of next year's Olympics. If you are in Rio over a week you should be able to catch a match there. .

We arrived late for the guided tour so we opted for the audioguides. Big mistake! Good luck finding all the numbers on different floor levels with zero instructions. The tickets are too expensive for what you get. Also..the stadium is not that impressive.
