Go here if there is a match to have your entrance fee maximized. I personally didn't enjoy the tour at the stadium as it's too crowded because the guide who can speak english, portuguese, espanyol had us in ALL in one group and rushed everything! We paid expensively for such a lousy tour around which you can do on your... More

The stadium which is a football (Soccer as known in the U.S. Cathedral) has been completely remodeled, and is one of the most beautiful places to see a match, good signage, clean, good restrooms. Well done Rio !

We visited the stadium during a Botafogo match, and it was amazing. It is easy to get there from any part of Rio by metro, although it is far from the beach area. The stadium is amazing from the inside: the field, the decoration, the huge screens that shows you what happens during the match, the acoustics of the fans,... More

We saw one of the Brazil Cup games here. It was a lot of fun!! It was very inexpensive, too. The fans were great.

Perhaps the most spectacular soccer stadium in the world, the Maracana boasts of creating legends in the years of its existence. The stadium reflects the love and passion for football that the brazilians feel. If you like football do visit this stadium. The metro rail station is very convenient for visitors

The first time I visited this stadium was in 2000 when the capacity was almost 200,000. What a great experience going to a soccer game in this historic venue. I visited again with my family last week. The upgrades are incredible. They decreased the seating capacity to around 80,000. There is a stadium tour that takes you to the different... More

This is the chant local fans sing while entering Maracana, and when they realize their side has the largest fan base inattendance in the stadium on a particular match. Highly transformed to attend International safety standards, the stadium is beautiful, spotless clean, neat and very organized with number seating. The World Cup matches were amazing! But you must attend one... More

The stadium deserves a visit after it was remodeled for the World Cup. It is gorgeous! I was there only once after it reopened but I enjoyed very much. A good option is to use the subway to avoid traffic and parking, which is very challenging.

Superb stadium with all eco-friendly technology to recoup and use rain water for the turf and showers as well as solar systems to power the lifts but still have doubts whether a cool U$1 billion needed to be spent when schools and hospitals are in serious need of investments!!

Simply put: anyone visiting Rio should try to visit Maracanã to see a "classic" match. The place explodes with the sounds of the organized cheering and makes anyone's heart beat faster. Thrill seekers can look for seats behind the goals, where they can join each team's supporters, but I prefer to the D section seats where you can get closer... More
