Probably the most famous football stadium in the world. Hosted the football world cup finals in 1950 & 2014. The tour includes, an option where you can visit the locker rooms. You can even walk from the locker rooms up the tunnel, to recorded voice of cheering fans.

If you are a soccer lover you have to go. And even if you don't, it's a must. You can feel the excitement of the games and there's this like little room where you can hear recordings of the World Cup and you can feel the passion with it.

A must see cathedral of football for all real fans. As an attraction for the neutral it is comparable to going to the new Wembley, but for fans of the game...what a treat

The Maracana Stadium was in 2009 very big. The main entrance to park the car..... And the dressing rooms with showers, the way to the field, the view from the chars to the field, The history, far away into the high clouds you can see the Corcovado.....For a football-fan like me, it was great! Around this very big stadium where... More

It's a really amazing place to visit in Rio. It's bigger than what it looks like in pictures and TV, and only being at the entrance it's exiting. A great place to visit either if you are a sport fan or not. The guided tour it's also very good.

The entrance was just off the underground walkway,all you can eat food and soft drinks were included (ok but not great) in air-conditioned room.Our seats were just... More

This stadium was rebuilt for the 2014 World Cup, so unfortunately imagining 199,000 people watching a game at Maracana was difficult. Nonetheless we are glad to have visited this iconic Brazilian football and World Cup stadium. It seemed small (seats 74,000) and surprising dated (for a new stadium) when compared to Wembley. We did a self guided tour which was... More
