Was lucky enough to get tickets to 2 matches at the Maracana for the World Cup and the experience was absolutely amazing!

I had the pleasure of touring this football stadium recently and I was very impressed with what I saw. The millions spent to prepare this for the 2014 FIFA World Cup was money well spent in my opinion. The facilities are first class and the atmosphere is just great.

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.
