It's a must in Rio... It's huge and it looks great after the renovations! We have been there for a couple of games and it's always impressive! I visited it during the renovations and got to see a little bit of the tour, I bet the current tour version is better!

Completly renovated for the World Cup, more confortable and more expensive .. but taking the elevator that opens its doors at the top floor and you see that spetacular stadium, is magnificent, fantastic vibrations especially if rival teams such as Flamengo and Fluminense are playing and the crowd singing and cheering wildly !!

A must for every football fan. Buy the tickets online/at the box office as it is a lot cheaper than to book it through your hotel/hostel. There's a Metro stop right next to the stadium.

This is certainly the Mecca of football. It was the befitting venue for a historic final between Germany and Argentina. The world will be unlikely to witness anything like what happened in Brazil in terms of football. The organization was just out of this world and the Brazilians were the most friendly organizers of any event I have ever attended.

Super modern comfortable seats! wow, every seat is a good one, we watched Italy vs Mexico in the Confederations Cup 2013 and were way off in the corner, I thought it was going to be a bomb, sitting so far off, but nope, it was great! The Legend of the Stadium was enchanting, and it was hard to imagine that... More

World Cup Final is priceless! Sharing this moment with my son is unforgettable... Very secured and organized. Much better than when I used to come as a child.

I've never visited a stadium as if you were visiting a museum. We've been to the Maracana just out of curiosity, probably because of the legend around it and the World Cup effect! We were not disappointed, as we had a very pleasant and original visit. We self-guided ourselves, which was really easy thanks to the friendly staff out there.... More
