Ever since I was a little boy, I wanted to come to Soccer's cathedral. I finally had the chance to watch a quarter final match this last World Cup. The stadium is modern, the seats were comfortable and the event was well organized.

Visiting Rio and not knowing how to pass that rainy evening? The beaches are not going to make it worth while staying in Rio? Then make a stop at Maracanã stadium, and visit the catacombs of this magnificent building! The museum is worth the time spent, but even better is to watch a game of one of the Rio-based football...

Although we could not feel the real atmosphere of the Soccer World Cup in January it was a proud moment for my family to be just there and have a snapshot. The Maracana Stadium looks very grand.

I was in the old Marcaná and now in it´s renewed version. I think it feel behind expectations, no matter it is a place you have to be in, specially in a football match

I live in Rio and had the opp to go to several stadiums around the world. For visiting, Maracana is not the best, but has a great history and was the place for 2 world cup finals (Think that Mexico City has the other one that helded 2). If you are in Rio, try one game, if possible between 2... More

After years of waiting, finally got the chance to visit this Mecca of football. Came with my wife and two friends, they have kept the facade unlike Wembley and was impressed by the structure in and around the stadium. You can go on a tour for 30reais, or pay 36 for a guided your in English which is much better.... More

We were fortunate enough to be in Brazil for the world cup. But to be at the Maracana for the Germany v. France quarter final--- un-flippin believable!! We paid a hefty price for the tickets in section 113 row z, which were decent seats. I'm not sure how the stadium is run when the whole world is not watching but... More
