Overwhelmingly beautiful... quick tips to enjoy the statue and not so many tourists

Earlier in the day, the better! Weekdays better than weekend. Since the view is such a big draw, try to go when the weather is supposed to be good. I know some people who went... read more

Earlier in the day, the better! Weekdays better than weekend. Since the view is such a big draw, try to go when the weather is supposed to be good. I know some people who went up and Christ was covered by clouds, so they could only see His feet! The train is a great way to get up the mountain,... More

Whilst the statue itself wasn't as stunning as I'd imagined it to be, the view was well worth going for. It gets very busy so make sure that you get the first bus up (around 8.20 am) to beat the crowds.

I loved the view from up there. The size of the monument is impressive, and that is it. However, the view is breath taking.

Really lovely to see this,more impressive than we had expected as it is up over 700 metres above the city so has spectacular views at the top. Monkeys to see wandering around the national park too! Not much space at the top and it's extremely crammed but other than that was great to see and visit.

We went very early to be first. Our taxi dropped us at the train instead of going up to intermediate point which i would advise. Took the bus iso train and arrived around 8:45 9:00 on top. Not so many poeple to enjoy a breathtaking view and 30 minutes of rio contemplation. Definitely a must see!

My beautiful wife to be at the time were just in Rio to get her American visa at the embassy there. The first place we visited was here. It was cloudy that day so I do not recommend it on a cloudy day. The clouds made our pictures in and out possible but they moved fast enough we were able... More

Would recommend getting there as early as possible. We visited at about 2pm and although the queues to get in weren't unreasonable it was packed full at the top. Still an amazing experience.

Been there alone, lately with friends, girlfriend, wife, children So many times and always a renewed pleasure. Rio de Janeiro is an amazing place, one of the nicest landmark in the world. It lays on Parque de Tijuca, a place where you go in and wish never to go out.

In the UK "The Angel of the North" welcomes visitors to Newcastle and Northumberland. In Brazil the statue of "Christ the Redeemer" seems to welcome the whole world. So much more impressive in 'real life' than when seen on film.

Try to go on a clear day, although the view is still good if a little cloudy. There are a couple of options on how to get there, we bought tickets at a kiosk downtown and they drove us to the top. The drive is really steep and kind of crazy, it's amazing how high you go. There is also... More
