I will never forget this massive statue embracing Rio the Janeiro and the entire world on the top of the hill. The view on the city of Rio took my breath away. Make sure you see Christ Redeemer at night too, it is properly illuminated and it is so stunning in the dark ! The trip on the train to... More

It may be a cliche, but this is the must see attraction in Rio. The statue itself is impressive enough but the views from the top are just the best in Rio, if not the world. You can get to the top by van or by the train (trem do corcovado, terminus in Cosme Velho) and I would go for... More

Travel to Rio I'd strongly recommend to y'all. Also know as "Cidade Maravilhosa" (Wonderful City), the name says it all. I have been there twice: first in sep/2013 and last in jul/2015. All I can say is that both times I've been there I was completely in love with it. It was just this year (2015) that I could finally... More

I advice to go by train to Corcovado! And try to reach Cristo before afternoon, because after 12 a.m. sun start to go at his back and you just cannot make good picture. View from Corcovado is amazing! And to look at His face is unbelievable experience!

you get there and buy the ticket of the train abt 60 reais each over 12 years old. It's worth the views over all Rio de Janeiro. Go there before 10,00 am and spend 2 hours in a clear day, otherwise skip it. It's really worth and safe there!

If you ever find yourself in Rio, Christ the Redeemer is the place you need to visit. Words cannot express how beautiful if the view up there. Make sure to book your trip before you go, otherwise you might be waiting for a while. Also the place is very crowded, but it worthy. Just enjoy yourself with the great view... More

This was my first trip to Rio, so I definitely wanted to make a trip to see this famous monument. It's quite the view up there too. Worth a visit!

Fantastic views of Rio. Not to be missed. The statue itself is massive. Not the work of Michelangelo, but then most of the time you see it from far away, so its mostly the sheer size that impresses.

there are so many things that can be used to describe this adventure........the drive there takes you through neighborhoods and then through the forest and then you are at the top of RIO. Once you are dropped off at the ticket area, you get in a line for the ticket. Only took 5 minutes. then you get in a line... More
