    Maracana
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Discover the legendary Maracana and get behind the scenes of the most important stadium in Brazil. After hotel pickup, travel with your guide to Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho, aka Maracanã Stadium, constructed in 1950 to host the World Cup. Celebrated at the time as the largest stadium in the world, the site has since been popularized as the Maracanã, after the vociferous parrots that flocked to the area. Follow your guide into the impressive stadium and learn about the renovations made for the 2014 World Cup. Peek into press areas and get a good look inside the locker rooms, with T-shirts of famous players lining the walls, and watch video clips of awe-inspiring goals that have given the Maracanã iconic stature. Mosey over to the team benches and admire the same vantage of the expansive field enjoyed by players of Brazil’s best teams, Botafogo, Flamengo, Fluminense and Vasco. Listen to how thousands poured into the stadium to pay respects to Garrincha, a futebol legend, whose remains were brought to the Maracanã. Imagine the roar of 183,000 fanatical fans during Pele’s 1,000th goal here, and their collective heartbreak when Brazil lost the final match of the 1950 World Cup. Finally, play out your fantasies and amble up the very ramp that players use to walk out onto the field, before enjoying transport back to your hotel.

The tour itself lasted about an hour but it's really only four stops -- the entrance hall, a locker room, the stadium, and then a press room. The guides provided a little history, but for the most part, we were left on our own. This is not like stadium tours in the US where you would generally receive a lot of narration and stops on the tour. Still, if you are a sports fan, this checks off one more item on your bucket list.
