Rio has so many places that offer awesome views that it's tough to pick the best. But I think the Parque De Cidade takes the Number one spot! The panoramic views from up here are breathtaking and you can sit for hours feasting your eyes on it. Look out for cute marmosets frolicking in the trees.

Amazing place to see Itacoatiara Beach end all residencial houses in that ecological place. A surfer paradise near Niterói down town.

Grew up hiking up to Parque da Cidade and saw it gain notoriety through hand gliders and tourists who visit and love the parquet! It is a great hike that can take anywhere from 30 min (fats trackers) to 2 hours (if you want take breathes and enjoy the experience bit deeper. Either way, make sure you go for the... More

Great place to enjoy the view from Guanabara Bay, Citys of Niterói and Rio. Go with enough time to enjoy the sunset from there. On the top there is a café where you can have a beverage, a snack or schedule a breakfast.

Although if you choose to walk up the mountain to the city park, you'll be sweaty and tired when you arrive, the view at the top is worth it! If you have a car, there's a car park right at the top, however on busy days be prepared to park further down as the car park is really small. The... More

Nice steep drive up resulted in good views back at Rio, Christ, sugarloaf and the Niteroi surrounds. If you have a car or someone that can take you definitely a good option.

Visiting Niterói is a blessing on its own for its small town charms, nice tourist attractions and friendly locals. This park is special not only for the chance of relaxation and connection with nature, but also for the magnificent view it provides to Rio de Janeiro. Certainly most of my all time favorites pictures of Rio have been taken from... More

This a good spot for visitor to Rio de Janeiro and Niterói. A wonderful view from the mountain and if you would like to fly this is a good place. There is a place for a non-expensive snack.

This is a must visit if you want to see Rio from a different point. Breathtaking place and not crowded at all!
