The Maracana itself must be seen, too bad that it's closed! You can only take pics from outside. Very disappointing not to be able to visit such a great building.

Well, my wife is a huge football fan and was really looking forward to visiting the stadium, not just from the football point of view, but also the huge part it played in the Olympics, which happened just 5 months ago. Sorry to disappoint everyone, but when we arrived I spoke with on of the guards at the ticket booth... More

As almost everybody knows soccer is a religion for Brazilians. Consider Maracanã ("Maraca") to be the most importante temple. Whether in a tour or in a match, the Maraca is a must see for a Rio visitor. P.S.: it is not the same after the reforms for the World Cup, but it is still worth a visit.

Went there on the 2/01/17 only to find the whole stadium closed.The website stated that the tours ran every hour. We took a taxi there , the vendor outside told us the tours had not ran since the Olympics. Is it too much to ask for one of the clowns there to change the info on the website ???

For football fans it's a must do. The football season had ended but We got a chance to watch a charity match with 60,000. The atmosphere was great. Brazil Expeditions arranged it all.

Closed because of the Olympic renovations these months they said. I know it's Brazilian, but please ANNOUNCE. Hondreds of tourists standing there and traveled there but had to go homewards as it was NOT announced on their website.

One of the largest stadiums in Brazil. It is an unforgettable experience to watch a soccer match between local Rio teams, called "classico". (Flamengo, Vasco da Gama, Botafogo, Fluminense)

We spent about 10 mins here on a city tour. I'm not into football and was unimpressed. If you are a fan be aware, they don't do tours inside and you can't get in the stadium.

My wife and I visited for the yearly charity game hosted by Zico. First off, the stadium is really very impressive. I'm a bigger fan of stadiums that are tiered, but being able to see every single of >70k fans (like in the Maracanã) is quite an experience. That's where the good stuff ends. Every place/show is as good as... More
