Even if you are not a football (soccer) or 'futebol' fanatic, the energy of this centennial stadium is unmatched. All of the best players in the world have played or aspire to one day play here. The tour is ok, but watching a local match between the major teams in Rio is what you want. Safety is not an issue... More

A standard stop on daily tours of Rio- our most recent visit didn't see much as closed off in Olympic preparations and surrounding by fences and canopies. There is a nearby museum but really you need to be a fan.

Really not too much to say at about our visit. The Stadium is closed due to the Olympic Opening, Closing and Track & Field events taking place here in a few weeks. There are vendors outside selling Brasilia flags during photo stop. Would like to visit again in a few years and actually tour the stadium.

Stadium was closed due to remodelations for the Olympic games, we were only able to see it from the outside. If you are visiting rio before tge Olympics don't bother going its a waste of time.

For me, on a tour, seeing Maracana from the outside was sufficient, but it would be preferable to actually see a soccer match there.

If you are a big football fan Maracana is a must go while you are in Rio. They have tours to let you know the stadium, however it is better to go and what watch a nice Brazilian match.

I did not get to go in but I had to check it out. There was some construction but beautiful looking on the outside and there is a nice track around if you want to get a run in.

Visiting the Maracanã in June 2016 and it was closed we can only presume for upgrading work for the Olympics. There was no signing and nobody seemed able to explain what was happening. The work for the Olympics I understood and although disappointed couldn't really complain. What I didn't understand however is why the museum also had to be closed.... More

I really want to do the tour of Maracana but unfortunately it was suspended because of the preparation of the stadium for the Olympic Games. Our hotel did not know this and we only found out when we tried to gain access. Did get my photograph taken with the world cup statue at the front of the stadium.
