Good for a photo stop!

It's good for a photo stop to take a few pictures, even if you don't do the stadium tour. Worth a short visit for 20 minutes and it is included on many city tours.

Just a large stadium and everything is overpriced. Better to book our online. Don't hang around the motorway too long!

We took a taxi there but unfortunately it was closed. Plenty of photo oppurtunities outside and we managed to find a replica World Cup to hold up!

Visited as part of a tour. Wonderful to see the stadium in the flesh. Memories of John Barnes' wonder goal not to mention the Rio Games and Paragames. Goosebumps moment and one to treasure and say "I was there".

after the Olympic games Rio2016 the stadium has been completely abandoned... such a beautiful venue... Even light bulbs have been stolen... very sad to see this.

It's a must if you like footie. It's a religion in Brazil. The rumour is Christ the Redeemer points to the two most important things for Brazilians - the beaches and the Maracana. Great to see scale and pay homage. If you don't like football then not worth the trip

Unfortunately, the stadium was closed to visitors when we arrived but even from the outside it's worth seeing such an iconic Stadium. This is even more relevant if you are a football fan. It would have been better to enter the Stadium but just being outside at the ticket office was second best and worth doing.

A favorite sporting event is going to the Rio Maracana Stadium for a soccer match. Very Exciting!!! ⚽️⚽️ Lots of cheering/chanting/screaming/ confetti/dancing/music/the Wave & fireworks. We like the inexpensive Cement Grandstands so we can interact with the fanatic Local Braziliero fans & have room to move around. When Flamingo plays, the place is packed. Box seats are excellent & close... More

it was exciting to visit this stadium, although we were only able to see it outside since at the moment it is closed to the public to access, so make sure you find out with the hotel before you go, unless you dont mind just going outside
