A visit to Rio wouldn't be complete without a trip up Corcovado to experience the stunning views over the city, and this unbelievably stunning statue. Even if the weather's not the best, this landmark should not be missed. If you're unable to walk up the 200 plus steps, there is a lift. Lots of photo opportunities and be sure to... More

This was a great view of Rio, and a great photo op but not much else. Go early in the morning and plan to spend about 30 mins at the top. I would take a bus up and there is only one company that owns the right to travel to the top, take them.

Great to see this iconic statue. It is of course very crowded up there even though we went early. Also, sadly it was covered in fog once we got to the top (even though it was clear when we left that morning) so we didn't get any views from the top. But it's a huge statue and was great to... More

Caught the train up to the summit and decided then to take the step route for the rest of the walk up to the statue, this to take in the views en route. Fortunately the day was quite clear so the views were good but exceeded when we reached the viewing platform of Christ the Redeemer. The statue itself is... More

We walked up to the top of the mountain and had to pay to go round to see the front part of the statue. Well worth the price we made, except it was super busy! Take a camera and a good pair of shoe!

We had a perfect, clear, sunny day to see Cristo. We took the train up at 8:40am and purchased our tickets the day of. It was a little crowded at that time, but we were still able to get some good pictures. The views from Cristo are beautiful.
