We went on a beautiful clear day so the views were wonderful. The downside was the queuing to wait for a train. We bought tickets at around 12 noon but they were for the first available train at 1:20, so a lot of waiting around....More

This is a postcard in Rio. Remember to go in a day with no clouds to see the view. It is better to go by train fro Cosme Velho.

The influx of tourists made it a bit of a tedious experience... it was too crowded so one couldn’t savour the experience. However the view is worth the trip.

Go early as it gets crowded and there is no control for how many people are allowed. Forget the train; take the shuttle bus. Use ticket kiosks to avoid some lines. Good souvenirs at the top. If it is cloudy don't waste your time

This is definitely the #1 tourist attraction in Rio. The monument itself is a huge art-deco located at a mountain top overlooking Rio. Magnificent views of the city 360 degrees make it worth the visit even if you are not going there to observe art...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
