The Corcovado or Christ the Redeemer has one of the most beautiful views of the city. Choose a beautiful sunny morning and take the little train that leads to the top of the statue and dazzle yourself with the beauty of the city's nature view....More

Well worth visiting, views were great. O moly negative was that it was crowded with people so would be a good idea to go early

It is busy, all the time! Despite the crowds it is a very well run attraction. Often it is cloudy in the mornings and the head of the statue is in the clouds so keep this in mind.

It is symbolic to have a statue high up in the mountain looking down the city. It’s impressive to look at the huge statue when you are up there but that’s it. Nothing else at the mountain top beside the statue and some souvenir shops.

Which is why you should see it when in Rio. Our tickets were for noon boarding time and it took us about half an hour to get to the top with the vans so it’s not that bad. There were lesser people by the time...More

This is a must visit for anyone travelling to Rio. It is such an impressive statue, but I would catch a bus up to the top. It’s a fair walk.

Pick a clear day for the best views. Get the train up as well. The mini bus people will Tell you there is a long wait etc but it is much better on the train than the bus. Choose your times to avoid the crowds.

The statue of Christ was breathtaking. It was surreal, larger than life. If you get the opportunity of seeing it at night from far, it's even more magnificent.

It is really crowded, always. But I think the best time to go is early in the morning, as soon as it opens...

Hi, we simply walked to lifeguard pier 2 on Copacabana and purchased tickets to travel by minibus to nearly the top which was simple, and we believe the cheapest way to go - if in doubt ask your hotel. They also have a video... More
