This statue is the symbol of Rio de Janiero and one of the wonders of the modern world. It offers a commanding view of the whole city. The best way to get there is on the cog railway. Tickets can be purchased over a month in advance from the website: tremdo corcovado. A specific boarding time is purchased so it... More

It is so much smaller than you'd think and people are quite rude taking photos! You must buy tickets and take a train. At the top you then take stairs - a lot! Or a few and an escalator. Quite cold & windy but views are great!

If you are in Rio, I think it's mandatory to visit Corcavado (aka The Christ). Take a taxi to the tram station (about 30 realis from Ipanema). Round trip on the tram is 78 R. Going up, you'll see Tijuca forest (no native trees here - transplants from around the world). At the top, you'll have some steps to climb.... More

We were the first people to get to the monument, and we did it on the Saturday the weekend before carnival, for less than $60Rs/person (two people) including door to door from near Copacabana. We used Uber and then a van. Here is how: 1. Get up early (obviously). We were aiming to get to Paineiras train station for about... More

We went in the morning and beat the cruise ship tours - yes it was crowded, but we didn't have to wait on either of the train, that took us up the mountain or access once we got there. There were no clouds, which can be a real issue as the next day, you couldn't even see the statue. --... More

This is a must see in Rio. Last year we took the mini bus route, but this year we went with the kids and took the little train. I definitely recommend the train. Faster, memorable and kinda cool.

It is a must see if you visit South America. This icon of Rio de Janeiro can be seen from anywhere in the city. The train ride is exciting through the woods & sloppy hill. The view from the hill top is amazing and good photo opps. I visited twice during my first visit to Rio.
