Took the park Van up from Copacabana, took about an hour due to traffic, but dropped right off at the top no hassle. Best view in Rio, just way too many people jockeying for pictures. I got there about 10am on a Tues and it was still insane. There is a snack shop for beer with a view though.

Great view, beautiful visit. We took the subway to get there, it was good no traffic, after that we took a taxi to go up there and it was a gorgeous day and visit. Taking a taxi to go up there made me a little nervous, but it was fine. It is worth to go, but by car is traffic.... More

I had one day in Rio and this was on the top of the list. Despite my organised tour falling through I made the visit to this iconic statue. It didn't disappoint - pretty crowded but this provides the energy to the visit. Having seen so many photos from the top of Corcovado you feel like you have been there... More

We planned to arrive at 8.30 am taking a yellow cab from Copacabana. Arrived on time, ticket machine only accepts credit cards, staff quickly helped us through the system and we caught the 8.40 train up! Views were amazing, we'd waited for a clear day. Took lots of pics and enjoyed a cold drink in the cafe. Church was open... More

We went on a guided trip first thing in the morning and really enjoyed it. If you're Catholic you'll want to know that sometimes they have mass in the chapel under the statue. We came upon it and wished we had known because we only were able to participate in part of it. Our guide didn't know the schedule for... More

What an experience! This was a beautiful monument, even on a cloudy day. However, you must get there right when it opens to avoid crazy crowds and bugs! Enjoy!

if you are travelling to Rio for the first time, you have to see the Christ the Redeemer statue, but expect to wait in lines and it's so crowded at the top it's very tough to get pictures without random strangers in the background.

This place is fantastic a must see for anyone visiting Rio. Best to go early as it's very buzy. Most beautiful views I've ever seen.. Little restaurants and cafes on top of the mountain so it's a great day out..

Corcovado have an incredible view from the top, you have several ways of clim to the top, i would recommend the "train". There you might see the Copacabana and Ipanema beach.
