The wait to go up the mountain wasn't the best, however once you are up you can't complain and you forget about the wait. Great views all around!

With so much to see and do in Rio, this is just a must see for any visitor. Located in Urca, in the south zone of RIo this gem is easily accessible from both the Zona Sul beaches and the Centro areas.

The mountain provides a close up aerial view of the city, it's downtown airport and Corcovado, the cities number 1 tourist site. It also has a heliport that offers scenic tours over the beaches and around the Floresta de Tijuca ( the local part of the Atlantic rain forest, that hugs the coast of southeast Brazil from Rio south to Santos and beyond).

Beatiful view of the city and of the christ. Very preatty at night with great opportunities for pictures. I went at night and it ws a bit windy. 53 BR seems a little steep price but as many tourist attractions, you don't have much of a choice..

The visit at Pan de Azucar offers the possibility to fully appreciate the astonishing panorama of Rio de Janeiro, with the morros, the beaches, the development of urban areas, the favelas, the forests, the islands. The ascent is done by two spectacular cable cars, the first stops at cerro de Urca, the second takes to Pan de Azucar (avoid if you suffer vertigo). Here various platforms allow to have the magnificent views and take memorable pictures. There are also ecologic walks within the forest.

The place is great, well cared, and the view is stunning. The price is quite high for brazilians tourists, but once in live at least we have to go there.
Rio is wonderful and you can see the big amazing city from the top of the sugar loaf... unforgetable.
