It's a must see in Rio! Looks cool in pictures but even cooler in person and it's much bigger than I imagined. It's not the type of place you gonna spend tons of time in, so it's a good idea to stop by on the...More

Very original and pretty. It was actually larger than i expected and really colourful. It isn't ruined by tons of street vendors either but you will have to navigate through tons of people more preoccupied with selfies than just enjoying the moment. Also the neighbourhood...More
Worth visiting if its first time there; there are just a stairs with so colorful mosaic designs: going through it and take a selfie...that's it!!. Not recommended going there by night because it's not the same colorful explosion plus insecurity.
Must see this iconic staircase. Learn the story behind tiler, wonderful. It will make your exploration of the steps much more meaningful. The area is surrounded by arts, crafts and musicians. A mellow vibe but be alert because of the notoriety of the area.

While the place is very touristy - it is still beautiful. There are always lots of people, but as you climb up the stairs you will see less and less people so it's worth the effort.
This is a staircase with a lot of colourful tiles representing cities, countries, ... Make time to have a look at all the different ones, you will be pleasantly surprised by how many there are. It can get very busy, which will kind of ruin...More
There are tiles from all around the world. Situated near the historic center, the Lapa Arches and the Theatro Municipal, half hour here is highly recommended
Quaint attraction that is very crowded but worth a visit if you have time. We walked here from the Carioca Aqueduct. The area seems quite dodgy, but you'll be fine if you stick to where the crowds are.
I visited this on my tour with Rio by Bike. It's so impressive how much work went into this, and the final product is beautiful. There are a lot of people taking pictures, but it's not disruptive. Definitely worth seeing.
