Not a review of the stadium so much, but the official Maracana Stadium website says that the tour is on every hour, 5 days a week. We arrived at the stadium looking for the entrance only to be told that the tour has not been available since the Olympics finished due to 'economic problems'. Considering this is one of Rio's...

This is an iconic stadium and a must see for all football fans. We saw Flamengo play Santos on 27/11/16. The atmosphere is electric, the Flamengo fans are in a league of their own and thankfully they won 2-0. The outside facade has been kept as original but the interior has been totally refurbished in line with modern day standards... More

Went to watch Fluminense play and the Stadium was about 1/3 full but man can the Brazilian Fans put on a show! Felt like the Stadium was full. Definitely try and plan your trip around a high profile game at the Maracana.

I will give you an American's point of view as I have been to very large sporting events around the US and the world. As a big soccer fan this was a great experience, but not as crazy as I would have liked. We saw Flamengo v Santos play and it was a battle of two teams ranked 2nd and... More

Stunning stadium - even after the refurbishments you can still feel the history. We went to see Fluminense play here - the prices were very good (20 reals each). Fluminense and Botafogo play most of their home games here. Walking to the stadium felt safe. Police were visible throughout. Excellent transport links via the Metro. The noise of the crowd... More

Went here for the Flamengo - Botafogo match and was a bit disappointed. Couple of chants yeah but the fans that claim that they´re the most passionate when it comes to Football were actual quite poor when it came to chanting for their team. If you want to really witness passion then go to visit a game in Argentina or... More

We got the bus to Maracana, it was raining but walked all the way around it. Everywhere locked right - a missed opportunity for tourists.

We went there by following the train maps, schedules - easy to follow. Went around but did not go inside the stadium.

Be prepared to be one amongst 100 thousand people. Very nice to see and experience the craziness of Brazilian football but not so fun to be stuck being one of the many people trying to get home.
