Must See Place in Rio

This is one of the must see places in Rio de Janeiro. The day we visited had beautiful blue sky. It was so amazed the people built this high up on the top of the rock mountain.

If you are in Rio you must see this view! You can see the whole city, it`s absolutely amazing, better in the morning.

As with Sugarloaf Mountain, arrive here early to avoid the crowds. Tremendous views from the top. The road is long and winding, but well worth the trip.

As a tour guide, if you are going to Christ and Sugar Loaf the same day, ALWAYS DO CHRIST FIRST! Traffic to Christ is better in the morning, the sun won't be as strong and it closes before Sugar Loaf. If you go by train, buy the tickets at least one day before. If you go by car, the store... More

This was absolutely worth the trip. Best is to book with an official tour service which includes drive to the mountain and access. It's cheaper than those day private tour guides.

I am not really a big fan of all the mass tourism places, but for this I was happy to make an exception! The statue is amazing, that, in combination with the location definitely makes it a must see when you're in Brasil.

I visited Rio in March 2016 and visiting Corcovado was a fabulous experience. I found my own way there, although I took one of the tour buses up to the entrance. Due to the cloud cover the vernacular rail did not have any visibility. Despite the crowds it was breath-taking - and peaceful. What a spectacular piece of history. I... More

This is a #1 destination for any Rio traveler. Views are stunning and the statue is really incredible. You cannot miss this. I think it's good to know a few things before you go. Most importantly, this is a very busy place. I went during Carnival, so getting there and back (i.e. finding taxis), getting tickets, getting a clear shot... More

When I was there in January it was super hot and way too packed with tourists at the top. There were too many people present to take photos and there is limited shade by the statue. In my opinion, it wasn't worth the 30 minute tram ride up and down.
