Sao Januário is a must-see experience for football lovers worldwide. The stadium is older, and located within a favela, but the sizeable security and police presence should dissuade any concerns you may have.

Washrooms are easily accessible, but alcohol (illegal in most Brazilian stadiums) is only available in the delegate's (VIP) area located across the pitch from the visitor section.

The energy of the crowd is electric, and as long as you're supporting Vasco you'll be treated like a carioca for the day!

A great experience.
Went With a tour group cost about £35 collected at hotel and left back there.
Match ticket ( basic) included.
Very very safe and it was a local Derby Vasco v Botafogo.
Could move around the ground no problem.
Alcohol freely available inside the ground no abuses.
Police on the ground made you feel secure.
Don't miss an experience like this if ever in Rio.
Memorable.!!

Despite is located in a bad neighborhood this is a must-see point when visiting Rio de Janeiro. It's not only a Football (soccer) Stadium from the begging of the last century, it's a place charged of history!!!!! All the brazilian work legislation was annouced here. The honor tribune is great!!! If you don't know, others football clubs tried to make Vasco da Gama, the Stadium owner, extrude the afro-descendant players in the 20s., Vasco da Gama refuse to accept that and the document is exposed there. The trophy room is amazing!!!!!

The stadium is the home of Vasco, Rio's 2nd largest football team (the 1st id Flamengo) and founded by Portuguese descendants. But the stadium itself is ugly, unwelcoming and not suitable for tourists. Thus, the neighborhood is far from the touristic zone fo the city, difficult to arrive and find, and quite dangerous. To visit a football stadium, choose Maracanã.

There's a big room with trophies, and all the fans can take photos.
There's a restaurant, the food is good. But it's too hot inside the room.
The sidewalk outside it's terrible, it's broken.
And there's a store to buy everything of the club.
