Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Tour a legendary soccer arena and sit on the Brazilian team bench at Maracanã, once the biggest stadium in the world. Check out the VIP seats, press boxes, workout areas, stands, and locker rooms during a half-day insider's tour guided by a renowned soccer journalist. You'll hear all about Brazil's victories and defeats, and kids can have their free kick game on the field. Call in advance as groups are limited to 13 people. Otherwise, check out the bronze statue of Hilderaldo Bellini outside the stadium, or even better, get a ticket for a local match.

  • It's worth visiting here if you can come and check out football match. The energy is incredible, and the crowd is unforgettable.
  • Maracana Stadium was the place of very important events such as World Cups soccer matches/finals , Olympic Games Events and concerts. It is a place that you should visit if you love soccer!! Just be careful about the surroundings and metro stations as the stadium is located on a not very safe neighborhood.
  • i rember when i went here for the world cup and dear lord the fans were crazy i was mad at germany but still what a game to never forget GOTZEEEEEEE 113
  • Completely renovated and new visit route. But closes too early (5pm) and a bit expensive.
  • Good to watch a match. Ticket office is far away feom metro.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
