Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro

4.4
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.

  • We have visited this stadium during a tour of the city with our guide Udo von Rio extra tours. Udo told us a lot about it.

  • Interesting to visit the maracana Stadium. I really enjoyed getting to know the inner part. The tour was guided.

  • The maracana is really very beautiful. And it's not just being there on the lawn that is fascinating. Walk inside the building, go and meet your interior apart from the changing rooms, tunnel access to the lawn. We can also visit several other spaces. Very worth it! However, it's a kind of dangerous. I advise you to go to the Metro line2 that has a direct access to the stadium or go by taxi, uber.

  • This is a great location to jog/walk/skate or just even visit as a tourist. The stadium is downright beautiful. Take you time visiting the lockers and display sections. Jerseys of legends are kept on display in the locker areas for visiting. You also get to get on the stadium turf and kick the ball around at the far end and sit in the pavilion. If you like soccer, you will love to visit here. Take your time to soak in all of it. There is parking as well (for free!) about half a km away from the stadium in some of the quieter roads.
  • This is a place I dreamt of visiting when I was 9 years old after watching the Brasil v Italy WC Final in 1970. I fulfilled that dream in 2014 during the WC and visited three times... Absolutely magical I shall die a happy guy
  • The stadium is not well maintained. It has been renovated for the 2014 World Cup and already looks old. It's a shame. The "guided tour" does not worth the 60 BRL asked and can be done in less than 20 min. It's a big deception.
  • The guided visit was nice. I’m not a huge fan of soccer so I didn’t have much fun but my partner liked it a lot.
  • Nobody cant speak there english, entrance 65 reals, 2 years after reconstruction stadium disintegrates (quality work)
