Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
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.

  • Great experience...to be where the biggest best players in the world have been...I wish the tour was geared towards English speaking only separated from others it took the fun out...waiting for translation. Exciting tour!
  • The stadium was opened in 1950 to host the FIFA World Cup, in which Brazil was beaten 2–1 by Uruguay in the deciding game, in front of no less than 199,854 spectators on 16 July 1950.[3] The venue has seen attendances of 150.000 or more at 26 occasions, the last being on 29 May 1983, as 155,253 spectators watched Flamengo beat Santos 3-0. At no less than 284 times have crowds of 100,000 or more watched football here.[3] But as terraced sections have been replaced with seats over time, and after the more or less total renovation for the FIFA World Cup 2014, its original capacity has been reduced to the current 78,838.
  • Its my favourite team stadium, Also my favorite player, Neymar plays here, so I thought to leave a review. Thanks yo Neymar, Cavani Mbappe, Thiago Silva, Draxler, Areola and All PSG Players. This is the best team of all time and I love this team's stadium
  • Huge stadium, excellent if you like football (soccer, futebol, fútbol) and you want to know the Brazilian team history.
  • Excellent place for outdoor activities,great stadium, if you come with car,for parking space, try shopping Tijuca, there's no parking at the stadium, or best option take the metro( green line) to the station maracana .
