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.

  • Required if you switch to Rio go to Maracanã...si an air of history ... ⚽ ️ ⚽ ️ ⚽ ️ ⚽ ️ ⚽ ️ ... located approximately 20/30 minutes from Copacabana clearly depends on the traffic. A must for lovers of football ...

  • Wonderful historic stadium to watch football (soccer) and get some idea of how important it is to Brazilians! The crowd can be rowdy but mostly confine themselves to singing songs. The sections are divided so the fans of the two teams are separated. Make sure you buy a ticket to the right section (home team or visiting team) and do not wear clothes with the other team's colors! The roof covers almost all the seats (unless you are right near the field) so it is OK to go on a rainy day. Lots of police around so it is pretty safe, but it is still unwise to openly carry your smart phone or too much cash in your hands.
  • A great place to run, cycle and skate! There are always people exercising around the stadium. I've never had any problems there. There are vendors selling water, coconut water, snacks, beer. Well lit in the evening for cooler jogging. You can rent bicycles nearby. Of course very historical place! Many amazing events hosted here at Maracanã! Most recently the Olympics of course!
