Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro

(4.5/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web)

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.

  • I met the 2016 Maracanã. This time I wanted to meet him with my son but it was not possible because it is currently abandoned. Incredible.

  • Imposing. a stadium beautiful to which can access is quietly by transport public (metro, bus. train) and of way agile and simple-if can appreciate some concert. party or show at gral recommend it over the typical tour where Sun can see the empty stadium-is moving to arrive and see the vast Stadium bleachers filled slowly-very nice ride.

  • Mythical Stadium more worth to say. But especially Stadium closed to any visit. It'll have do you from the outside which is still pretty ugly (pk is old too). It's still impressive.

  • 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!
