    Who is making the visit to the Tijuca forest must make a stop in the Mirante d. Marta. The view is beautiful. You can see the Christ, the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, Sugar Loaf, among other places. Simply charming.

    Climbing down from the corcovado, just a little detour and you'll discover a lovely (free) place with a very nice view. It's worth it.  more »

    Despite being near the community at peace is always good to go with a guide who knows the place. A beautiful view of the Guanabara Bay and Christ Redeemer.

    Absolutely phenomenal views. We just happened to go by this place so I didn't have a nice camera but still managed to get great shots with my phone, especially in the panorama view. This is a great Panoramic Picture spot. There's a good size parking lot leading up to it and if you're lucky, you might see some monkeys as you walk up to the view point.

    One of the best vantage points over Rio de Janeiro. Had to wait "in line" to snap the best angle of Christ the Redeemer, but it was totally worth it.

    You can reach it by car or walking, but the best is the bike ride from Laranjeiras.

    Best place in Rio to view all its historical landmarks. We witnessed many people rush in and out, take your time-relax and absorb the wonderful views or Christ statue, the airports, the city, Sugar Loaf and the many favelas. Beautiful views in each direction. We walked down to the city and then took a taxi-its a lovely walk downhill.

    This is a better vantage point from which to click photos of Rio (including Pao de Acucar) than the outlook at Cristo Redentor. Arrive just before sunrise or sunset.

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.
