Ponte Rio-Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro

(700+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
At the time of its construction, Ponte Rio-Niteroi was the second longest bridge in the world, and, although it has since slipped down in the rankings, it is no less impressive a structure today. 13.29 km (8.25 mi) long and reaching a height of 72 m (236 ft), the bridge offers an expansive cityscape of Rio de Janeiro, including the downtown skyline and Sugarloaf Mountain. To get a sense of the scale of the bridge, take the ferry and view it from the water.

  • A lead so good, a straight and put a 80 km/h radar makes no sense. Could change that ... ....

  • The bridge is huge and the feeling is of adrenaline when you walk by it, even if by car, enough to give a chicken rs

  • When I went to the River, visited Niteroi across the bridge one day by bus, the view is beautiful, despite the congestion.

  • Beautiful bridge spanning the river between Rio de Janeiro and the town of Niterói. Affords beautiful views of Rio especially at sunset.
  • The ride thorough the bridge was one hell of an experience.
