Combine the most amazing football tour with access to the iconic Maracanã Stadium and climb the top of Christ the Redeemer getting the best view of the stadiums in Rio de Janeiro!
Make your way to Maracanã where you will first take a lap around the outside of the stadium and have a short stop so you can appreciate the splendour of the two-time World Cup Finals host. There, you will be able to imagine the amount of history that took place since its opening in 1950, when Brazil hosted its first World Cup. Once the biggest stadium in the world, the stadium was used extensively during the World Cups and recent Olympics, and it’s often used for local games and concerts.
Along with our local host Matheus, a Flamengo fan that has been to numerous matches in the Stadium, we will jump in a guided tour through its facilities, with access to the pitch and dressing rooms!
Next, head to the Cosme Velho Train Station to make our way to Rio’s major attraction: The Christ Redeemer Statue at the top of Corcovado Mountain. Ride the rack railway train through the Tijuca rainforest, and up Corcovado Mountain (maybe you’ll see a monkey on the way up!).
Enjoy views across the whole of Rio, but especially from its beautiful stadiums, where Mateus will give you some amazing stories about the rivalries and the matches played!
