Great views here, back across the bay, able to see Sugar Loaf, Cristo and all the famous Rio peaks. Clear views, little haze, with views of the Niteroi bridge also. This spot has some amenities and restrooms. This is also where lots of hang gliders take off, so there was a buzz from that activity today also. I got some... More

Whatever way up is worthwhile to catch up with one of the most beautiful sights in the Rio de Janeiro area. The view of Rio across the Guanabara Bay is really something that will certainly remain forever in one's eyes. May one is also prone to flying, the point is an old but still an ongoing one to have a... More

Rio has so many places that offer awesome views that it's tough to pick the best. But I think the Parque De Cidade takes the Number one spot! The panoramic views from up here are breathtaking and you can sit for hours feasting your eyes on it. Look out for cute marmosets frolicking in the trees.

Grew up hiking up to Parque da Cidade and saw it gain notoriety through hand gliders and tourists who visit and love the parquet! It is a great hike that can take anywhere from 30 min (fats trackers) to 2 hours (if you want take breathes and enjoy the experience bit deeper. Either way, make sure you go for the... More

Great place to enjoy the view from Guanabara Bay, Citys of Niterói and Rio. Go with enough time to enjoy the sunset from there. On the top there is a café where you can have a beverage, a snack or schedule a breakfast.

Although if you choose to walk up the mountain to the city park, you'll be sweaty and tired when you arrive, the view at the top is worth it! If you have a car, there's a car park right at the top, however on busy days be prepared to park further down as the car park is really small. The... More

Nice steep drive up resulted in good views back at Rio, Christ, sugarloaf and the Niteroi surrounds. If you have a car or someone that can take you definitely a good option.
