Recommended stop off up to Christ the Redeemer

If you are catching a taxi to Christ the Redeemer this is definitely worth a stop off for views back over Rio as well as up to the "Redeemer"

Fantastic views from the top! Bit of a bumpy ride up but worth it. Very quiet when you get up there hardly any tourists. I would recommend getting a uber or taxi and getting them to wait whilst you're talking photos. Pass through a lot of favela on the way, would be cautious about going alone especially if a woman,...

This place can be an alternative to see the Christ from. There are many nica viatas all around. We took many nice photos with the Christ on the background. As line up for the team was ridiculous we decided to stop by there instead. In any case The Christ was our MUST so we did go there the next day.

You can go walking from the Paineiras Visitors Centre until the D. Marta Balvedere, and there your are going to find one of the most amazing views from the Christ Statue.

We went walking with few friends, we crossed a colourful favella and we felt in the real Brazil, the walk is around 50min to the basement. I completely recommend!

Good spot to see Christ the Redeemer from afar, as well as the city below. If you've already been up to the statue, it might be a slight repeat..but if you are into a nice viewpoint, why not.

A nice ride with the car and than some walk on foot brings you to wonderful views of rio and niteroi. The relentless parking attendant will charge you 3 reals for parking which is next to nothing in comparison to the overall expensive Rio.

A place from which you can see the whole city and Cristo as well, try to go during the sunny day and view is fantastic. You can go there with taxi or uber, bus and then walk or walk from Cosme Vehlo but in that case try to avoid favela that's by the way and take just a little longer... More

This place is the spot to see the Guanabara bay, closer and more unobstructed to it. It is located in the middle of the road that leads to ‘Corcovado’, so, if you are by car, the visit is mandatory, but you can also go by vans, just ask the driver if the tour passes through this place. And spend the... More
