We recently spent time in Rio attending a Conference. This was one of the attractions we all wanted to do - on our first sunny day, we visited it. It is as majestic as all the rave reviews written - you simply have to do this!!

It's an amazing experience but unfortunately we visited on a rainy cloudy day. Still to be there and see the place and statue is worth it

With my time in rio coming to an end and no sign of the overcast weather letting up- I decided to venture up to see Christ on a cloudy rainy day. If you're going up to take panoramic shots of the city wait until a clear day- if the day is overcast you won't see anything but clouds and fog... More

It was overcast and cloudy every day that I was in Rio, but I did get lucky on my last day in Rio and the sun came out for a short time. As soon as I saw my very first viewing of Christ from Ipanema Beach, I gathered my things quickly and ran from the beach to catch a bus... More

What an awesome experience. It took about 30 min to get to the top of the mountain. The train runs you up to the top and a quick elevator trip after that lands you right at the base. There is a platform you can go out onto to get a really good shot. Pretty crowded up there on nice days.... More

This is something that you must see. Choose a clear day, otherwise you will not see the beauty of view. Heres my tip: Negotiate with a taxi driver or choose the oficial transportation to the Crist (ask in the hotel/hostel), cause is very dificult to reach a taxi when you are over there (on top of the mountain). Even if... More
