For passionate football fans - tour Rio's Maracanã Stadium, host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final and a key player in the 2016 Olympic Games (not included).

Day 2 CHRIST THE REDEEMER AT THE CORCOVADO, SAMBA SCHOOL PARADES AT SAMBODROMO

Afternoon

Journey 710 meters up to the summit of Corcovado Mountain by rack train early this morning for a sublime panoramic view over the city. Standing at the holy feet of Christ the Redeemer, revel in the unobstructed views of lush mountains and island-studded deep blue waters that make up Rio's dramatic backdrop, and listen as your guide points out the sights of the city from atop this granite peak.
