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!

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

Amazing view of the city, and also a very beautiful view of Christ the Redeemer! Definitely worth the stop if visiting the statue of Christ.

This is a magic place, where you are not very high as Corcovado or Sugar Loaf, but you have a wonderful view of the Botafogo neihgbourhood and the best view of the Sugar Loaf, just in front of you. Its very easy to go there, not far away and you won't spend too much time.

This is the only place in town where you can get great views of BOTH Sugar Loaf/Urca and Corcovado/Christ statue. It is worth the drive.
