Excellent view from the top. Too bad we didn't stay for sunset, but we think the sunset from there would be very beautiful as you get full view of the city from up there.

The cable car ride was a little more frightening than I anticipated, but it was totally worth it! The views from both peaks are astonishing. The cars come quite frequently, so I think I waited a total of 15 minutes to board combined across the...More

This one of two attractions in Rio you must do. My preference is to time it in the late afternoon so you can see the sunset assuming it is a sunny day. There are lots of shops for souvenirs and food available at the top....More

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de

people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
