    this place occupied our minds butconsidering the best time of day:)) just do it as earlier as possible and focus on the rest in Rio ✌️even if there is fog up in there, take your sun cream with you.

    The mini buses outside the ticket office can actually help you out by getting to the top faster. Price is higher though.

    Even early in the morning it's crowded so be prepared. But no visit to Rio will be complete without visiting it! Shuttles from Praca do Lido will take you there for much smaller fee than the tour

    Children aged 6-12 pay half the adult fare and under 5 get in for free. Try and arrive as early as possible so as to avoid big crowds and get the best shots at the top. The view up there is amazing!

    Emilio Borel · August 15, 2014
  • Emilio B.

    If you wanna come up there, first you gotta take the train down at Corcovado's Station. Adults pay 50.00 BRL (includes round trip ticket and admission to Christ the Redeemer monument).

    Emilio Borel · August 15, 2014
  • Alex H.

    Highly recommend hiking up from Parque Lage. Takes about an hour and a half and isn't easy going but it's a great feeling when you get up there! You can buy your entry ticket at the turnstile up top.

    There's a shrine underneath Jesus around the back. Don't do what I did, walk in noisily, take pictures, realise where I was and crip walk out.

  • Sabrina B.

    Purchase your tickets online 24 hours in advance so you don't have to wait hours until the next train up. Just before sunset is the best time to be going up.

    Beautiful views but people turn into animals at the top trying to get a decent shot of the Christ.

  • Jackie F.

    Go early before 9am to avoid the crowds, outstanding views, 33 Reals approx 30 USD £15 entrance fee and 25 reals for a taxi so don't get stung by anything dearer.

    A definitely must on your trip to Rio! Can get pretty crowded though, so don't expect an easy selfie-shot with the Christ without getting photobombed.
