We only saw the outside of this stadium. There was a man outside of the stadium who was very entertaining. He was able to do tricks with a soccer ball for something like 5 minutes without dropping the ball. He even took his shirt on/off while keeping the ball bouncing.
Stadium well rebuilt. Close in design. Appears massive on the exterior but small on the inside. I small with a caveat - it can actually hold 90,000 plus screaming fans. Superb. It will host the kickoff of next year's Olympics. If you are in Rio over a week you should be able to catch a match there. .
Visiting Maracana was a great experience. Was very easy to get by using subway. For every football (Soccer in North America) fan out there is a MUST. There are toured visits by myself and my girlfriend decided to head on our own. The ticket for both of us was 48 Reals (Brazilian currency=24$ Canadian).
My husband wanted to visit this stadium so I went along not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. We took the guided tour and were able to sit inside the stadium from different areas - commentators box, corporate seats and lower section. We then went inside the change rooms and walked through the tunnel to the field and sat in... 更多

The Maracana is part of Rio's and Brazil's history by I believe that it worth a visit and not game unless it's a championship game. We went there for a Copa de Brazil game and stadium was at 10% of its capacity. We got the VIP tickets with the access to the buffet but we had just drinks there as... 更多
Booked a football match through the hotel reception. It was an excellent experience costing 160 rias each. Downside was the waiting in the back street in a hot can whilst the tour guide waited for last minute cheap seats presumably to make more money out of the punters. However worth the hassle to witness two top Brazilian clubs play
I've never been to a live soccer game being from Canada, we watched Botafogo vs Flamego and it was the most intense exciting thing I did in Rio. The crowds are so passionate about their sport the energy is contagious. Getting in was fairly quick, they are organized at the stadium. I highly recommend taking in a soccer game!
Flamengo were playing and we would like to watch the game so we asked for a tour which was 160-200 pp inkl. ticket and transport by van. We skipped that plan an decided to do it ourselves. Jumped in a taxi (20 min and 40 RS) from far end of Copacabana. When stepped out of the taxi (in front of... 更多
I was slightly diappointed by the experience as my expectations were probably quite high. Very little to see as pieces of history : a ball of Pele, shirt of Garrincha and a satue of Zico. Given the soccer history of Brasil I expected to see a lot more. Apart from that you have access to all stadium facilities as in... 更多
If you are into football then this has to be on your list. We took a taxi and did the tour with an English speaking guide. Took about an hour, the men enjoyed it!
