Such a beautiful place to visit in Rio, on top of having great views of the city there is a little walk where you can appreciate the local plants and animals. Finishing off with a cafe where you can admire the highest peak

It's so beautiful, the view is amazing. If you want to avoid line up go on SUNDAY or any religuis holiday ... We went on Sunday and the lines were less than normal. You still had to wait but at least it was manageable.
