We went here as a part of city tour and were delighted to be there. It is in the middle of a favela and our guide told us to be very very careful! There is no entrance fee and you can spend as much time...More

I didn’t have high expectations for this place given many reviews of the crowdedness but having come here on a Monday morning (not peak time) it was surprisingly not crowded and very interesting to explore in detail. If you are more interested in taking photos...More

Must-see and really great to walk. No entrance fee thus you can come whenever you want. As an early bird (7-8 AM) you will have few people... afterwards it's just super crowded. For nice picture opportunities during peak time walk all the way up -...More

The steps are very unusual and decorated with a range of tiles from all over the world. At the base the artist put a set of tiles explaining in Portuguese and English what he was doing.

This is such a beautiful simple place to see... It is such a shame though that the perimeter is surrounded by obscure environment. I did not feel safe going there, specially at night... Would not recommend anyone to go there alone, and to be very...More

We saw the stairs twice on our trip. First in the afternoon around 2pm– when it was packed with people! And once before 8 in the morning– when there was no one around! Getting free reign to enjoy the steps and take pictures without getting...More

We visited these famous stairs after seeing so many photos of people on the internet. When we got there, it was pretty packed for a Monday early afternoon but we were able to get some good photos.

A good alternative stop ! Interesting story about Selaron. While not in the same league as Corcovado, Sugarloaf et al a worthwhile piece of Rio’s tapestry.

I can't believe that I had never heard of these steps before we went to Rio - the Escadaria Selaron or "Selaron Steps" created by the artist Jorge Selaron, a Chilean by birth. Some time after moving to Rio, he decided to renovate the steps...More

A little hidden in Rio in the neighborhood Glória you find this beautiful part, so colorful and a very interesting place. Above the stairs you end up in one of Rio’s Favela but this one is one of the nicer and safer one. Although you...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.

None, but you can take a cab to the base of the steps and view from the street.

It will cost you but take a taxi. It isn't in the safest neighborhood and there are not signs to get there.
