I have visited the Maracana many times during visits to Rio as well as when I lived in Rio in the 1970's. The place is a monument to football. Though it was renovated for the World Cup and Olympics, it still holds the mystical sense that history brings. It's incredible to see the field, the tunnel, and locker room where... More

The Maracana is amazing, a beatiful modern stadium, yet laced with history. I was lucky enough to see it on my first visit to Rio in 2008 so I saw it as it 'was' before a lovely modernisation for the World Cup in 2014. This time it was nice to see how the old girl has scrubbed up! It's a... More

Visited this stadium during the time I was in Brazil. It's a nice stadium however there were no games playing at the time. It's nice really well kept.

Wanted to visit this impressive stadium, the home famous of famous Rio football teams and the 2016 Olympics. We were fortunate that there was a match on - a South America Cup match between the local legendary Fluminese team and Liverpool from Uruguay. We caught an uber there and the subway back. We just bought tickets there, with the help... More

We were aware the stadium is in some financial turmoil following the World Cup and Olympics, however the lack of information is frustrating. The online website stated that there are tours, and reading a few reviews on here we tentatively believed that there was a chance of entering the stadium. However after completing a circuit of the stadium it was... More

I went there for the Paralympics opening. Even living in Brazil, I never had a chance to go to Maracanã. I found this the perfect opportunity. First impression was oh my god it's so huge! Are so many gates and the entrances, that if you don't park your car in the right side you're gonna have a long walk. I'm... More
