If you go to Rio De Janeiro and don't see Christ the Redeemer then you didn't visit. This is a must see when traveling to Rio. The crowds can alter your pictures, so arrive early or go during an off-peak time. On the way up go sit my the window so your pictures can be amazing.

Its amazing, we got the train up which was awsome, although if your not good with heights sit on the inside and not by the window. You need to buy a ticket and wait for a while as its quite busy, probably nicer to go really early in the morning as it gets quite full by Christo, but not yaking... More

A must see. Apparently the lines become long at peak tourist times, so plan to go early or out of season (or ensure you're protected form the sun to stand in long lines). All that said, definitely worth the visit.

This a part of the Rio experience, like seeing The Statue of Liberty or going to the top of the Empire State Building on your first trip to NYC. It is well worth it.

Probably the #1 must see attraction in Rio. I visited with a group, and we took the train up to the top, then walked up several flights of stairs to walk around the base - just huge. Lots of other people doing all sorts of antics to capture a photo, including laying on the ground! We saw some cute marmosets... More

Rio de Janeiro is not my favourite place, but I had to see the Christo. it was an awesome experience. From the top one can see the sugar loaf as well. Watch out for Pick pockets. Buy yourself an expensive souvinier. The funicular was a scary ride, as strange people get onto it. The view from there is beautiful. Go... More

I mean, you came all the way to Rio, how could you miss the stunning views from up here? Advice, arrive super early to avoid the long lines.
