If you're going to see the Cristo Redentor, take the train up instead of a van or a car. It's worth it! Also, you can buy the tickets online on the trem do corcovado website (in any language) for R$75, which is cheaper than buying...More

When I was going up Corcovado this looked like the best option to go there for me. There are other ways but this probably is the most relaxing one. You buy your ticket and during the slow ride you can enjoy the view you have....More

The train is a great way to get to Christ the Redeemer Statue provided that you go early, to avoid the worst of the queues and the midday sun, and book ahead online to jump the queue. I unfortunately did neither, arriving at the ticket...More

What better way to get to Christ the Redeemer than to take the train. Before going, I had the concierge buy my tickets online. They told us to be there 15 minutes before because we all had set times. We arrived around 9am. The ticket...More
