Tips from locals
The view of this place is amazing. You don't need a tour guide to visit it but try to go earlier as you can because the whole year is a lot of people visiting this place.

“The monument overlooking Rio de Janeiro have beyond breathtaking views. It is considered one of the seven new wonders of the world. There are three ways to get to it. You can take a train, van or hike. The train is the most famous and traditional way. The train will take you through Atlantic Forest almost to the top of the Corcovado Mountain. Make sure to have you camera ready and look to the right when the train is almost in the top. I suggest to pick a beautiful sunny day, so you don't miss any of the spectaculars views. ”

“If you are taking a day to visit downtown Rio, Museu do Amanha is a nice place to stop. If you are short on time, the museum inside is not a must, but take a walk around the museum and Praça Mauá. Weekends have a lively vibe.”

“A hot spot for good restaurants and bars as well. Have lunch/ dinner at Puro or Jojo's and at night go up the road to the bars on rua Pacheco Leao. Or to have a typical Brazilian meal/ delicious meat, go to Rubayat, the restaurant where you look out over horse races at the inner city jockey club. In the same area you have the beautiful open-for-all art school Parque lage which is worth a visit, they have recently opened a good relaxed restaurant inside. ”
