Half-day Sugarloaf Mountain and Rio city tour with Corcovado, Maracana and Sambadrome

The neighbourhood of Urca is a jewel to be discovered slowly, with its old houses and rustic shops. The sight of one of the icons of the Marvelous City attracts our attention: Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain). The trip to the top of the mountain by cableway is in two stages: the first one goes from Praia Vermelha station to the Morro da Urca (224 metres), and the second from the Morro da Urca until the top of Sugarloaf (395 metres). From there you admire the most gorgeous panoramic view of Rio de Janeiro. The adventure continues at the legendary Maracana Stadium, setting of some of the greatest events in Brazilian football and also the most traumatic. The Maracana was inaugurated to host the FIFA World Cup of 1950, it originally seated some 200,000 people. The stadium was partly rebuilt in preparation for the 2014 World Cup and will be the host site for the final match; the current seating capacity is set at 78,000 and is the largest in South America.
