We went here as a last minute decision and really enjoyed it. It’s worth taking a bit of time to look closely at many of the interesting tiles. A word of warning, there were many people there when we went so it felt safe but...More

Go early, otherwise it will be hard to get a decent photo. I wouldn’t recommend going at night unless in a small group, as the area is a little dodgy. Be particularly careful of people approaching you, however friendly they seem, as one of our...More

We went early in the morning and skipped the crowds and was worth it. We came back in the afternoon to some of the restaurants nearby and saw the hordes of people on the stairs, and we’re glad we didn’t show up at that timr.

The steps are certainly worth visiting. They are pretty from a distance and close by. But when crowded they are less interesting.

Lots of colorful tiles from around the world created and maintained by Chilean artist Selaron. So many tiles it's hard to take it all in and fully appreciate the passion it took to create this. Fun thing to do!

This is an interesting hotspot to visit. The Chilinean artist, Jorge Selarón,has begun this project in the early 90s. One might actually feel all this cheerful energy going around the place, probably beacuse of its colours and designs... Visitors should not expect to take pictures...More

This place wasn't really on our radar initially but after a few days in Rio we decided to check it out. This is really a must-see! The stairs are beautiful, great for taking pictures, with beautiful artwork, stairs, and murals. You are right near the...More

We visited just before the carnival so boys in tutus and other disguised people added to the colors of this incredible place. Tiles come from the entire world.

None, but you can take a cab to the base of the steps and view from the street.
