Worth going. An amazing experience. I did this as part of a tour and would encourage you to do the same so as to avoid queues and get all the main sites covered in a day.

I only went to this site because friends insisted. Riding up, I noticed that the glass walls of the cable car were curved, and looked directly down. This cured a lifetime of being afraid of being in high places!

The site gives you a great view of the city below. You can spot all of the cities famous landmarks from this vantage. When we visited it was busy but not overly packed. It was well worth price of admission.

Worth a visit and a ride up on the cable car. Not a lot there but the view overlooking beaches and Rio are magnificent. There is a small museum to visit and a nice woodland walk.

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon
vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
