"Football history" Maracanã Soccer Stadium Tip by tim07


Built for the 1950 World Cup, the Maracana is one of the world's most famous & spectacular stadiums. Ideally the best time to visit it is for a football match. Even though there were no matches taking place during my stay I decided to visit it anyway. I'd heard that guided tours were available, unfortunately after a metro ride across Rio & short walk, the stadium was closed on my arrival. I did at least manage a couple of photos of the exterior.
