The train to Mariana is one of the most scenic things you can do in Ouro Preto.
It´s an old train with wooden decor that winds it way through the mountains to Mariana which is not far away, but it takes about an hour because the track is very steep at times.
The only people who might consider not doing the trip are people who are afraid of heights as there are some very steep climbs right on the side of the mountain.

The price for the ride is (in june 2010) 18 reais for a single ticket and 30 reais for a return ticket.
