Everybody knows that Christ the Redeemer is the symbol of Rio de Janeiro. No surprise, then, if you pop to the city and catch the train bringing you to Corcovado Mountain, you can enjoy this major work, which has been included in the Seven Wonders of the World since 2007.
But the tip that can make the difference to your trip is to forget about the train and get there instead by foot. In some spot the rise is quite difficult, but you will get benefit from the panorama. There’s nothing better than being immersed in Tijuca National Park, surrounded by monkeys, exotic birds and tropical plants!
