When you are hungry eat a loaf!!!
There is a hill in the way to theChrist Statue called Dona Marta where you can see many interesting parts of Rio, from there you can see how gorgeous our Guanabara Bay is.
I love stopping by before going to the Corcovado Mountain!
When the Christ is cloudy, for sure the best option is going down a little and see the Dona marta Hill, another spot where you can see the whole city of Rio de Janeiro.
You can also have a helicopter ride from this hill, a little bit pricey but for sure a great thing to do!
Here you can see myself, JP and Dru enjoying the best of Rio.

In the magazines, in the travelogs, on tv, everywhere when you see a picture of Rio, this is the one you are used to see! and the place where they take the picture is exactly at Dona Marta Hill. I took this one in black white, and this is Rio with the Sugar Loaf and the Bay area, this Bay is called Guanabara!
Let me know if you like the photo!

The view from the top of Mt. Corcovado is marvelous and popular, but an even better - indeed the classic - view of the city can be had from this viewpoint halfway up. It is situated on a ridge that juts out eastward from the summit, and it's just off the drive up the mountain and near the helipad for sightseeing flights. It's not on the tramway line, so you need a car to reach there.
Straight upfront is the classic view of the Sugarloaf cradling the Botafogo Bay. To the left, you can see the entrance of the Guanabara Bay and Niteroi on the opposite shore; further left towards you is the center of the city. You can watch airplanes flying in and out of Santos Dumont, making hairpin turns as it leaves or approaches the runway. Even further left, you can see the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and the Maracana Stadium.
To the right of the Sugarloaf, you can see the beachfront neighborhoods of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon, as well as Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.
