Football Rio Style Is a Real Education

April 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 127

When you think of Brazil you are automatically drawn the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the vibrant energy of this amazing place with its endless taste for an exuberant lifestyle. Carnival atmospheres, spectacular beaches, stunning views and beautiful people are images that are easily conjured up when thinking about this fabulous city, but one thing above all else springs to mind in association with both the country and the city and that of course is soccer or football depending upon where in the world you reside.

Nowhere on the planet is the game more passionately loved than in Brazil and Rio in particular, it is after all home to the sensational Maracanã Stadium which once had in excess of an astonishing 200,000 people in attendance at a game. The ground is actually out of action until the beginning of 2013 as some major refurbishments and renovations take place ahead of it being the centrepiece of the 2014 World Cup in the country, but there are still other terrific stadiums at which to capture the beautiful game Rio style.

These are Botafogo's Engenhão Stadium or Estadio Olimpico João Havelange to give the arena its full name and Vasco's São Januario Stadium. Not only do Botafogo play their home fixtures at the Engenhão, but so too do rival clubs Flamengo and Fluminense, not always popular with the locals, but to a visitor to Rio seeking out a match to entertain them during their stay, it more or less guarantees that there will always be someone to watch and transport from the centre of town is excellent with the number 277 bus dropping off directly outside the ground.

By a significant contrast the São Januario is an historic structure over 75 years old, making its look appear a little dated, but what it lacks in modern architecture it more than compensates for with the incredible atmosphere it can generate. Sat on a picturesque hill and modelled in a European style with all four sides of terracing right up tight against the pitch, the noise during a full house is deafening and certainly something that needs to be experienced. Similarly it is on a bus route, in this instance the number 473 and again it also disembarks directly outside the stadium.

Fundamentally attending a football match in Rio de Janeiro will give a first time visitor a true introduction to a 'Real' Brazilian, such is the passion and adoration for the sport, it literally is a genuine eye-opener and an experience to behold. Anybody coming to stay in the city for a period of time will be keen to position themselves close to all the major attractions, and as the football grounds are served by excellent bus services it would definitely be better to check out Rio flat rentals in the major beach districts of Copacabana and Ipenema.

These beaches are indeed full each day of skilful individuals spending hours showcasing their footballing talents so it really is difficult to get away from the sport even if it is not top of the list for entertainment. Airport pick-ups are very often included in deals at these flats and the facilities of many are truly excellent. A high proportion of them overlook the sea and consequently allow magnificent sunset views, plus panoramic vistas of the striking Dos Irmaos peaks and of course the imposing Sugar Loaf mountain.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the best cities in the world, with sport and football in particular, a way of life. Visitors come from far and wide and at there is a great opportunity to view some terrific properties. Rio flat rentals vary depending upon the location but with miles of beach front apartments available the choices are excellent.
