Velvet moments: travel photo – panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro

The best place for the most spectacular views of Rio de Janeiro is from atop the Corcovado Mountain at the foot of the Christ the Redeemer Statue, the city’s iconic landmark. It can be a long wait for those who want to get up there (by train) – I suggest taking a taxi from the base station instead – but the incredible panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro are absolutely worth the wait!
