How to get there

HOW TO GET HERE (PUBLIC TRANSPORT):
(*) There is a bus company 'Real', line 'Premium', blue A/C bus that passes through the international airport (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Galeao) and Santo Dumont, and Novo Rio bus station.
The bus leaves every 15 - 20 minutes.

(*) Take this bus for 12 R$ and ask the driver to drop you off at the entrance of favela Vidigal, which is the next bus stop after the Sheraton Hotel, on Avenida Niemeyer.

(*) At the entrance you can already see the moto-taxis. Take one for 2. 50 and ask for 'Arvrao' (translated as big old tree) / Casa Alto Vidigal. Everybody there knows our stop. Do not ask for the price, because when reading this you already know it's 2. 50 R$. The taxistas always try to rip you off and will ask for 5 R$, or even more (we've heard of stories like this).
Best is to have the 2. 50 R$ ready so you don't have to wait for exchange or discuss about it.
=> If you have a heavy bag give them 3. 50 R$. Remember, we're talking about 1 R$ or 0. 50 USD more so don't be penny-pinching. You want them to play on your side, not against you!

(*) You're not up to riding the motorbike? No problem, keep walking on the main road and after 30m you can already see the white VW taxi combi passes, parked in front of the pizzeria 'Pizza Lit'. Same price, 2. 50 R$ and make sure it brings you to Arvrao.
Arvrao is also the last stop, head towards the police and take this road to the end, to the viewing point. Walk down the steps and the house on the left with graffitis it is!
