Overview

Visible in the distance from the top of the Corcovado and the whole Parque do Flamengo, Ponte Rio-Niterói was the longest bridge of its type in the world when it was finished in 1974. Although officially known as the President Costa e Silva Bridge, it is rarely referred to by that name, famous instead by the title that started off as a mere nickname. If you have a car, this 8.25 mile (13.28 kilometer) snake will take you on a day trip to the city of Niterói.
