In addition to the stadiums and painted streets, images from hundreds of sites across Brazil, including Iguaçu National Park and St. Michael of the Missions, are ready for the intrepid armchair explorer.

For the lucky ones heading to Brazil with both a ticket and an excuse to take the time off, Google Maps for mobile has been updated to offer directions for travel on public transport as well as turn-by-turn navigation for drivers.

Together with indoor maps of both the stadiums and 100 over venues like malls and airports across Brazil, you can literally be guided from your hotel room to your seat.
