New section on website provides useful services, tips and information for fans and tourists

Much more than 64 matches between 32 national squads, the World Cup is a big opportunity to see the best Brazil has to offer, particularly in the tournament's 12 host cities. In order to aid domestic and international visitors to make the most of their experience, the World Cup Portal has prepared a detailed guide of the host cities.

The service, available in Portuguese, English and Spanish provides tips on moving around, thus, supplying maps of the metro systems, the average price charged on taxi runs between airports and stadiums, as well as information on special bus lines that will be put into operation during the tournament.

At the same time, the Host City Guide offers tips on tourist sites, cultural collections, highlights of the local cuisine, climate conditions, exchange bureaus, contacts for embassies and consulates, in addition to a list of mobile phone applications that may come in handy.

In the sporting side of things, fans may check out a full profile of the national squads playing at each host city, make simulations using an interactive table and find out more about the 12 World Cup stadiums through pictures, videos and infographics.
