Mercury, Venus, and Mars all have longer days, both solar and siderial (rotational) days.

Each rotation of Mercury takes 58.65 Earth days, Venus takes 243 Earth days, and Mars takes 1.03 Earth days (24.6 hours).

There could be exoplanets with a period of rotation longer than our day. The five dwarf planets (including Pluto) also have a longer rotation period than an Earth Day.

Venus. The day is very long - 243 Earth days, and it's year (it's orbital period to travel once around the sun) is 225 Earth days, which makes a day on Venus longer than it's year! Interestingly, this planet rotates in "retrograde motion" which means that it rotates in the opposite direction that Earth does. This means that on Venus, the the sun rises in the west and sets in the east!
