Where is the Sambadrome?

The Sambadrome is located in the region known as the cradle of samba.
It starts at Avenida Presidente Vargas, near Praça Quinze and ends at Rua Frei Caneca.
The large square at the end of the avenue is crowned by an immense and memorable concrete arch called the Apotheosis Square.
The avenue was named Professor Darcy Ribeiro, considering that it was he who idealized the parades in a fixed structure, since previously the structures were assembled for the event. It is a walkway approximately 700 meters long.

How to get to Sambadrome?

Ticket Rio Carnaval has transfer packages in partnership with the Alliance.
You can also go by regular bus, taxi and subway.
At the exit of the parades you will find taxis between sectors 9 and 11.

What time does the Sambadrome open the doors?

The doors open at 6pm.
Some people who do not have tickets to numbered places usually arrive early to secure the best seats.
The opening of the parades is done by King Momo, who crosses the avenue to greet the spectators.
On average one person attends a number ranging from 3 to 5 samba schools. So, arriving around 10 pm you will arrive at the time when the party will have reached its peak.
If you have a grandstand ticket, no place marked and healthy enough for the 12-hour marathon, arrive early and sit where you want.

How to dress?

Use whatever you prefer.
There are no rules or rules regarding what to wear for the samba parade (remember that people in Rio wear casual clothes even to go to more sober events). Celebrities and illustrious anonymous occupying the allocated chairs and luxury suites tend to be produced a little more.
In the bleachers the rule is to be as casual as possible.
