Visiting Rio de Janeiro is an unforgettable experience, but now imagine visiting the Wonderful City during the hottest month of the year in the southern hemisphere and by the time of the Carnival celebrations! With a mix of European and African influences, in Rio's Carnival dominates the samba, colours, creative costumes and the typical and contagious joy of the Brazilian people. In the week preceding the abstinence of worldly vices, the country surrenders body and soul to this unique party where the fun has no limits!

The city turns into a giant party stage where several Carnival Blocks and many districts organize street dances. If you have opportunity, participate in a rehearsal of a samba school or watch the famous parades in the Sambadrome, where the main attraction takes place, but know that you have to reserve your place in advance. In addition to the Rua Marques de Sapucaí, where you can also visit the Museum of Samba, it is in the Avenida do Rio Branco, the Estrada Intendente Magalhaes and Rua Morais Cardoso that the party reaches the highest proportions. If you are an adventurous person and know how to dance samba, you can always sign up and participate in the Carnival Blocks. Watch the coronation of the King Momo and enjoy this unique party!
