  • The place where they create Carneval. Had the Chance to do a behind the scenes tour with one of the 14 samba schools in Rio. Can highly recommend to book the "carnaval expeience" tour.
  • Perfect way to learn more about carnivals
  • Beautiful place with , friendly people..

  • The best place on earth, where the top Samba schools create their floats and costumes for carnival 'in secret.' During the hype of the carnival season, there are midday showcases by a Samba school where it presents its theme for carnival through song and dance backed by a live Samba orchestra. The major television station also broadcasts it live.
