All About the Rio Sambadrome
Rio Sambadrome is home for the Rio de Janeiro Carnaval Samba Parades.
Located in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, the Passarela do Samba Darcy Ribeiro or the Sambodromo can easily be accessed from Rio’s International airport, the bus central or any of the central neighborhoods. The Sambodromo of Rio e Janeiro - known by Cariocas as Marques de Sapucai Avenue - is located right at the heart of Rio de Janeiro and thus close to various hotels, cultural centers, restaurants, metro stations and also to other Rio Carnival festivities such as the Terreirao, Cinelandia street partie, the Scala Rio, and the street bands competition. It is also close to the South Zone where a lot of the blocos, bandas and Rio Carnival balls take place.
