A Word about Orientation at Rio Sambodromo

As indicated in the map, the front boxes of the Sambodromo are located closest to the samba parade runway on either side of it. Next comes the luxury suites which are located at an elevation, thus giving a broader view of the entire show.

Furthest away from the runway are the grandstands, also at an elevation. The allocated chairs are located closer to the end of the runway. If looking towards the end of the runway, even numbered sectors flank the right side of the Sambodrome, while odd numbered sectors are on the left.

The image below represents the new design of the sambodromo in 2025. You are able to see the types of tickets for the Rio Carnival represented in colors.
