Easy ticket pick up at a shop in Copocabana excellent advice from them on the metro and access. On the night the metro was easy and fats , avoided the crowds and taxis can run into road closures and blockages so the advice to use the safe metro very good. It seems the events at the Sambadrome typically start late Friday night was due to start at 8 but apparently started at 10; Saturday (the day we went) was due the start at 9 and started at 10:45. However we had some wet weather and this may have been the reason for the delay. In the general grandstand the seat are actually just Concrete. Take a cushion - but as soon a she parred starts everyone stands anyway.

A unique experience, the first day of the parade was really good, too bad it rained throughout the parade but it was not a problem for the Brazilians the atmosphere was at the party in the stands, I recommend the central stands (grandstand 6 towards the jurors) the view is excellent. For the year 2021 take the tickets in advance because arrived on the spot all the places are sold friends whom I had just met could not attend the parade of the famous Sambadromo because all the places were sold, really go for it in advance and the metro places very convenient because the queue at the metro station counter was at least 40 mins 1 hour.

Sparkling show full of emotions, to try at least once. Very disappointed by the transfer, it practically does not exist .... some metro tickets (value € 1) are delivered, leaving everyone to get by themselves with fragmentary information. Really shameful, so much so that it was better to take a taxi and go to the area (cost from Copacabana € 5), more practical, precise and certainly less risky

Block 8 has a great overview, but be there early enough to be at the front. You can sit, but you actually always stand for about an hour and then sit for a maximum of 20 minutes. That depends on the breaks between the moves. I think a block to sit or stand closer to, maybe even on the floor, I would like better next time. Still very good!

Amazing !!! You can user Uber to come close to the entrance, it s easier than metro. Enjoy !
