Watch the Sambadrome parades from a luxury covered box
Today is free for you to relax after a late night at the Magic Ball.
In the evening a private guide will transfer you to the Sambadrome, the stadium of samba, to watch the spectacular parades. Over two nights the top Samba schools in Rio de Janeiro compete to take the crown of carnival champion. The parades begin at 9pm and continue until around 4am with each Samba school having 82 minutes to parade along the 700-metre long runway, with thousands of participants and elaborate floats.
You will be located in a camarote, a covered box, in Sector 5 which is the best way to see the parades in style. The camarotes come complete with an open bar and buffet so you can enjoy the parades in comfort, and you are also protected from the rain, should the weather become inclement.
Stay at the parades for as long as you wish and when you would like to return to your hotel your guide will be waiting to take you back the Copacabana Palace.
