Why locals love it

Even though Rio de Janeiro is the most famous city in the world regarding Carnaval, São Paulo also has a huge and historical scene. The "Sambodromo" is the main place where the big schools and group present their creations of the year. But all over town you can find samba and small "blocos" dancing, drinking, having fun.

Why you should visit it

It's a very special time of the year to visit Brazil. Seeing it from a different perspective, in a city that is not by the cost, will show you another side of the national festival. Besides that, just in case you hate it or just want to take a break from samba, you'll have all the other cultural and party options in town.

Special tip

Try to find and join a "bloco de Carnaval", a local small group that just dances and have fun on the streets of the city. Free of charge, lots of fun.
