Sambadrome Sector Map

Sectors are identified by numbers, which increase as one moves along the parade runway toward the climactic conclusion at the iconic arch of the Apotheosis Square. Even numbered sectors are located on one side of the parade route and odds on the other. The default prices above include tickets for Sector 12 - 13 of the Sambadrome.

An upgrade is available to sector 7. Generally sectors 4 - 11 are considered as having a wider view of the parade, and sectors towards the middle (6 - 9) of the of the Avenue are often deemed to have the best views as this is where the judges are based and where performers may be giving it their all. Sector 9 is the most expensive as it is very popular with tourists, and is generally known as "The Tourist Sector". If you wish to be around lots of other English-speaking people and have great views, then this would be your best option. Given that the Samba Schools have an allocated time to perform, spectators toward the end of the parade route may notice paraders speeding up the performance to avoid losing marks by going over the allotted time.

Please see the map below to visualise where the sectors are. The parade route runs left to right.
