What to expect:
Maracanã & Carnival – live this experience. Get to know the history of this great soccer stadium. Maracanã, officially called Estádio Mário Filho, was built to serve as the flagship venue for the 1950 World Cup. It was meant to become the biggest football stadium in the world. The official attendance of the final was about 173,000 paying spectators, but it is estimated that more than 200,000 witnessed the game live from the stands. During the 2014 World Cup, Maracana hosted seven matches, including the quarter-final between Germany and France (1-0) and the final between Germany and Argentina (1-0). Maracanã is owned by the state of Rio de Janeiro, but has grown to become the regular home of Flamengo and Fluminense. Let’s stop in front of the main entrance of the stadium, take photos on the statue of Bellini, captain of the Brazilian epic in the first world-wide won in Sweden. Then we will visit the Hall of Fame, where we will have the opportunity to enjoy the memory of the stadium. We headed towards the dressing rooms, where shirts of several soccer teams of Brazil are exposed. Of the, the great moment. The lawn of Maracanã. Have the feeling a player has when stepping on the stadium lawn and feel the energy emanating from it. Our next stop will be Sambodromo, the stage of Carnival parades. Built by Niemeyer, renowned Brazilian architect, in this space we will have an idea of ​​how the parade of the great Samba schools takes place during the Carnival.
After we already have a sense of what Carnival, how about experiencing?
Inside the samba town, in the shed of the Samba School of Grande Rio, we will have this chance. Let’s learn and see how Carnival is done behind the scenes. Let’s wear the costume and fall for the samba.
