Carnival is already here! It’s the time of the year when the streets burst into explosions of colour, people put on their best and parties take over the cities everywhere. All around the world, celebrations take place in very different ways but each is unique, fascinating and loved by tourists who come to watch or take part. It goes from the elegant Carnival of Venice to the mind-blowing shows of Brazil’s Carnival, our personal favourite.
Samba rhythms and a multitude of impressive parades take over every bit of Brazil, as the whole country celebrates the joy of living for several days. Brazil’s magnificent and sensational culture quickly wins over anyone who comes into contact with it, be it locals or tourists. No wonder it is one of the favourite travel destinations at this time of the year: the music, dances, costumes made of colour, tassels and sparkle, the lights, fireworks, masks and make-up, the food and drink…. All of it so inviting that you can’t do otherwise but join in the fun and revelry of the parades.
The iconic Rio de Janeiro Carnival is the event not to be missed by anyone claiming to be a lover of experiences that involve all five senses. Cariocas (residents of Rio de Janeiro) know how to have fun like no-one else and during these days they find every imaginable way to party. They invite anyone wanting to take part to come and discover the true spirit of celebration with its dances, caipirinhas, parades and sleepless nights. For the more daring, it all culminates in a dive in the sea. Each region of Brazil has its very own way of celebrating Carnival, and although the best known is that of Rio de Janeiro with its procession of enormous floats and its samba school parade, the rest of the country has just as magnificent and spectacular shows..
