Most people think of Rio de Janeiro as the carnival capital of the world, and of course, if you visit the city, you certainly won't be disappointed on that count. However, Rio has a cultural side that, while not as globally celebrated, certainly makes it a worthwhile destination for theatre and music lovers. Its Rock In Rio extravaganza has become one of the most sought-after arena events in the world, and it has some of the most sumptuous theatres in all of South America. It is also home to Cidade das Artes, its very own City of the Arts. Go big and take in all that this most evocative city has to offer when you buy or sell Rio de Janeiro event tickets on StubHub.
Rio de Janeiro has so much more than carnivals
Start your visit to Rio de Janeiro by going to watch two of the productions that have become staples of the city's entertainment scene over the years. The first is Cirque du Soleil OVO Rio de Janeiro, which never fails to disappoint, with its trademark way of constantly reinventing itself for new audiences, while still staying true to its original performance values. Rio has also fallen in love with tribute shows; it's a city that thrives on nostalgia as much as modernity. So, shows like Carpenters The Musical Rio de Janeiro have a long history of captivating audiences. Make sure to include these when you book Rio de Janeiro event tickets.
Join the samba in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro has many large venues, both indoor and outdoor. Its climate is well-suited to open-air concerts and soirees, as well as sport, which you'll find aplenty here. Estadio do Maracana is one such place, where you can watch international football matches in season. It's a historic place for football, having been one of the main venues of the 1950 world championship tournament. You simply cannot visit Rio de Janeiro without throwing yourself into the Sambodrome, a massive complex that comes to life with Samba parades during the Rio carnival. Make sure to add this event to your Rio de Janeiro event tickets selection if you're planning to party in Rio.
Other Brazilian cities to visit
Rio de Janeiro is on the same coast as other, albeit much smaller resorts, like Santos, a great place to visit if you like coffee: it is home to the Museum of Brazilian coffee. You can also venture inland to the region of Minas Gerais to visit Belo Horizante, if only just to look at its absolutely massive Mineirão football stadium – it really is a sight to behold. A bit further up the coast, you'll arrive at Vitoria, which is an excellent place to watch or take part in kitesurfing events. Keep tabs on what's going on at StubHub.
