Allocated chairs (cadeiras) are located only in sector 12. The chairs are positioned in long rows of assigned seats on either side of the parate route. The rows of chairs located at the same level as the samba runway are easily the best value for your money. The most affordable of the Sambadrome’s assigned seats, allocated chairs are located in the Apotheosis Square, at the end of the samba runway.
They are located at the very end of the parade, close to the Apotheosis. It is in the Apotheosis Square — right next to the allocated chairs — where members of the Samba Schools that have just finished their processions gather as they dismount the floats and change out the heavy costumes.The chairs are located on slightly reclining steps like an open-air theater with a long lines of chairs facing the parade, located towards the end of the runway. Because you are at the very end of the parade, the intervals between the samba schools are of approximately half an hour long, which can bore you. It’s good you have your own chair assigned so you can wander around as you please, between the shows.
