  • Worldwide Carnival Celebrations

    Rio de Janeiro dominates the world stage when it comes to annual Carnival celebrations. This is the biggest holiday when it comes to attracting visitors to Brazil. Millions of people come to celebrate in the city -- though only a relatively small percentage get into the official Carnaval Parade. This is not just an event, but a competition between different samba schools which represent different neighborhoods in Rio.

    Older than Rio's Carnaval and nearly as famous, the Carnevale of Venice is a stately and occasionally eerie festival that emphasizes elaborate traditional costumes, pageantry, and the iconic Venetian masks.
