Hey,

Well I'm all booked up accomodation wise, but I was just starting to look into tickets & I'm clueless I was under the impression it was a mainly street based event but it seems that there's a million & 1 different types of tickets you can buy for grandstands & seat areas

Can anyone who has been previous shed some light on best places to view the event from?

It all depends on what you can afford. Tickets for last year started at about 150.Brazilian reais and got up to 1000.Brazilian reais. Just like a ticket to a Super Bowl or a World Cup. You get what you can afford.

Hey G,
There are lots of types of different seats and prices (between R$150.00 and R$300.00) for the official parade at the “Sambodromo”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambadrome
But the real party happens on the streets and they are free. Look for BLOCOS, street parades http://www.samba-choro.com.br/carnaval/2008 ,
Also don’t miss the Samba rehearsals before the official parade at the Samba Schools communities.
Cheers,
Bruno.
