San Siro Stadium Tour

Soccer or football is the Italian national pastime, as baseball in US. Every kid is able to kick a ball as it should be, trying to emulate super stars of SerieA.
If you are a huge sport fan, not necessarily a soccer fan, and you are planning a Tour in Italy you can’t miss a Tour of  Italian soccer’s Cathedral: San Siro Stadium in Milan.
San Siro is the home of A.C. Milan and Inter Milan. Here they play their home games. The greatest players ran on this field during memorable matches.
This stadium has seen lots of successes and trophies, and millions and millions of fans have been moved to tears after a great win or an awful loss.

Its structure is breathtaking and it has come through considerable changes to reach the splendor you see today. 
It has been inaugurated  in 1926 and strongly modernized twice. The first time in 1955, while  the second time just before Italian FIFA World Cup in 1990. Its real name is “Stadio Giuseppe Meazza “ in honor of a great Italian champion, winner of  two World Cup in 1934 and in 1938.
It’s one of the best stadium of all Europe together with Camp Nou of Barcelona and Old Trafford located in Manchester. It has a great capacity, more than 85.000 seats. If compared with other similar Stadiums of Italy it’s certainly the best of all.   

An absolute must is the guided tour of the Stadium. It is a very remarkable experience. Once inside the Stadium don’t miss the magnificent Museum of AC Milan and Inter, the first Italian Museum ever built inside a Stadium. You’ll walk through the history of the two home teams, the classic jerseys and dozens of cups and trophies won in more than a century of great successes, plus hundreds of memorabilia.
