The Milan football stadium can seat over 85,000 spectators and is home to both AC Milan and Inter Milan. Remarkable, because they are arch-enemies. The stadium is officially named after Giuseppe Meazza, a football player from the thirties. Meazza achieved its biggest successes at Inter and AC Milan supporters don't know what you're talking about when you ask about the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The stadium is popularly called San Siro. The oldest part dates from 1926 and since then it has gradually been built into the enormous colossus it is today. For the European Championship of 1990 the last ring and the roof were added. By the way, that was not good for the grass, because it didn't get any sunlight anymore and it didn't get enough fresh air either.
As with many other large football stadiums, guided tours are organised by San Siro. You can see the dressing rooms, the VIP area, the player's tunnel and of course you can enter the field. Each tour ends with a visit to the museum, which is a must-see. There are life-size dolls from the biggest stars who played here, including the Dutch trio Rijkaard, Gullit and Van Basten. You can also visit only this museum without a guided tour.
On the day of the match, sometimes tickets are still for sale, usually only for the upper ring. You may be very far from the pitch, but watching a game in this stadium is an experience in itself. For football fans, the San Siro Stadium is one of the must-see sights in Milan.
