The San Siro stadium is home to both AC Milan and Inter Milan. The stadium opened in 1926 and can accommodate more than 85,000 visitors.
This stadium has often been the scene of extremely exciting games, especially during the derby between the eternal rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan when the stadium often vibrates to its foundations.
The stadium is located in the area of San Siro. This is also how the name used AC Milan. The Inter Milan supporters however have a different name for the famous stadium; they call it the ‘Giuseppe Meazza’, named after a very famous football player from Inter Milan. This also explains the two different names of the two groups of supporters to the stadium.
San Siro or Stadio Guiseppe Meazza (Stadium Tour)
The San Siro Stadium (also known as Stadio Guiseppe Meazza) is named after Saint Siro who had a chapel in this area of Milan. The stadium was built as a gift from Piero Pirelli, an wealthy entrepreneur who was the president of A.C. Milan Football Club from 1909 to 1929. It took just over 13 months to build and cost 5 million lire, about 3.5 million euro today. It was built to hold 35,000 spectators but has since been expanded to hold a capacity of 80,000. The polycarbonate roof was added in 1990 to protect fans and players in bad weather.
San Siro or Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.
The huge stadium is now as much a landmark of Milan as the Scala and the Duomo, each in their own way being sacred ground. Since the year 2000, the stadium has been shared by rivals A.C. Milan and Inter F.C. Milan, so those taking a stadium tour will learn something about both these great teams and their history. As well as football, San Siro Stadium has also hosted championship boxing matches and pop concerts for celebrity artists such as Bob Marley and Bruce Springstein.
Outside the stadium, near the San Siro horseracing track is a huge sculpture of a horse designed by artist Leonardo da Vinci. The stadium tour allows visitors access to all the places they will want to see when there are no events taking place.

Milan in northern Italy may be the centre of fashion and business, but to football fans it is all about A.C. Milan and Inter Milan Football Clubs! This smart city of wealth has been a trading centre on transalpine routes for many centuries. Milan is one of the best places to see Italy at its most stylish and cosmopolitan. The city combines history, architecture and business with shopping, fashion, delicious food and unique attractions. With so much going on in Milan you will certainly never be bored or lonely!
Here are some of the highlights of things to see and do during a football break to Milan:
Milan’s magnificent cathedral, the Duomo, is the third largest in the world. It took four centuries to complete and is 157 metres long and 92 metres wide - that’s about the area of two football pitches! The roof alone has 135 spires and countless statues and gargoyles, whose ugly faces were believed to scare away evil spirits. The Bronze doors are decorated in bas-relief with biblical events and scenes from the history of Milan. The stained glass windows are beautiful and the stone tracery around the windows has the carving of a serpent swallowing a man. This was the family symbol of the Prince Gian Galeazzo Visconti who ordered the building of the Duomo in the 14th century. After viewing the many tombs and statues in the Duomo, visit the Treasury beneath the main altar which has a mass of mediaeval gold and beautiful silver items.
Location: Piazza del Duomo
Metro: MM 1, Piazza Duomo
El Duomo is the icon of the city of Milan.
The original castle was built by the Visconti family, like the Duomo, but it was replaced by this Renaissance palace when Francesco Sforza became the new ruler in the mid-15th century. The palace itself is filled with rooms of furniture, frescoes, antiquities and artworks including a sculpture by Michelangelo.
Location: Piazza Castello
Metro: MM1 Cadorna, Cairoli; MM2 Cadorna, Lanza
Teatro alla Scala
This world-famous opera house was built in 1776 on the site of an old church, the Santa Maria della Scala, built in 1381. Each year the opening of the opera season is celebrated on December 7th, the feast day of Sant’Ambrogio, Milan’s patron saint. Enjoy seeing the sumptuous interior by attending a performance. 200 standing tickets are released 30 minutes before every performance especially for visitors to Milan. Alternatively, visit the Museo del Teatro which has costumes and sets from past performances, sculptures, paintings and theatrical items dating back to Roman times. The museum also gives a wonderful view of the auditorium with its gilt boxes, huge chandelier and trompe l’oeil three-dimensional paintings.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
Even those who detest shopping will be impressed by the architecture of this magnificent shopping arcade. Beneath the 155-foot high domed glass roof there are beautiful bookshops, cafés and restaurants with old fashioned bow-fronted windows and magnificent mosaic floors. The mosaics represent four continents: Europe, America, Africa and Asia along with the signs of the zodiac. Visitors can step on the genitals of Taurus the Bull for good luck! The shopping arcade was built in 1865 and named after the king, Vittorio Emanuele II.
Location: Piazza della Scala
Metro: MM1 Duomo
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the famous gallery that connects Piazza Duomo with Piazza della Scala.
This building was the seat of administration in the 11th century, when most of Europe was still struggling in the Dark Ages. It was rebuilt in the 1330s as the headquarters of the Lords of Milan and later became Milan’s first theatre. The city now uses the building for offices and museums, including the splendid modern art collection in the Civico Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (CIMAC) on the third floor. The Palazzo Reale is also the home of the Museo del Duomo which charts the history of the Duomo from its building in the 14th century to the latest 20th century changes.

Shopping in Milan
Designer apparel and high fashion is synonymous with Milan. Whether you are looking for designer jeans or some excellent pasticcerie (pastries) to take home, you will find them in the city centre. The Fashion Quadrilateral for designer gear is between Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Via Manzoni and Via Sant’Andrea. The areas of Brera and Navigli are filled with antique markets. For gourmet food gifts, visit Peck on Via Spadari 9 which is the equivalent of Harrods in London.

Getting Around Milan
It is easy to get around Milan on foot for those who are young and fit. For longer distances the bus network is good. Buses and their signs are orange and most bus stops are on islands in the centre of the street. Tickets should be purchased from ticket machines, newsstands and tobacconists before getting on the bus. The Metro subway has three lines numbered 1-3, and is the easiest, cheapest and quickest way to get around. It runs from 06.00 to 00.30 and stamped tickets can also be used on other modes of public transport. There are always plenty of taxis in Milan, although they can be expensive.
The tram is an important type of transportation in Milan (Piazza Cordusio here).
Luxury Car Factory Tours in Bologna
If you have time to stay longer, Bologna is about 200km from Milan and is home to several car factories which offer tours and museums. The Ferrari Factory Tour is fascinating but you need to pre-arrange it through a local dealership. Other tours include Italian sports car and motorbike manufacturers Lamborghini, Maserati, Pagani and Ducati.
