AC Milan’s temple of football is located in the west of the city in the San Siro district, around six kilometres from the centre. Milan’s public transport is efficient, and is generally a well-integrated system. In this city, you’re easily able to explore your surroundings without much trouble. Various buses, taxis, metros and trams stop at the stadium.
San Siro is a stadium that’s easy to reach by car, although getting there by taxi is more economical. This is because of the paid parking at the stadium.
If you’re still determined to go by car (leased or otherwise), we recommend purchasing a car park ticket in advance. These can be bought at the Casa Milan ticket office, open daily from 10:00 to 20:00. You can reach the office at Via Aldo Rossi, 8, Piazza Gino Valle side.
Although it can get highly congested around the stadium on AC Milan match days, parking is extremely easy if you’ve bought your car park ticket beforehand.
The car park itself can be reached from Autostrada A4 – exit “Viale Certosa“. You can also reach the car park from Tangenziale Ovest – exit “Milano San Siro”.
Milan has one tram line that will take you to the San Siro Stadium.
Line 16, orange line from Monte Velino (Via del Turchino 13 Prima di Via Maspero).
With line 16, you can get off at various stops in the city. This is the line running from Monte Velino. Around 4.5 kilometres from the centre of Milan.
There are around 32 stops from the point of departure to the stop closest to the stadium. The stop where you’ll have to get off is called Rospigliosi Prima di Piazza Axum.
From here, the San Siro Stadium can be reached on foot in under a minute.

You can also take tram line 16 back to the centre at night, although we recommend taking the night bus, since the night bus timetable is somewhat easier to understand.
To give you an idea of which tickets you should purchase for the best seats in the San Siro Stadium for your football trip: AC Milan’s stadium is subdivided into four stands and three different levels. A skybox and a lounge are also provided at the first level. The sectors in the 100 series and the A-Z series are those closest to the pitch. Bear in mind that the away supporters sit in the blue section – Curva South in sectors 301 to 318.
The sides in San Siro Stadium are:
No football trip to AC Milan is in fact complete without booking a tour of the stadium. During the “San Siro Experience”, you’re taken on a tour through this club’s history. Private tours can be booked, although this has to be by reservation. A whole range of languages are available for this tour, such as Italian, English, French, German, Portuguese, Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Russian.
You follow a predetermined route along which you can check out features: the Inter and AC Milan museum, hospitality rooms, the players’ changing rooms, the exclusive Mixed Zone and the pitch where you’ll walk through the impressive players’ tunnel. The San Siro Stadium takes around 30 to 40 minutes, and for the museum you should factor in around a further 50 minutes.
Please note: No tours, or only very few, are organised during match days. We therefore recommend doing the tour on a day other than match days. However, the museum is open seven days a week from 9:30 in the morning until 17:00 in the afternoon.
The price of a normal tour is €20. A reduced rate of €13 applies to children under the age of 13. Younger children (under 6) can enter free of charge.
Before attending an AC Milan match, it’s nice to go for a bite to eat and a drink in the San Siro Stadium area.
There are fortunately plenty of amazing stalls forming a ring around the stadium. Some of these offer a whole range of different beers, and there are also stalls providing the classic hamburger. You’ll also find hotdogs and typical Italian paninis.
Slightly further away from the stadium – around a five-minute walk – you’ll also easily find local restaurants in the surrounding streets. A classic among AC Milan supporters is Ristorante La Barchetta.
If it’s a football bar you’re looking for, make your way to the Offside Sports Pub, found in Milan’s centre.
Not to be missed during your stay in Milan! Here you’ll enjoy wonderful Italian food. Whether it’s a classic pasta bolognese or a quattro stagioni pizza: you’ve come to the right place here. The many reviews reveal that the service is quick and outstanding, with friendly staff who are happy to help and with big smiles. AC Milan’s stadium is only five minutes away from this restaurant: making it ideal. This place really gets you in the mood before your AC Milan match kicks off.
The restaurant opens its doors every day at 12:00 midday, closing at 14:30 in the afternoon. During the evening, the restaurant opens again at 19:00, up until 23:00.
A small pub where you can also watch football. They speak excellent English here, and visitors with a lower level of the language can also get by. The atmosphere here is relaxed, but bear in mind that a football pub such as this can get overcrowded at certain times. Nevertheless, there’s a wide selection of beers here, and there are screens everywhere in the rooms where you can watch football.
During the COVID-19, this pub is open every Wednesday and Friday, from 18:00 in the evening until 2:00 in the morning.
AC Milan was founded on 16 December 1899 by Herbert Kilpin, an English professional footballer. He also came up with the world-famous slogan about the ‘team of devils’, and that’s certainly the case, because AC Milan became Italy’s national champions for the first time on 5 May 1901. That’s barely two years after the club was founded!
AC Milan is a truly legendary top club. They’re so legendary that they’d even had the most international titles of all clubs in the world from December 2007 to February 2014.
This was the club where legendary Dutch top player Marco van Basten became world famous, and clinched his Ballon d’Or. To this day, he still remains one of the most outstanding players AC Milan has ever had.
In short: if you want to enjoy a football match at one of the most successful Italian clubs of all time, AC Milan is the perfect choice. The highest level of football, guaranteed.
The AC Milan logo as we now know it has been in use since 1998, and hasn’t changed since then. This logo represents the club’s essence: the characteristic red colours, standing for fire, and black colours symbolising the opponent’s fear.
There are black and red stripes on the left. On the right you see a red cross on a white background, which is the city of Milan’s coat of arms. For decades, AC Milan’s logo was just this coat of arms, but that was eventually changed.
The most well-known nickname the AC Milan team has is “I Rossoneri”, which means “the red-blacks” The reason for this is simply because the logo and the shorts have these colours.
Milan is a metropolis, and what’s more the world’s design and fashion capital. Ticking every box for a football trip, but also fantastic for a city break or long weekend. The charming parks, typical Italian narrow streets, the many shops with luxury fashion brands, and the icing on the cake: the authentic Italian food that Italians are so proud of. That means if you’re visiting the city for an AC Milan match, there’s plenty of things to do for the rest of your stay. These are our favourite hangouts in Milan.
The Duomo cathedral is the city of Milan’s classic icon. Its construction took around five centuries. What’s more, the Duomo is easy for tourists to access, making this attraction something certainly not to be missed when visiting Milan.
Please note: Bear in mind that entry to the cathedral will be denied if you’re wearing shorts, a short skirt or clothing revealing the arms. Bags are also checked.
This world-famous shopping arcade, designed by Guiseppe Mengoni, is unique, and one of the most elegant places in Milan. Brimming with luxury stores and stylish cafés, this is an ideal spot for both tourists and locals to have a traditional Italian coffee.
Another must-see in Milan is the world-renowned mural painted by none other than Leonardo Da Vinci. This is local to the world famous and UNESCO-accredited Santa Maria delle Grazie museum.
Fun fact: the mural was created from 1495, and completed in 1498. Since then, the city of Milan has done its utmost to maintain the mural in a splendid condition.
For lovers of classical music: behold La Scala. This opera house is considered the most prestigious in all the world. For centuries now, this building has presented the music of the greatest opera composers, such as Arturo Toscanini and Antonio Votto.
The opera season starts around early December, and runs until May. However, tickets aren’t easy to get hold of. We therefore recommend contacting your hotel well in advance, so they can arrange the tickets.
Went to watch AC Milan v Lazio and it was one of the best experiences of my life ( obviously a mad football fan) the atmosphere in the San Siro was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend to anybody to go and see for yourself. Thank you to Football Break for getting us such fantastic seats too, we’ll be using you again next year when we go somewhere different. 10 out of 10 trip 👍🏻🍺🍕⚽️🇮🇹🔴⚫️
We booked a trip to Milan for AC Milan v Lazio with Football Breaks and I can honestly say that the entire trip was completely flawless! The flights were fine, nice and simple. Hotel was great city centre location with friendly staff and included breakfast! Match tickets were sent through by email link 48hrs in advance meaning that we had plenty of time to print them off at home before we travelled! And as for the seats themselves, they were superb! We could not have asked for better seats opposite the famous Curva Sud and with great lines to the pitch. It was an experience that both myself and my son won’t ever forget! But I think the best compliment for the entire trip was that everything was completely flawless! Even though the match date was changed very late to accommodate the Champions League semi-final m, everything was in order and a mail was sent out immediately to say that all match tickets were still fine. We will definitely look to book another trip next season with Football Breaks as we completely loved this one! Thanks guys.
Great trip Package was good San siro was amazing very Loud Easy to book and would Highley recommend cant wait till next year for a different stadium off the bucket list !!
Tip: Be prepared to do alot of walking around
I took my 9 year old son to Milan to watch AC Milan V Atalanta. We received all the information and tickets in plenty of time before leaving and the communication was top class from football breaks. The match ticket was much better than expected and we had a great view. We attend a lot of football matches in the uk but the atmosphere in the San Siro was unrivalled. Would certainly recommend arriving at the stadium early to soak up the pre match atmosphere. The City was extremely busy due to it being Milan fashion week but we found the locals really friendly and its a great city to visit. The hotel was basic but we expected that and was easy to get to the stadium on the underground from a nearby stop. The service from football breaks was brilliant and stress free.
Tip: We travelled on the underground mainly which once you got your bearings was easy to use and was only 13 euros for 3 days travel.
Seen the advert on Facebook a few times and often joked/commented on how we need to do this. Turns out we actually did it. Pretty much a last minute decision but absolutely easy to plan, sort and do. No hassles whatsoever. We went to AC Milan v Torino Cup game. Stadium about half full but still generated a lot of noise. Great selection of food and drinks outside with plenty of bars and roving drink vendors inside. Nice to sit and watch a game with a beer . Only downside was that we'd have liked to purchase a programme but didn't see any on sale (and not sure if they even were!).
Tip: Due to late nature of the game finishing, the metro's had stopped running. Don't try and walk it as we did as your phone will probably die in the middle of nowhere. Stand and wait for a taxi.
Milan is a vibrant city with lots to see!
Tip: Don’t just use the Metro. You will see lots more walking!
Atmosphere was electric an hour before kick off and carried on to final whistle. Our 3rd trip and best yet!
Tip: Milan metro very easy to use.
Thank you so much for our weekend away in Milan to see AC Milan v Atalanta, what an atmosphere, good seats, and a good hotel (the best western).
We’re already looking into which club is next, and a few of our other mates are jealous so they’ll be more of us!!!
I would definitely recommend this trip. Milan is an iconic stadium with great atmosphere and the food stalls around the ground have a lovely food.
Tip: We also went to turin to see juventus. It's only an hour on the train.
Overall the whole package provided by football break was amazing. If you want to go on a break to watch football abroad then I would highly recommend football break as they have staff who make your trip a no hassle trip.
Tip: I would highly recommend going early so you can see the coach arrive and enjoy the atmosphere before the game.
