San Siro Stadium, AC Milan’s gigantic football grounds and the largest in Italy
AC Milan plays all its home games in the temple of San Siro. However, this huge stadium is in fact shared with archival, Inter. The recent renovations mean the stadium currently has a capacity of 80,018 spectators.
If you go and attend an FC Milan match, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the many loyal Italian football fans congregating to worship their heroes; giving it its unique character. Booking a football trip to AC Milan is an experience included on many football fanatics’ bucket list!
How to get to the San Siro Stadium?
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”.
By TRAM to San Siro Stadium
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.
San Siro Stadium plan
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:
- Green: Curva (North) behind the North Goal. Sectors 137 to 148, 239 to 254 and 343 to 360.
- Blue: Curva (South) behind the South Goal. Sectors 101 to 112, 201 to 220 and 301 to 318.

Stadium tour + museum around San Siro Stadium
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.
Snacks and drinks close to San Siro Stadium
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.
Ristorante & Pizzeria La Barchetta
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.
Offside Sports Pub
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.
Information about AC Milan
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.
AC Milan logo
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.
AC Milan’s nickname: Rossoneri
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.
What to do in Milan?
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.
Duomo di Milano
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.
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
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.
Santa Maria delle Grazie
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.
Teatro alla Scale
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.
This was a brilliant trip all organised perfectly by Football Breaks to experience the culture of Milan along with a memorable visit to the San Siro with an incredible atmosphere. We were emailed all of the details and tickets a week in advance which all sorted perfectly. Both flights were easy and travel around Milan the same. The trip lasted the perfect time allowing us to fully explore and experience the culture of Milan. The El Duomo and Starbucks along with all the shops are key areas to go. However onto the key part of this trip- the AC Milan vs Cagliari match on the Sunday night. We arrived at the San Siro 3 hours before kick off to fully experience everything and take in the massive stadium. The match went brilliant with a 3-0 but the atmosphere was excellent with the Milan Ultras in the Curva Sud non stop chanting and waving flags. Overall the trip was so easy for us as Football Breaks had organised everything for us with ease and from the hotel, transport and the match it was all perfect. Will definitely be looking for more matches.
tip: For Milan games always bring ID to the game along with your ticket otherwise entry will not be allowed. Attend in plenty of time of the game. Visit the Starbucks and shops for certain.
AC Milan - Cagliari Calcio

This was my first trip abroad in 17 years so had been a little apprehensive but the organisation (accommodation, flights, match tickets) was excellent. Unfortunately we were a little let down by Easyjet but getting around Milan once we got there was so easy. The Metro is excellent! As for the San Siro, what a magical place to watch football! Great seats, fantastic armosphere and a 5 goal thriller! Just watch out outside the stadium for Aftricans touting wristbands - we certainly were ripped off! We also had time in the city around Duomo and it is all pretty spectacular. So in spite of Easyjet and the weather, my son Jamie and I had a really good time. Watching football at the San Siro is really amazing, so glad we made the trip.
Tip: Metro is so easy to use and such good value. As i said though just be careful to look out for a few dodgy peddlers around the stadium.

was very happy with the service and customer service and will be returning again next year to book a few more trips with my partner coming with me.
AC Milan - Benevento Calcio
21 April 2018
Everything went like clockwork. We especially liked the idea of printing off our match tickets, as it took away the element of when are our tickets going to arrive at the hotel. E-Mail communications were excellent throughout, particularly changes to match kick-off time. Milan is a vibrant city, easy to get around by tram and metro.
Tip: Purchase a day ticket for the tram / metro / bus. Only costs €4.50 Used it to get from the hotel into Milan City Centre and also to the San Siro. Limited time for sightseeing, take the Hop-On/Hop-Off Open Top Bus from near Milan Cathedral. 1 ticket covers all 3 routes.
AC Milan - SSC Napoli

I have used Football Breaks a few times in the past few years and have always had a great experience. They were top again with everything as the game got moved only a few days before kick off and the tickets were going to be delivered to the hotel but in the end they sent us e tickets. Any query i had they responded to straight away! The Hotel was a 4 star we picked which was very good.
The game was a great 0-0 with chances for both sides and a last minute from Donnarumma which was awesome to see live and the fans reaction. At the end Donnarumma chucked his shirt and shorts in crowd. The atmosphere was absolutely amazing and so loud as we was in the Ultras section one of the best and passionate about. I had been to the San Siro before a while back for the tour but to actually watch a game was so good vs a great team in Napoli. We made the experience better to feel part of it by buying a AC Milan shirt and scarf to fit right in. Forza Milan!
Football Breaks yet again deliver each time for a Football weekend abroad without any hassle!"

Brilliant trip. Correspondence with Football Break prior to, the information they gave us, the price and atmosphere at the San Siro were all absolutely spot on. Would highly recommend.
Tip: Get to the stadium early and spend time having a couple of beers outside and taking in the atmosphere with the locals.
AC Milan - Chievo Verona
18 March 2018
Booking with Football Breaks for the first time I was obviously concerned. I hadn’t heard of them previously but the deals on the website were easy to negotiate and so decided to give it a go. Right from the booking, everything went very smoothly! Payments were taken in two instalments and information was sent out around 2 weeks before the departure. Everything was booked and very easy. Flights were smooth, transfer from Milan Airport was simple via train and underground however there was a shuttle bus available which we used on our return. There was very little around the area, so you did need to go searching for a pub and food. The hotel was basic but certainly served our needs and the reception were always very helpful with directions and modes of transport. The atmosphere at the San Siro was excellent and our seats couldn’t have been any better on the half way line 2nd Tier 3rd row! There are plenty of food options and merchandise stalls around the ground. There are also plenty of things to do in the city. I recommend a trip to the canals in the evening where there are plenty of places to eat and drink and sightseeing at the Duomo! All in all, a superb trip, excellent value for money and we will 100% be booking with Football Breaks again for next seasons adventure..
Tip: There is not a lot around the ground for before kick off! So don’t get there too early. Culture is very different to British games. If possible, take in a Stadium your and a trip to the Milan Museum
