As a first time sole traveller, I was slightly nervous about the whole experience, but my trip was seamless without any issues. The FootballBreak team were contactable and reassuring when I had queries before travelling and were fairly thorough in preventing any issues that could possibly arise as a result of flying with my medical equipment. The hotel was pretty basic but did a sufficient job for my 2 night stay. The best and most satisfying part of my package was of course the match and my seat, which was category 2 but perfectly located centrally behind the north goal with a fantastic view. The atmosphere felt incredible in Europe's largest stadium (Camp Nou), and I can safely say it was a truly memorable experience and I achieved my long held dream to see Leo Messi play live - it was a masterclass performance by him, and with 2 goals and 2 assists, he pretty much won the match on his own so it could not have got much better.
Everyone went very smoothly, tickets and any other documentation were delivered promptly a week in advance. Any questions I had before the trip were responded to very quickly through email. Madrid was a great city with plenty to do. Although the Wanda stadium was around half an hour out of Madrid, it was quick and easy to get a taxi. Drinks aren't overpriced and there are restaurants everywhere you look!
tip: Take a taxi to the Wanda stadium as opposed to the subway, as the subway confused us! (Although that might just have been us)
Another excellent trip , every aspect was perfect, Madrid a vibrant and exciting city. The atmosphere at the match was amazing!
Metro is the best option for travelling to the stadium. Not much in way of food around the stadium.
This was our third trip with Football Break and once again they didn’t disappoint. We decided to take in a midweek Champions League match and it was well worth the trip. The hotel was pretty basic but we knew that before we went. We could have upgraded the hotel but when you’re only sleeping there, there didn’t seem much point. The location was central in Madrid and there were plenty of shops, restaurants and bars near to us. The match itself was unbelievable! The atmosphere before the game was electric and it carried on for the full 90 minutes. The Atleti fans never stop singing and the new stadium is something to behold. It’s a bit out the way from the centre of Madrid, but it’s a fantastic stadium with all the mod cons. Overall, another great trip away, we have another one planned for March, this time Barcelona and I’m sure it’ll be just as great as this trip was.
tip: The Wanda is quite a way out of the city centre of Madrid but we used the subway to get there. Cheap and very easy to use. And after the game, have a browse in the stadium shop for maybe 20 minutes which lets the crowd die down getting back out.
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.
