A really good trip all in all. Easy to book, and all the emailed instructions from footballbreak were easy to follow. The match itself was really good (2-2), with an excellent atmosphere - the ultras and tifosi from both teams putting on a good show aswell.
tip: Took a little longer than I thought it would to get through security/ticket checks to get into the stadio olimpico, so leave a bit more time than you think, but would thoroughly recommend a visit to see a game.
Start to finish the trip was fully planned by football breaks I literally had to just check in and enjoy
tip: Have a city map there’s a lot to see
We decided to book a surprise 21st Birthday present for my son Craig. Having looked at the options we booked the whole weekend package through Football Break. Flights, hotel, Camp Nou tour and football tickets. All the paperwork and information arrived a couple of weeks before the trip. Everything was easy to understand and the weekend arrived and everything went smoothly. We had a great tour of the Camp Nou on the Saturday, a fantastic evening in Barcelona and leisurely Sunday with the game at the Camp Nou Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was something special and our seats were amazing. My son Craig said it was something he had dreamed of since a little boy. Watching Messi score 2 goals was the icing on the cake. We walked back to our hotel via a lovely Tapas bar Monday we had a leisurely wander around central Barcelona before our flights home. It was the perfect weekend one we will never forget. Thank you so much!
Get the train from the airport to central Barcelona we stayed next to Sants Train station the trip was simple one Train Three stops 4.30 euros each.
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.
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.
