A brilliant trip! Very well organised from start to finish. Hotel Catalonia Aragon is a bit away from the main sights of Barcelona but 10 minutes on the Metro and we were in the heart. An excellent two days just wandering the city, seeing thec sights, drinking coffee and eating tapas. For the match itself we went for the second level of ticket pricing and had superb seats - behind (and some way above!) the goal but at the very front of our particular tier. Atmospere superb despite 'only' 83000 attendance. Thoroughly recommend the whole package.
I recently travelled to Barcelona with my fourteen year old son. I contacted FootballBreak.co.uk who were extremely helpful and informative throughout. We chose a simple but very pleasant hotel which was walking distance from the stadium. Walking back, after the game, the atmosphere around town was wonderful. We had not only just seen Barcelona win, but Lionel Messi score a goal right below us! My son said he will never forget that moment! All the sights in Barcelona, including the street entertainers in the famous Les Ramblas, made this a most memorable experience for us bot.
If opting to stay in a hotel away from the centre of Barcelona, take the option of booking transfers from the airport. Staying in a hotel that is walking distance from the stadium means you do not have to find transport back to your hotel after the game!
I purchased this package as a 16th Birthday present surprise for my son. The party included myself, my son, my Brother and Brother in law. The whole package included flights, hotel and match tickets. The ease of booking was excellent as was the service received from the Football Break representative when I called to check a few details. On arrival in Barcelona we caught the train into the City this was so easy and very reasonably priced. On locating our Hotel we booked in and the receptionist handed over our Match tickets. With a few hours to pass before the match we explored Barcelona everything was within walking distance. The hotel receptionist advised us how best to get to the Stadium and this was to get the metro from a tube station around the corner and the station to depart from for the stadium. Again this was so easy and only cost 2 euros PP. The stadium and the match were superb and despite there being over 90.000 people there we never witnessed any hassle or trouble from either sets of fans. The package meant that we were in Barcelona for 2 nights giving us 3 full days to spend in and around the City. For anyone thinking of visiting Barcelona I can fully recommend this beautiful City and the ease of moving around and seeing the sights. We all enjoyed it so much we are all looking forward to going again next year! Oh by the way the Match was Barcelona v Bilbao 2-0 to Barca.
Get your bearings and buy a street map, locate the stadium. Use the metro for transporting around the city and to the Stadium (so easy and cheap) Get to the stadium early to locate your seats and soak up the brilliant atmosphere. If there for more than 1 night consider the stadium tour well worth it! If its raining take waterproofs a lot of the seating is uncovered. Take a camera. Keep valuables secure. Don't worry if seats are in a high tier the view is excellent.
We had a fabulous trip to Barcelona and Camp Nou. We booked for 4 people our seats were 2 then 2 behind so we were beside each other, We were on the last tier so not for the faint headed but the atmosphere was amazing and so was the view surprisingly. Definetely would go back - Barcelona is fabulous and definetly worth a visit. Booking this package was so easy you didn't have to go shopping around and I felt it was reasonably priced. I contacted Football break a couple of time where the staff where extremely helpful and friendly. A fantastic weekend one we hope to repeat!
Check out the Metro it is so cheap and easy to use! A 10 trip ticket was approx 9 euros and this can be used for the whole the party. We bought 1 it took us all to the stadium and back with 2 to spare - great value!
The package was great - no problems. Everything went smoothly. The airline, hotel and Atletico staff all knew what to do as soon as we showed them the vouchers that we'd been supplied with. The seats were great, as was the atmosphere at the stadium.
