Europe Trip - Meanwhile in San Siro Stadio

While the girls opted to shop, they chose to visit the stadium which is the home to Inter Milan and AC Milan: San Siro. The formal name of this stadium is Stadio Giussepe Meazza, which is a tribute to an Italian footballer winning world cup in 1934 and 1938.

Other than for football match, the stadium is used for concerts and other sporting events.

How to go to San Siro Stadio? Easy. From Centrale Station, take the green line for 2 stops to Garibaldi FS Station, change to the purple line, and stop at the end of the line at San Siro Station. You can either buy one-way ticket of EUR 1.5 (~SGD 2.5) or 1-day metro pass of EUR 4.5 (~SGD 7.5). Of course it will be more economical to buy the pass when you are planning to use the metro for more than 3 times.

San Siro Stadio was originally the ground of AC Milan. It was initiated by the president of AC Milan, Piero Pirelli. The construction started in 1925 and the stadium was inaugurated on 19 September1926 by the defeat of AC Milan to Inter Milan, 3-6. Since 1947, Inter Milan became the tenant here and they were sharing the ground ever since.

As of now, the stadium is a UEFA Category 4 stadium that has hosted 6 FIFA World Cup and 3 European Cup Finals. It will host UEFA Champion League Final 2016.

The stadium is now serving as a museum and open to public on the days with no activities or events. The ticket cost EUR 17 (~SGD 26) per person.

I believe this is one of the dreams of football fans. Congratulation!

Love is in the air,
