The Stadio Meazza, more famously known as the San Siro Stadium, Milan, is one of the world’s greatest football stadia. The San Siro is home to two of Europe’s leading football clubs, Internazionale and AC Milan.
Even if you’re unlucky enough to be in Milan when there are no matches, a pilgrimage to the San Siro is still a worthwhile addition to the football fan’s city break.
The San Siro Museum is dedicated to both Inter Milan and AC Milan, and is located inside the stadium (Gate 21). The museum is open daily from 10am, with the last admission at 5pm. Tours depart hourly (with variations on matchdays).
San Siro Stadium Transport
First method: Take the Metro to Lotto station. From there it is a fair walk, although there should be plenty of other fans heading in the same direction. Go past McDonalds (on your left), and take Via Caprillo, following the line of trees along the edge of the Ippodromo. This route takes you to the Curva Nord, the northern end of the stadium.
Second method: Tram number 16 has its terminus right outside the Curva Sud, opposite the entrance to the San Siro Museum. The tram (which follows part of the route of the old 24) runs from central Milan. Stops include Missori (Metro 3), Via Mazzini (near the Duomo) and Corso Magenta. Look for Direzione (direction) S. Siro / Axum.
