Expert review of San Siro Stadium

Walk with football legends at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and the Inter/AC Milan Museum.

There are few football stadia in the world that can boast two giant clubs, but AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano (Inter) live side by side at San Siro, the oldest stadium in Italy and one of the most famous in the world. AC Milan began in 1899 and plays in red and black. Inter was founded in 1908 and plays in black and white. The stadium was inaugurated on 19 Sept 1926 with a game between the two clubs (Inter won 6-3) and is officially known as the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. It’s been renovated twice, in 1955 and 1990, and now seats 85,700.

The museum houses a variety of memorabilia and trophies charting the history of the stadium, the clubs and the players over the extraordinary history of this footballing legend. The movie room shows old games, the boot room shows the development of the boot and there’s even table football and life-sized models of famous footballers.

Price advice: 

Entrance to the museum and stadium costs 12.50 euros, 10 euros concessions or seven euros (five euros conc) for the museum only.

Expert tips: 
While you are in the area you may also want to drop by the San Siro Racecourse (27 via Ippodrome) to see the world's largest equestrian statue. The giant bronze was commissioned in 1482 from Leonardo da Vinci but never made. Sculptor Nina Akamo and American pilot Charles Dent finally got round to it in 1977.
