This was taken from the 2nd ring of the red section in stadium San Siro in Milan during last weeks game AC Milan - Palermo. Click the link at the bottom for the exact location.
When in Milan during a weekend, you have a great chance of seeing a match in this stadium. Both big clubs, AC Milan and Internazionale Milan, play in the same stadium. When one team plays at home, the other plays outside of the city. Tickets can be bought on the clubs website or at the stadium. Why not try to catch a game of the world's finest footbal?
Throughout the week, you can do a stadium & museum tour. Part of the tour is a visit to the dressing rooms of both teams. Please see the workshop photo for Milan's dressing room.
I'm a Milan fan and really wanted to see this years team. Although they didn't win anything this season, in my opinion this is one of the best teams ever. Years ago, in the Weah era, I thought that was one of the best teams too but I never got to see George Weah play live in the Milan shirt. I didn't want te let this happen this year. I've seen them all: Kaka, Seedorf, Pirlo, Beckham, Sheva, Ronaldinho, Maldini, Zambrota and of course Filippo 'The Hitman' Inzaghi. The last one scored a header; two penalties by Kaka. Best player was Ambrosini.

nice fish-eye shot from San Siro: we call it "la Scala del Calcio"
(Theather "La Scala" in Milan is one of the top theaters for Operas....)
I think you saw a nice interesting game...my father was there too

Hi Gilbert, I love this photo of the San Siro. Wasn't this the venue of World Cup Final with legendary Maldini and the great Baresi? I dont see any smoke here among the crowd. I once liked Milan with the dutch trio, would love to see a match there against Barca, my new favorite Club since 1995 :> ....Rgds, Alex
