“Terrible!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

On Saturday, 19th June I took my family and friends to the Modà concert at San Siro.
Firstly, let me say that the concert itself was FANTASTIC and Modà gave 100%, making the evening memorable.

However, and it's a big however, the venue left a lot to be desired!
Let me begin by saying that this was my third visit to San Siro - I had previously taken friends and children to do the stadium tour (interesting) and had already noticed on those occasions that the public facilities (loos) were substandard to say the least.
This time I can only say I was shocked as follows:

- nowhere was it possible to find information (in any language) as to what was and wasn't
allowed to be taken into the stadium - could we take water, food etc?!!!! Who knows?

- litter and empty bottles were on the floor everywhere outside the stadium - there seemed to
be very few litter bins around - perhaps there was airport-style security and you couldn't
take more that 100ml of liquid - again, who knows?

- we passed through an automatic turnstyle with our tickets and never saw or spoke to a
member of security! We were never searched or asked what we had on us. We could have
taken absolutely anything into that stadium! True, there were mostly families etc but that's
not the point. Security just didn't seem to exist - we were horrified!

-we soon noticed that some people had brought complete picnics and loads of botlles of drink
and wished we had risked bringing more water with us instead of the minimum, fearing it might
have been confiscated on entry to the stadium. We later had to buy extra bottles of water
there at high prices due to the heat and humidity of the evening.

- pray that you never have to use the loos when you are there, or if you do, arm yourself with
loo roll, soap, paper tissues and, above all, a peg for your nose as the stench was
overpowering! They were absolutely disgusting and could be smelt from the nearby bar
Oh yes, and a torch would be useful too as most of the time they were in total darkness..
We tried them in two different areas and to rate them as third-world would be a kindness
they just don't deserve! I have travelled around the world for work and leisure, have lived in
Italy for over twenty-five years and can only say, San Siro, vergognati and get your act
together - you can do much, much better than this. I was truly horrified and can only thank
Modà and their music for making the evening a success. I may add that there were four of us
in our immediate group and we all witnessed the same things.

“could be better”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I paid 16 euro for the tour and the museum. The museum was fairly small considering the history of both clubs. The tour occurred after the trip to the museum. We were shown where the players speak with the media, the dressing rooms and we went to the side of the pitch too. It is a nice stadium but the price is not worth it. It could be a lot better

“Liked more...”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

My partner and i visited and paid ?32 euro for the tour and museum. Really great experience, however the 'tour' was not guided. People who had paid to get in were literally left to wander. It would have been lovely to be guided around and told the ins and outs of such a massive stadium. All we got to see was the dressing rooms and staduim area. The museum was pretty much how other reviews have described, muddled and staff spent more time on their phones than supporting the history of the San Siro!!!

“Disappointing and not real value for money”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The stadium tour and museum were not good value for money but it was one of those "must do" things to do whilst we were in Milano. British stadiums have now overtaken it (probably Brazilian ones too) and the museum was something that was muddled, poorly displayed and the explained exhibits not well laid out. The museum looked like it was only there in the close season and it just didn't tell the story the way I had expected. You only get to see one side of the stadium and the changing rooms (which are pretty hopeless for today's standards). Even Chelsea's stadium is better and that is saying something from an Arsenal fan!

“San siro tour”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Fantastic tour. Saw design rooms press area musuem and saw tunnel to pitch and to stands. A tad expensive but this is worth as a great experience. There was a gift shop and a small musuem included with historic information. If you love ac milan please visit casa milan which isn't too far away. A must see for true supporters with lots of trophies and interactive technology. Not cheap but
A must see if you are in milan.
