I’m not the biggest football fan in the world, but one can’t go to Madrid and not visit the Real Madrid Stadium. I think my going surprised some people, as I got a few quizzical looks and ‘I didn’t know you were a soccer fan’ questions.
The tour is obviously amazing and makes one leave believing Real Madrid is the best team in the world. Well, of course it is 🙂
The tour includes a panaromic view of the stadium, pitch, dressing and press room. The highlight however, is the trophy room, an in your face assault to the senses. There are dozens of television screens, ceiling to floor screens, glass cases filled with historical documents and trophies, information on each player, and at the end a fabulous video interviewing some players on their feelings to play for Real Madrid.
It’s worth noting that the tour isn’t suited to those in wheelchairs, as there’s stairs to climb up and no wheelchair facilities.
I took out photos of everything, to share with those more deserving than I in terms of love of the game, to have a glimpse of their beloved team.
