Spain: FC Barcelona's Camp Nou

Since we were in Barcelona, I made sure to visit Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona. Completed in 1957, this UEFA 5-star rated stadium is the largest in Europe with its capacity of 98,772 people.

In Camp Nou, one can find the FCBotiga Megastore where you can find tons of FC Barcelona paraphernalia and items. If you're a big football fan, make sure to get tickets for the Camp Nou Tour and Museum which cost 13€.

The Barcelona Bus Turistic conveniently stops in front of the stadium. While the Collblanc (L5) and Palu Reial (L3) Metro stations are 8 minutes away.

    Woooooow! It's a dream of mine to be able to go to a live football game. Well next to being able to watch a live F1 race, hehe.

  2. Yeah, we missed watching a football game due to schedule. We were close to watching one in Valencia but tickets were sold out. And scalper tickets were just too expensive!

  3. I really enjoyed visiting Camp Nou for a match with Sevilla. As allways Barca won :) If you ever get to Canary Islands, make sure to visit Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. I had a blast there.
