The San Paolo is the third largest stadium in Italy in terms of capacity. Located in Naples, it is the home of the Italian soccer club SSC Napoli. Today, Neapolitan fans can only count on 60,240 seats in the arena, due to the closure of the third stand. This is certainly not few places, but never enough to contain the exuberance of the blue supporters.

During the history of the city of Naples, they voted to rename the Stadio San Paolo to 'Stadio Maradona' to honor the legendary Argentinean player who became a symbol of the team and the city. Unfortunately, an Italian law repelled this action: a public building can not have the name of a person unless he has been dead for more than ten years.

  • Under 14: 8 euro
