While this is up, anyone know if Milan will be selling match tickets online again through bestticket, I used to buy my match tickets through the bestticket website but they haven't had any for sale since the catania incident last year. Does anyone know this a permanent safety precauction or if they will ever put them back on sale online to the public???
Guest

I should be in Naples in September and wouldn't mind atching a game (if Napoli are at home).

Never been to a Serie A game - is it easy/possible for a foreigner to just turn up an hour or so before kick off and get a ticket? (The San Paolo's huge so I should be ok)
Guest

Am looking at going to Roma v Fiorentina in Feb, having never been to a game in Italy before am i best buying my tickets from Listicket? if i do buy from them do i pick the tickets up from the ticket office at the ground?

If there are any Roma fans on here were am i best sitting in the ground, and is it safe to go to a Roma game at the minute with all the trouble they are having?



Thanks
Roma Girl

You can buy Roma Tickets on www.listicket.it however i think you can only but Tevere Centrale and Monte Mario sections (the most expensive).  You would then have to collect them from somewhere near the stadium...i think 3 hours before the game..

Since no one really goes to the stadium any more you can probably buy them when you get here if you have time.  Curva nord (15 Euro) and distini Nord (25 Euro) will have free seats.  You can buy tickets from the Roma Stores.  There is one in the centre of rome.  Im in Distinti Sud which is a good section.  Right next to the Curva and perfectly safe.

Ive not seen any trouble at the stadium in the last year.  Its safe... i go alone nearly everyweek and never have any problems.
Guest

Is there any chance at all of getting a ticket for the Turin derby in 3 weeks? I've got some spare money and flights are dirt cheap so wouldn't mind giving it a go.
Guest

Roma tickets online as mentioned (roma girl) above are never a problem. As you approach the stadium from the bridge veer to the left and there's a small building to the left of the swimming pool steps with 3 windows where you collect your tickets...they tape an a4 sheet with 'Internet' on the window! hi-tech!

Just came back from a lovely weekend in Firenze but alas could not go to the Fiorentina - Milan match. Wrote and emailed many times over the last few months but the club couldn't do anything for me, sadly. I went over with 27 soccer girls and it would have been a great treat for them. Ah well, Mr.Prandelli was in our restaurant afterwards and we exchanged nods on the stairs - he's very gentlemanly!

Re the Turin derby listicket sells the juve tickets and theyre obviously very cheap as nobody goes.

Dunno, but listicket.it is the website, i got a ticket from a tout last season, then with my passport i was able to change the name on the ticket to my own name, by going to the ticket boot behind the Tribuna Est (thanks Adam Smith for the info). Ticket from the tout was 50euro for Tribuna Laterale Est, original price on the ticket was 21euro, that was against Mantova in Serie B though, so they might be more expensive against Torino in Serie A.
The listicket website used to be tempermental, so best to have registered and all that, before the tickets actually go on sale, some days it didn't allow me to register initially.
Game has been switched to Tuesday night at 8:30pm Italian time.

Guest

In Italy for weekend of  Torino v Atalanta and Genoa v Juve and would like to go to one of these games
Will be travelling to one of the games from Milan on the Sunday morning

I'm assumong the game in Genoa will be a sell out but whats the likelihood of tickets (and how to get them) for the Torino game

Many thanks in advance for any help
Guest

Can't help with Turin, but Rome: I stayed just near the Spanish Steps when I was there in a hotel called Hotel King, cheap deal at priceline.co.uk. Quite a good location near a metro stop and easy walking distance to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. Metro to Vatican.
Myles

The Stadio Olympico in Turin is fairly close to the city center. About ten minutes on Tram/bus from the side of the train station.
Hotelurbani.it have reasonable rates, though it's on a dodgy enough street (prostitutes), it's only about 30 second walk from train station and about 5 minutes walk from main street 'via Roma'.

There is information here about the tram etc. (prices etc are from 2007)
Scroll down the page and see the links under the headings:

Guest

Thanks lads...any more from anyone else ??

How about tickets for Torino...easy and on the day ????
Myles

There's a stall in the train station that sells the tram/bus tickets, unless you know Turin they might be hard to find elsewhere. Tickets last for 70 minutes from when you validate them on the tram, be sure to validate, i saw one guy heavy handed when the inspectors got on.
Myles

Got a ticket off a tout behind the curva nord, changed the name on it at a ticket boot behind the Tribuna Est, need passport, had no issues, i assume it's the same for Torino games.

God, i'm so sick of saying this now, ah well.

Rome - hotels -

www.venere.com - have to say I use it for every Italian trip.

Rome - stay around the railway station (ignore reports about it being dangerous unless you're a blue haired old lady and find the odd homeless dude and some pigeons frightening. the #910 bus to the stadium goes from there so its as handy as anywhere else. I've stayed in a few places that were inexpensive but of reasonable quality - the best would be http://www.hotelalpi.com/eng/hotel.html .

Anyway its not a big city so wherever ya stay its just a walk to the metro or bus.

Enjoy
Curva Fiesole

We stayed at the Hotel Urbis in Rome last weekend whilat there for the rugby.  Budget hotel but fine for a short stay, about 100 yards from Roma Termini. Metro line for all the sights and easy to walk to/from the centre.

http://www.venere.com/cgi/hotel/?htid=8426&ref=

Also, there is a great Irish bar in the piazza opposite Santa Maria Maggiore which shows football on screens inside and out (including the Manchester derby highlights on Sunday evening   ) Think it was called Druids Rock.

Cracking name for a hotel.
Guest

yeah theres an irish bar just west of piazza venezia - i popped in the last time i was there and they had 7 different champs league matches on at once. overload!

if u use venere don't book any hotel under an customer 8.0 rating but you should get something decent for 50 a night.
Guest

Thanks to all involved who have given me the benefit of your knowledge...keep it coming ...

General opinion is I'll be ok to get tickets on the day for Torino game (with a passport ?)
Myles

Yeah, with a passport though.
Guest

Every time I return to Turin I stay at the Piemontese Hotel.  Continental breakfast included and about 10-15 minutes from Porta Nuova.  Only 5 minutes away from Murphys Bar!  Oh the memories!      

Hope this helps.

are milan selling tickets online these days? looking to goto the milan derby again this year (may 4th) but dont wanna book flights for nothing!

Tried to buy two tickets to Juventus V Fiorentina on listicket, it accepted everything until the very last part, then it just gave some standard error message

I then checked the juventus website and it says only 1 ticket per customer for this game, so i'm going to have to wait till i get to Italy and try and buy them there...

Info on Romes Ciampino airport...help ....Urgent !!!!

Info please

How big is Rome's Ciampino airport and is it easy to get round ?

How far from the city centre ?

Is there a regular bus service ?

How many Euros ?

Many thanks in advance
Guest

Small/easy

Approx 45 mins by coach, prob about 10 miles

Terravision coach every 15 mins, or bus then metro (I did the former)

10 or 12 Euros return I think it was (defo no more than 15E)

Hope that helps
Guest

ya the terravision buses are outside and to the left as you come out of the terminal. 8 euro one way. 40 minutes to get into Rome 15km, they pull up at the train station, (Termini) on the north side of it which would be to the left if you face it.

the bus to the stadium goes from in front of the station across the square a bit (the number 910) that stops in Piazza Mancini and you just walk across the bus park and across the massive bridge to the stadium.
Guest

According to the Milan site there are a list of shops you can buy them from.

Guest

yeah - Milan or Besticket is not selling online now. I've found this site http://www.mpestero.com/ but can't vouch for them - the chap running it is called Tonino and seemingly he'll meet you at the stadium with prepaid tickets, charges a tenner per ticket i think.
Guest

I was at the Roma-Fiorentina game on 24/2. Walked from the Ottaviano metro near the Vatican. Only 35 minutes walk. This might be a better option after the match as the buses are packed. Also take your passport or identifaction . Been to other Italian matches and only had to produce passport to buy the ticket. At the Olimpico it was different. Was asked for ID at the stadium. Had none.Two of the stewards were OK (older guys ) but one was a jobsworth. Luckily one of the older stewards intervened. So take some ID just in case.

Bus I took from Ciampino had a picture of a man doffing a bowler hat.
5 euros there and 6 euros back from main station.

dont know if you've been to roma before, but romans are not particularly friendly folk so have your wits about you
Guest

well thats a bit rich?! never had anything but friendliness from romans I have to say. even at the stadium i was mistaken for english at the roma man utd match but the fans offered me lift into town etc.

maybe ive just been lucky on my visits to rome but can't say ive found the locals unfriendly

all about opinions. i've been twice and didnt find the locals friendly at all (didnt go to a match either time btw)

but maybe romans are friendly after all!

Romans arent particularly friendly and can be quite rude...ive been living here for 6 years and I have to say that the Southerns are much more friendly.

Juve tickets?

Juve-Napoli tickets were supposed to go on sale at 3pm (BST) Monday. I checked the website at 6pm on Monday and since then, but they are not on sale. Surely they didn't sell out in 3 hours! Maybe they did!

I'm going to the Juve-Parma game in two weeks and i'll probably be in work when they go on sale so won't be online until 6pm again.

Does anyone know if listicket are definitely still selling Juve home tickets this season?

Footnote: the lega-calcio are taking their time releasing the exact date/time of the game (as usual)!
Guest

Myles wrote:

Yeah that really annoys me as well, makes day trips impossible. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do now, I was looking at Pisa-Chievo and Fiorentina-Samp next month but I have my dissertation due in the day after... I guess I could get it done early though, then Italy would be the ultimate reward :D

Failing that I might look into Naples and possible Napoli-Milan weekend... I've still got the offer of a Milan derby ticket but am not sure I want to go back to Milan so soon.
Myles

www.listicket.it is such a piece of shit, took 2 hours to get my tickets for the Juve-Parma game!

But at least i have them now.
Jimmilson

Listicket really is a steaming pile of... I'm trying to get my tickets for Sunday's game with Catania and, after loads of error messages, they're suddenly no longer showing. Now I'm slightly apprehensive about picking up tickets for the match, though I can find nothing to suggest the game's a sell out. Maybe we're gonna have to queue outside the ticket office around the ground (dunno whether to go for ovest or est this time - anything would do though)!
Myles

I checked 2 hours after they went on sale and there was nothing about the game on listicket, i didn't think they'd sell out!!!

I reckon it's just listicket being shite again, probably back on the website tomorrow. For the Parma game i got them 4 hours after they went on sale, then they disappeared a day later but then re-appeared a day after that.

The Lazio game wasn't sold out and that was part of the three game package (Milan, Lazio and Catania) so obviously not all the tickets were sold out via that package.

It's just listicket i reckon, always useless!
Jimmilson

I hope so. It's a long way to go to watch a match on the tv! I've had my problems with listicket in the past so I'm hopeful I'll sort it either during the week or prior to the match at the stadium.
Myles

Ditto.

Ovest or Est, i'll take anything at this stage!
Jimmilson

you heading over for it too?
Myles

Yeah, i'll be there on Saturday, until Monday.

I was lucky Fiorentina didn't beat Rangers, i doubt i would've made it in time if the games were moved to the Saturday at 3pm, at the least i would've been late for it then.

If you want to meet up for a few beers, let me know.
Jimmilson

Yeah definitely. Send me a message. I'm heading across with a mate on Friday, staying in Turin until after the match when we're getting the train to Milan and having a couple of nights there.
Myles

It was on the web today, but only gave details for the call centre. I rang them (0039063700106) and it's sold out!

f**k that anyway, a tout it is then.
Jimmilson

That's not what I wanted to read. Might have to follow you to the stadium to deal with the touts then. I'll still hold out hope that one or two tickets might still become available.

That stupid listicket site done me over - when they went on sale on tuesday the site kept crashing

The only other option I can think of is visiting the San Siro as a Siena fan.
Jimmilson

....that said, it wouldn't be the first time I'd have been told a match in Italy was sold out only to be able to buy a ticket on or around the day of the match.

....ever the optimist!

Does anyone know whn the Serie A fixtures will be out for next season? I'm gonna be in Naples on Sunday 14 Sept, so am praying they'll be at home. Otherwise, it's a long train ride to Rome...

Guest

Hi, I'm going to be in Milan at the end of September and would love to go the Milan derby. I dont really  have any  idea about how to buy tickets. I have seen a few tout sites about but Id rather not go through a tout website if possible. I was wondering if anyone has ever been and can give me any advice on how to get tickets, like booking them through the clubs or just buying them outside on the day?

Thanks

Milan

Help needed from any Italian speaking Milan fans.

On the Milan website they seem to be advertising a Cuore Rossonero Card.

Anyone tell me what this is all about.

Will I still be able to go over and my tickets at Milan Point?

Do I need one of these cards?

Bound to be able to get a ticket, I've been San Paolo, place is like the Maracana or Azteca HUGE.  

When your their go to Ischia (beautiful).
Guest

Cheers mate!

Looking forward to it - only got 3 days, so I want to see Vesuvius, Pompeii, Capri, some football and some time in Napoli itself.

As for the San Paolo, I read somewhere Napoli's intertoto match was a 65,000 sell out so I might struggle to get in.
Guest

It's safe going to a Roma game just watch out for the fiorentina fans if your wearing colours. You can buy tickets from the Roma store which are located around the city if you can't get tickets off that website. Im hoping to go and catch a Roma game in October. The Olimpico is a large stadium and it rarely sells fully out so tickets should be ok.
FORZA ROMA PER SEMPRE
Guest

I know it's not Italy, but it's not too far away...

I'm off to Nice soon for a weekend and fancy going to a match - unfortunately Monaco are away when I'm there, and Marseille is too far away so it'll have to be Nice.  Anyone ever been there or to a French game?  Know if I'll have any trouble getting a ticket (they're playing Sochaux when I'm there, who are bottom of the league and a small club anyway)
Curva Fiesole

Not football but, if they're at home, try and get down to Toulon to watch the rugby.  Watched their game against Stade Francais a couple of weeks back and there were more punches thrown than at an Amir Khan fight!

Football is not well attended in France and, due to the size of the country, few away fans will make the trip so tickets should be easy to come by.
Guest

Lazio tickets for Rome Derby in April 2009 ?

Hey does anyone know where one can buy 8 or so tickets for the Curva Nord for next April's Lazio - Roma fixture?  I am looking for a reliable site and a site other than http://www.romalazio.co.uk

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks

I think Curva Nord is season ticket holders only.

Trouble at Italian grounds

This is my first post. I'm hoping to go to some games in Italy this season, all over really. What's it like for a Brit? I won't be wearing colours or anything but anyone in Italy can tell I'm British because I dress so badly. I don't want to get stabbed in the buttocks or anything. Where's good/bad to go? Is it really as grim as some people make out?

Nah you'll be fine. Best bet is to stay out of the Curvas (behind the goals) and stick to the more expensive seats...

Can anyone tell me if it's easy or a pain to get to the centre of Milan from Malpensa airport by train or bus? Grazie!
Myles

I've only flown to Linate but as far as i know from when i reseached it there's a shuttle bus that takes about 50 minutes from Malpensa to Milano Centrale train station, depending on traffic.

If you happen to be going from Torino to Malpensa, there is a direct bus called Sadem, takes about 2 hours.
Guest

Probably the easiest way to get to central Milan is to take the night train from Paris, which you can do from £60 return. It's not an early start from London and you get time for a croque monsieur in Paris on the way. The Eurostar to Paris costs about the same, if you book ahead. Brunch in London, late lunch in Paris, breakfast in Milan. If I was going to Sicily or Sardinia, I'd contemplate flying, but Milan, no. Far too much palaver.
Guest

Il Ferret, I have taken the train from Malpensa into Milan. It was only about 40 minutes and terminates at Cadorna station which also has a metro stop (red line). Cannot remember the cost as it was 2003, but it was not expensive.
Guest

Cheers for the Milan help guys. Found a cheap-ish flight from Brum so I mght go for it. The train sounds a good idea for those conscious about the environment, but I don't give a shit really, and it'd be more than twice the price of the flight!

I'm not sure the train is the green option. It might be that getting four people in a small car is the 'greenest' way to go. But that's complicated calculations and not for here… More expensive? Probably, though maybe not so much of you're going for the weekend. The one thing the train does though is get you from city to city without hassle, which was my point. But it'd be interesting to compare prices. It's a long while since I made that trip by train but I hope to go to Milan or Rome by train in December (because I'm scared of aeroplanes) so why not make a note of what the trip costs you in transport and maybe we'll compare? Meanwhile, Ferret, have a bloody good trip!
Guest

I reckon I'd be looking at £20 to leave my car at Brum airport for 3 days, £80 all-in return for ryanair flights with on-line check-in and hand baggage only. So £100 for a 2 hour flight, 1 hour messing about before the flight, 90 mins and about €10 getting from the plane to the city centre? You can't beat flying (unless you're scared of course!)
Guest

My hat. I think you win, Ferret. I'm looking at £60 to London, £60 to Paris and £60 to Milan, plus tube/metro tickets: best part of £200. So that croque monsieur is going to cost me £100. It had better be good!
Guest

Anyone know if tickets are available for Milan - Napoli this weekend...?

I won tickets in an Italian Fantasy football last year and picked this match to go and see, I have my flights and hotel already booked but i'm reading everywhere that only season ticket holders and registered locals of milan can go to this match!

Don't know how i'd have got tickets for it if this is the case!

Gonna mail the company that are orgainising the tickets for me to see what the situation is but just in the meantime if anyone knows anything else abou this could they let me now please?

Thanks.......
Guest

Maybe it's to prevent Napoli fans getting tickets - they're banned ffrom attending away games.
Guest

Yeah it is to try and prevent Napoli fans from getting tickets....!

Might prevent me from getting in too even though i'm a Milan Fan!

Still haven't got a reply off the company that said that they'd get me tickets for that match so i don't know whats happening at the min!
Myles

Going to Juve-Bate. Anyone know if the Juve tickets for the CL games are sold on www.listicket.it aswel ?

Shouldn't be a problem getting tickets for Juve-Bate game, now that it's a meaningless game. Pity i won't get to watch Alex, Nedved and anyone else who is rested. Hopefully Giovinco gets a full game anyway.

Hi

I'm In Florence this weekend and was hoping to catch the Fiorentina - Catania match. I know Mezz has posted the location of various ticket offices in Florence which is great, but I was wondering where the best place to sit was and how ealy should I get the tickets? I will there from tomorrow.

Thanks
Mezz

You shouldn't find it difficult to get tickets for the game against Catania.

There's actually an official Fiorentina ticket store now, which is on the corner of Via Giovanni Dupré and Via Settesanti (it's building number 28 on Via Dupré) about 200 meters west of the Artemio Franchi stadium.

Inside the ground, I would go for anywhere on the Maratona. Tickets for that area range from €30 for Maratona Laterale to €50 for Maratona Centrale. There are cheaper areas, such as Curva Ferrovia, but the view isn't so good.

All the best!
Guest

Has anyone here used seatwave.com? It's a ticket exchange site and looks decent enough, but am always a bit wary of agencies.

http://www.seatwave.com/inter-mil...kets/15-february-2009/perf/157097

Obviously prices are a bit inflated but nowhere near what Red Card, Football Encounters, etc would charge.

Also, are Juve tickets usually available the day of the game? I'm looking at the Samp fixture, or possibly Genoa-Viola and Atalanta-Roma if anyone has info on those grounds. Thanks!
Myles

diatribe wrote:

Possibly for the Samp game, hard to know for sure sometimes.

What would be stopping you from buying a ticket when they go on sale on www.listicket.it ? They go on sale usually the Monday before the weekend games so by then you'd know if you were going to be in Torino on that weekend. You'd need to give the date of birth of the other people you are getting a ticket for aswell (assuming you might not be going on your own), just so you know to have that info on hand when booking.

If you've no credit card to book online you'd have to take your chances that the game won't be sold-out by the time you get to turin. You can buy from shops which are listicket agents, you can find their locations here >> http://www.listicket.it/puntivend...Organizzazione=124&idCanale=1 just select the province in the drop-down menu called Scegli la provincia and select TO , then it will show you the listicket agents in Turin. They're all hooked up to the same computer system so if one shop is sold out they are all sold out so don't waste your time going from one shop to another.

If you buy off a tout (can do so from behind the curva nord) you will need to go to the ticket office behind the Tribuna Est with your passport to get the name changed on it and then you'll be allowed entry to the stadium. For the Samp game i'd say a ticket off a tout would probably cost about €70-80 for Tribuna Est which is cheaper than the Tribuna Ovest. Beware that they don't sell you a Tribuna Est Laterale as this is in the corner and you're also in with all the academies so aload of kids aswel. However, if you only get to the stadium 15-30 minutes before the game this section might be all that is left.

Here's the seating map for the Stadio Olympico di Torino >> http://www.juventus.com/site/filesite/Mappa_stadio_con_settori.pdf

To get to the Stadium from the city center, you get the tram/bus no.'s 4 or 63 from the side of the Porto Nuovo Train Station and get off at the Sebastopoli stop, takes about 10 minutes. Some trams have signs hanging from the roof telling you what stop is next. You buy the tram tickets in most newsagents, cost €1 each. Here's the map of the tram/bus lines >> http://www.calcio-italiano.com/manifestoottobre08.pdf (7.6MB)

Milan and Turin derby dates announced, among others
Guest

Thanks for all the info Myles, looks like I'll be heading to Turin so much appreciated. Grazie also Mr CalcioItalia.

With the cost of trips going up I defo want to do 2 games in 1 visit, which won't be possible on Milan derby weekend. I'd prefer to do that when Milan are at home anyway, plus it saves me from lining Moratti's pockets.

So it's looking like Juve-Napoli and one of Inter-Roma, Atalanta-Chievo and Samp-Milan the next day if all goes to plan.

Ok , this is the scene

Am aimimg to go to the Juve v Napoli game on Feb 28th.I hear that it will be very difficult to get tickets NOT because its a likely sell out but as Napolis mob are a bit "tasty" and the club are unlikely to sell tickets to "unknowns"

i have a hotel to go to which is mint (been before) but need to be sure I can get tickets before i get flights etc

Thanks in advance Myles...your mega !!!

Yeah last season the tickets for the Juve-Napoli game were for Turin residents only, so on that basis i wouldn't chance it.

Your only option would be a tout, but when you go to get the name changed on the ticket you might still have to prove residency.

Then again, i think Juve-Catania was high risk last season so myself and Jimmilson couldn't get the tickets on the net, yet we were still able to get the name changed on the tickets without proving residency, which defeats the purpose in the first place!

Games moved to Fridays and Saturdays?

Can anyone tell me how often games are moved and how the decision is taken to move a game to a Friday or Saturday.

In Serie A it seems that there are always two games on a Saturday and Serie B sometimes has a game on a Friday and one on a Monday?

Are these the most high profile games or is it just down to TV etc?

The reason for asking is that I am visiting Naples over Easter. All the Serie A games that weekend seem to be listed for the Saturday (11/04/09). Napoli - Atalanta

Can anyone tell me from experience do they move some games to the Friday when the whole fixture list has been put back to Saturday (I am guessing that they wont play any games on Easter Sunday)?

I dont want to travel on the Saturday and miss the game if its moved to the Friday. Also does anyone know when decisions to move games are actually taken, is it just a week or so before?

Cheers

Oh my gosh did you name yourself after Tomy's Super Cup Football game? That toy was awesome!

To answer your question I don't know.

I believe it is a few weeks before, but i'm sure somebody else could tell you for definite.

A fellow Simon Jordan hater eh?

All games on Easter weekend take place on the Saturday.

In general they announce it a few weekends in advance, with changes depending on big fixtures and when/if teams are playing in Europe.

In Serie B I think the Friday game tends to be any fixture and the Monday one a big 'un.

Btw, calcioitalia isn't neccessarily a Mr.  

Good point! Apologies if so.

Booked my flights, £45 return with taxes so worst comes to worst I get to see Turin.

Football Encounters has Juve-Napoli tickets along the side for £64 which is OTT but should guarantee I get in. Then I'll try and get Samp-Milan tickets through their site.

ha! Most defiantly.

I'm going out for a few games but most important is Livorno v Parma. I think this one could be moved to the Monday.

Cheers for the info.

Assistance please Myles...Looking for a game in Siere B for the Saturday of week 26.At the mo it's looking like Modena v Parma as its communicatable (?) from Milan.

Can you give me the heads up on how difficult it would be to get tickets ?

Many thanks in advance

Good choice of game, a derby and shouldn't take too long from Milan. I think the Milan-Florence train stops there after Parma so you may get a few gialloblu ultras jumping on!

I can't see a biglietti section on Modena's site but you should be ok, I'd send a few emails out and get there asap on match day.

If not Mantova-Bari is doable and looks a very impressive town. Plus Bari are going very well at the moment.
