"Visit the Nou Camp!"

If you're an avid football supporter like myself and you visit the fabulous city of Barcelona, its almost rude not to visit the Nou Camp, home of Barcelona FC of the spanish football league. It is the largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 98,772 - almost 10,000 more seats than the newly opened wembley stadium which cost £778million to build! It seems they're not satisfied with the current capacity as I was told on the tour of the stadium there are plans for expansion, taking the overall capacity over 100,000 - wow!

When visiting the stadium you can visit either the stadium museum, do the stadium tour or as I did, both. Its excellent value for money and there is so much to see, it really is a truly awesome experience.

The stadium tour takes you to many of the great places within the stadium, such as the players chapel, changing rooms (really impressive), players tunnel, pitchside dugout, the pitch (not always available to walk onto), the press area and the club presidents box ( features the best view in the whole stadium). It really is a great way to spend a couple of hours because you really get an insight into how good and big the club really is. They've had some truly fantastic players over the years and you get to grace the same changing rooms, players tunnel and if you're luckily enough even the pitch. From pitchside the panoramic view of the stadium it quite sensational, the stands seem so high and the seats seem to go on and on forever. Its remarkable to think that the capacity used to be over 120,00 but had to be reduced beacause the extra capacity was provided by a standing area at the top of one of the stands.

My favourite part of the tour was the tunnel and the walk which takes you pitchside, you can imagine you're a player and the feeling is incredible. Well recommended.

The stadium museum is called the Museu del Barca and is also an incredible place - where you could spend hours. Again you get the sense of how the good the team has been over the years as the museum actually houses 420 trophies! It tracks the history of the club from its origin right the way through to present day, featuring many famous pieces of memorabilia, such as signed shirts, boots and footballs aswell as many videos and photos. Fantastic place.
