I visited Bilbao for a Europa League game some weeks ago. This stadium is a real temple of the sport and all the comments I had read about it dont do justice. Integral part of the city and surrounded by bars that ooze passion for their home team, the San Mames is easily accessible and awe inspiring. When the Athletic... More

I am arriving Madrid around 7am on Jan 25 and would like to attend the Athletico Madrid game by 11am. I would like to know which means of transport is fastest and safest to get to the game. Also, where to stay overnight. Thanks

Home to Athletic Bilbao. The stadium tour was very enjoyable and I would recommend it to any football fans visiting the area.

If you are a fan of Athletic then this is no doubt the Holy Grail, for anybody else it is slightly odd: the exhibition is interesting enough but like so many other things in the Basque country it simply ignores the dictatorship and the impact on the club - for instance they were forced to change the club's name at...
