What are the biggest Stadiums in Italy



Italy has some of the most beautiful stadiums globally, even though some would believe some stadia are old fashioned. In every country, the culture and trends are quite different.


When it comes to Italian football, it appears clubs spend heavily on players than on infrastructure. However, this trend has changed as clubs have begun working on existing infrastructure by either upgrading, installing or making some adjustments to already obsolete ones.



There are beautiful and outstanding soccer stadiums in Italy, these can be found in clubs in the Série A.


The Série A is one of the most competitive soccer leagues and has consistently ranked amongst the top five globally. Some of the most vibrant teams in the country are Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Fiorentina, etc.


Visiting Turin, taking a walk past Florence, driving down to Milano and watching the legends in Rome, we bring you the best soccer stadiums in Italy.
