Full description
Tour France's largest stadium on this unique 90-minute tour. Sit in a spectator's seat and take in the incredible panorama. As a privileged visitor, you’ll get to see the private boxes and locker room and walk through the same tunnel that players use to access the pitch. Your expert guide will tell you about the stadium’s history, its unique architecture and the stars who have appeared on its manicured pitch. Apart from sporting events, the stadium also hosts international shows. The Rolling Stones were the first group to perform at the Stade de France. International stars such as Madonna and ACDC also chose this venue for their concerts, witnessed by 80,000 spectators each time. End your visit at the museum, where you’ll find heaps of items that are testament to the stadium’s legendary history. On display are archives, models, autographed guitars, jerseys and much more. On this unique tour you’ll be able to follow the footsteps of football legends Zidane and Ronaldo, who played the 1998 FIFA World Cup final. This is also the site where Cristiano Ronaldo lifted his first major Trophy for Portugal!

This tour was absolutely amazing. I’m not a football fan, but my son (7 years) and my husband are. We ALL had a wonderful time. Our guide was awesome, and has good sense of humor. This activity is highly recommended even if you are not a football person.

My son is a football fanatic, he enjoyed knowing about the history and making of the stadium. Then he got to experience first hand how the players feel walking out at the World Cup. The tour guide was well engaged with us all. Great Tour! Gonna go to the PSG stadium tour next!

Great Tour. As a Mum of 3 boys, I have been on quite a few stadium tours. This one was the most interesting by far! We got a taxi from Paris to the stadium, no problem. However getting back via taxi was a nightmare. We were close to a Metro station but I wasn’t comfortable/ brave enough to use. My advise is to go for the tour but have your travel arrangements sorted beforehand.
