Join us in Milan and see one of the greatest derbies in football the local way: The Derby Della Madonnina.
The derby between Internazionale v AC Milan takes its name from the golden Virgin Mary statue which overlooks the Duomo in the city centre, giving the match a sense of deep religious resonance. As well as the statue, the stadium in which the games are played is an intrinsic factor in the enormity of the derby.
Twice a year in Serie A, the iconic San Siro stadium is transformed into a cathedral that stages the derby. It is the cathedral of European football and provides the perfect backdrop for one of football’s absolute bucket list events. Milan balances history and romance with a fast-paced business lifestyle.
