Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)

Teams: Fiorentina
Capacity: 47,290
Built: 1931
City: Florence

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is renowned for art and culture. It is therefore quite apt that it has a stadium that is one of the best examples of 20th century architecture in the whole of the city. Designed by architect Pier Luigi Nervi the stadium includes a huge tower called the “Tower of Marathon” which is 230ft tall.

The concrete stadium has superb Roman style pillars at the entrance and once inside there is a perfect view from whatever seat you are given. The stadium was renovated for the 1990 World Cup and this took the form of removing the running track and adding extra seating.

This now makes the stadium a purpose built football arena and the large capacity creates an electric atmosphere. One fantastic attribute this stadium has is that from the stands you can look out onto the rolling Tuscan hills, a view which is truly breath-taking. The Ultras on the Curva Fiesole are known as La Vecchia Guardia Firenze and are loud, well organised and fiercely anti Juventus. If you are going to watch football in Italy this is a venue that should be near the top of the list.
