  • Fantastic place, it is really buzzing on matches and on match day in general. Regarding atmosphere it is for sure one of the best in the entire universe. Before you go, remember to check if the supporters are allowed to the given match. Unfortunately it happens that they are banned. It is one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world!
  • It's a nice stadium.. a bit complex in directions but well built.. and has decent seating. Saw a Marseille vs Nice , derby match.. it was fun.
