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!

The 2 teenagers who accompanied me were impatient to be able to visit this legendary place. We were not disappointed. Everything is very well organized, you can see everything, even the place where the President of the Republic sits when he is at the stadium. The guide was very good, she told us anecdotes and memories of great meetings. There is no shortage of museums with the stadium construction archives and photos of the various major events. You just need to know that you have to walk a lot, going up and down stairs, it is better to be fit and well fitted!

For those who like football is a very interesting tour. The guide tells the story in detail. We see the grandeur of the Stade de France up close. Really for those who go from RER to the stadium, walks too much. But just get out early with good planning. The guide, which I don't remember the name, is spectacular. She is Italian and made funny comments all the time. She is very intelligent and has very quick thinking. It is worth too much who likes the sport.

The tour started a bit late, we were told at the beginning, so we could use the time in the shop and museum. The guide was in English, my average son could understand the majority after 2 years of school English. It was a very lively tour that was fun for my teenage daughter as well.
