Detailed Description

Note that all soccer itineraries are dependent on the dates of fixtures, and costs of game tickets will vary wildly. This itinerary coincided with the past group stages of the Champions League to create the rare opportunity to experience three live matches – two Spanish La Liga fixtures and a midweek Champions League match. This itinerary will be customized to your exact dates and may operate in a different direction dependent on matches. The Spanish and Portuguese football seasons run from September to May, with teams playing on most weekends – there are sporadic one-week international breaks along with a winter break on the weeks either side of Christmas. The optimal time to visit is during the Champions League, with six match days (Tuesday and Wednesday fixtures) from mid-September to mid-November, then the knockout stages played on various Tuesdays and Wednesdays from mid-February to mid-April.
