While Portugal may not be as well-known for having avid soccer fans as Spain or England, the Portuguese still love their futebol. Porto's home team, F.C. Porto, is one of the country's "Big Three" — the three most successful multi-sports clubs in Portugal — and plays in Dragão Stadium. You can take a tour of the stadium: A guide will escort you to see the presidential box, locker rooms and players' benches. Or, skip the tour and explore the on-site museum, which highlights F.C. Porto's history and showcases trophies like the UEFA Cup and European Super Cup. But if you really want to experience the stadium come alive, get a ticket to a soccer match.
While tickets for games can be pricey, most travelers say it's well worth the cost to see the passionate fans and talented players. "This stadium is full of magic. The design is magnificent and the atmosphere is spectacular," said one TripAdvisor user. "Everybody should go there."
Tours of the stadium cost €8 EUR (about $11 USD) and tickets to the museum cost €12 EUR (about $16.50 USD), but you can purchase a combo ticket for €15 EUR (around $20 USD) that covers the cost of both the guided tour and museum entry. Tickets to games vary, but can range anywhere from €25 EUR to more than €200 EUR ($35 to $275 USD) depending on your seat selection and the opponent. Dragão Stadium is located in northeastern Porto, and can be reached via metro lines A, B, E or F (blue, red, purple or orange) to the Estadio do Dragão stop.
