The weather in Madrid this week has not been kind to me this week from a picture taking standpoint. It’s definitely tested the flexibility of my jacket, and the waterproofing of my gadget bag. However doing lunch at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu was definitely a highlight of this week.
The view from the upper floor while the girls and I did lunch was definitely something I would want to do again, when Real is actually playing, however I suspect the cost of that experience will definitely be challenging to the bank account for those reservations.
From a culinary standpoint, the food was quite decent – nothing to write home about, except for the price point of the Tapas themselves, but it was well worth it, just for the view of the pitch.
There is a guided tour of the stadium that cost 15 euros, which is a definite bargain for the experience. Some of the people online said it was one of the highlights of their lives … I wouldn’t go that far, but it is definitely a step up from the Hasely Crawford Stadium – and I’m not trying to be a hater on our stadium!
Getting there is simple enough … take the Metro (Line 10) to Santiago Bernabéu … easy enough, but ensure that you have reservations for the top floor or the greeter won’t let you up head up there, even for a picture.
