Allianz Arena
I went to Munich with 3 friends of mine that i know since the high school: Francesco aka Zano, Flavio and Giorgio aka Pelle. We decided to spent ur NYE this summer because at Cavallino, close to Venice, where we spent a week we met two guys fromk germany -  Melly and Bastian and they told us that they live not far from Munich.
So we kept in touch with them during the fall and they told us that someday we could go to visit us. We suppose to go there during the Oktoberfest but it was a busy period for us because of the university exams. So at last we decided to go to Germany during the winter break.
We left the 29th at 6 a.m. with Zano's car (a fiat punto) and after a break close to Trento we arrived in Munich at midday.
Allianz Arena
Before going to the Hostel to check in we decided to visit the Temple of the soccer-lovers: the Allianz Arena.

The stadium was one of the venues for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. However, due to sponsorship contracts, the arena was called FIFA World Cup Stadium Munich during the World Cup. The two professional Munich football clubs FC Bayern Munchen and TSV 1860 Munchen have played their home games at Allianz Arena since the start of the 2005/06 season. The arena facade is constructed of 2,874 oil air panels that are kept inflated with dry air to a differential pressure. The panels appear white from far away but when examined closely, there are little dots on the panels. When you view the panel from far away, your eye combines the little dots and sees white.

When you look at it close up, you can see through the foil. The foil has a thickness of 0.2 mm. Each panel can be independently lit with white, red, or blue light. The intention is to light the panels at each game with the colors of the respective home team, or white if the home team is the German nationa football team.Allianz Arena also offers three day-care centers, two fan shops, the FC Bayern München Megastore and the TSV 1860 München Allianz Arena Megastore. Merchandise is offered at stands all along the inside of the exterior wall inside the area behind the seats. Numerous restaurants and fast food establishments are also located around the stadium.There are four team locker rooms (one each for the two home teams and their respective opponents), four coaches' locker rooms and two locker rooms for referees.
Visit the Stadium with a guide is about 10 euros but if you are a soccer lovers it is worth it.
