TIMETABLES AND TICKETS
The Champions League Final will take place on Saturday 26 May at 20: 45.
We recommend arriving a couple of hours in advance from the start time.
It is not recommended to arrive by car, due to the usual traffic jams and congested traffic.
Tickets, of course, vary depending on the sector. Obviously, close to the event, the lack of availability makes the price of the few coupons rise to the skies.
The advice is to move well in advance, buying tickets before knowing the names of the semi-finalists. You only have to bet that your favorite team will get to the end; just like that, you could save a lot of money.
WHAT TO DO
Whoever attends a Champions League final does so with only one aim: to support his favorite team. Despite this, a stop in the city should not be disdained. Do not limit yourself, if possible, to a simple "touch and go".
Kiev is a particularly lively and beautiful city, with lots of green spaces, attractions, monuments, and clubs to spend your evenings. In good weather, you can sunbathe and dive along the Dnipro.
Furthermore, it is a low-cost city. Transports have a ridiculous cost, and you can eat with a few euros.
WHERE TO SLEEP
The only caution, is to move with enormous advance. Book immediately, from queI'm linking, a room available, choosing according to your tastes and, above all, needs.
Book, right away, a room that provides free cancellation. If your favorite team had not arrived, and you did not want to leave, you can cancel your reservation without paying anything.
