If you are a football fan: Go There! Go There! Go There! Make sure to bring a camera for the panoramic views and to show your friends!
You can take a tour of the stadium any time of the year - this gives you access to the changing rooms, the pitch-side and entry into the interactive museum, but to really sample the full FC Barcelona experience you simply have to go and watch a match live at the Camp Nou.
How to get tickets to see a match
Match tickets can often be purchased at the stadium ticket offices in the days running up to the game, but if you want to secure tickets in advance it’s worth buying online from the club itself at FC Barcelona so you can guarantee your seat in the Camp Nou before you arrive in Barcelona. Some authorised ticket agents also offer packages that include ticket delivery to your hotel and a bus transfer from the city centre to the stadium.
The biggest game of the season is FC Barcelona v Real Madrid. Tickets for the this match are in massive demand, so prices will be much higher than other matches.

How to get to the Camp Nou
The Camp Nou is located away from the city centre, but there are excellent links to public transport. Both the green (L3) and blue (L5) metro lines both have a number of stops situated close to the stadium: Maria Cristina or Palau Reial (L3 green) Badal or Collblanc (L5 blue) If you're taking a taxi, you could have a long wait after the game while waiting for crowds to clear.
Things to take with you
You can take plastic bottles up to 500ml (but they'll make you take the top off so it can't be thrown!), and if rain is forecast then take a waterproof (an umbrella will get you shouted at by other fans!). Smoking is now banned, although at half time (as of March 2014) there seem to be locations that people gather for a smoke in large numbers away from everyone else!)
Places to have a drink before the game
The Camp Nou only sells non-alcoholic beer, so if you want a few pre-match drinks, head to one of the few bars located outside the ground. There are a a few located close to Maria Cristina Metro station, and there is also a good Irish Bar about a 10 minute walk away.
