So, let’s show you how vacations are done “Liverpool-style,” as we explore:

  • The favorite vacation spots of Liverpool's footballers

  • How to plan your own vacation inspired by LFC footballers

1 - Salah’s Secret Gateway: Mykonos, Greece

Mohammed Salah, Liverpool’s all-time top scorer, has an affinity for the Greek island of Mykonos. The Egyptian superstar was spotted relaxing on the beaches of the island after signing his £400,000-a-week deal in 2022, committing his future to the Reds.

The stunning island, located in the Aegean Sea, is known for its crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches, and vibrant nightlife, making it an ideal vacation spot if you’re looking to unwind and have some fun.

But the beaches and the party scene aren’t the only things to enjoy while on the island.

  • Wander around the picturesque town of Mykonos, with its narrow alleys, whitewashed buildings, and charming windmills.
  • Visit the iconic Paraportiani Church, a stunning example of Cycladic architecture.
  • Take a boat tour to the nearby island of Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece.
  • Enjoy local cuisine by trying traditional dishes like moussaka, souvlaki, or feta cheese.
  • Take a stroll through the Matoyianni Street shopping district, where you can find a variety of local products, souvenirs, and designer clothes.

Salah recovers from the grueling football season by kicking up his feet and soaking up the sun on Principote Beach, one of the many beautiful beaches in Mykonos.

He loves to indulge in local cuisine from the beachfront restaurants, swim in the turquoise waters, or participate in watersports such as paddle boarding and jet skiing.

Follow in Salah’s footsteps while showing your LFC pride with the Men’s 89 Home Swim Shorts from The Anfield Shop.

The Anfield Shop offers authentic Liverpool kits that you can vacation in, such as:

2 - Darwin Nunez: The Glamorous and Exotic Dubai

Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez has already made quite an impression on the football field.

He’s so far scored 15 goals for Liverpool in his 42 appearances. This includes two goals against Manchester United during the jaw-dropping 7–0 demolition at Anfield in March 2023.

As it turns out, the star also knows how to live it up when it comes to vacations. Nunez was spotted cruising around Dubai on a speedboat and enjoying all that the vibrant city has to offer.

Dubai is known for its extravagant and luxurious lifestyle. From its towering skyscrapers with modern architecture to golden beaches lapped by the crystal-clear waters of the Arabian Gulf, there’s no shortage of excitement here.

One of the best ways to experience the city is from the water, and Nunez certainly did it in style. Cruising along the coast in a sleek speedboat, he had the chance to take in the stunning views of the city's iconic landmarks, from the Burj Khalifa to the Palm Jumeirah.

But if you're not exactly swimming in cash like Nunez, there are plenty of more affordable ways to experience the city's charms as well.

From exploring the traditional souks to taking in the world-class art and cultural exhibitions, there's something for everyone in this vibrant city.

So, if you're looking to add a little excitement to your next vacation, why not take a cue from Darwin Nunez and plan a trip to the dazzling city of Dubai?

Show some love for your team by taking photos in Nunez’s official LFC gear in front of Dubai’s iconic landmarks.

3 - Thiago Alacantra: Epic Adventures in Las Vegas and Malibu

While you might not be able to travel abroad just yet, you can vacation right here in the US by checking out Thiago's favorite spots.

Thiago indulged in a mid-season holiday as the World Cup was taking place in Qatar, in Las Vegas, with his lovely wife, Julia Vigas. They both enjoyed the world-famous show Cirque du Soleil, where they watched the mesmerizing performances of various acrobats, aerial artists, and gymnasts.

Why This Matters: You would be one of the more than 180 million spectators who have seen a Cirque du Soleil show since its inception in 1984.

Afterwards, they headed over to Zuma, the amazing Japanese restaurant that serves an izakaya-inspired menu. They were also photographed enjoying each other's company at dizzying heights with the desert in the background.

The couple then ventured off to Malibu and spent some time enjoying the breathtaking views of California's coastline while sunbathing on the sandy shores.

Add some Liverpool flair to your Malibu vacation by carrying all your beach essentials in the LFC-themed bags and purses from our shop. You can also style your beach wear with Liverpool FC accessories, such as:

“Haven’t lost a game since I got it and wear it, so expect three more trophies.” — Tim C., Verified Customer

“Fits good, great way to display my love for the reds.” — Rich W., Verified Customer

4 - Harvey Elliot and Roberto Firmino: Paradise in the Maldives

When Harvey Elliot and Roberto Firmino are off the field, they’re enjoying some much-needed leisure time in the Maldives.

Known for its crystal-clear waters, stunning coral reefs, and white sandy beaches, the Maldives is a tropical paradise that offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Firmino has been spotted at least twice taking a dip in the ocean while in the Maldives.

When it comes to island life, Elliot is all about the party scene. He shared a video of himself and teammate Kostas Tsimikas letting loose at a nightclub in the Maldives.

Besides partying and swimming in the ocean, there are also plenty of other opportunities to stay active in the Maldives. Whether it's snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters, kayaking around the islands, or exploring the local marine life, there’s always an adventure to go on.

And let's not forget about the breathtaking sunsets the island is famous for. Elliot and Firmino love to take in the stunning views while on the beach. It's no surprise that they return to the Maldives time and time again.

Take a leaf out of Elliot and Firmino’s book and head to the Maldives. And who knows? You might just bump into these two athletes while you’re there.

5 - Ibrahima Konate: The Wild Plains of Tanzania

Get ready to pack your bags and follow in the footsteps of Ibrahima Konate. This young and talented footballer is not only making waves on the field but also off it with his jet-setting adventures that will make any Liverpool fan envious.

Konate's latest adventure took him to Tanzania, where he was seen riding a Vespa in Zanzibar and shouting "Mashallah!", a traditional Arabic greeting that expresses joy.

This video quickly went viral among Liverpool fans, who were thrilled to see their new defender enjoying some well-deserved downtime.

But that's not all—Konate has also been spotted on the sunny beaches of the south of France, where he celebrated his move to Liverpool with his family. The young footballer knows how to balance work and play.

If you’re looking for a relaxing beach trip coupled with an adrenaline-fueled safari, you can get inspiration from Konate’s travels to Tanzania.

From the wild plains of the Serengeti to the luxurious beaches of Zanzibar, a trip to Tanzania will certainly satisfy your wanderlust.

Did You Know? The Serengeti National Park harbors the largest remaining unaltered annual animal migration called the wildebeest migration, termed as the annual world cup that occurs between the Serengeti and Maasai Mara National Reserve of Kenya through the Mara River.

6 - Alisson Becker’s Escape to the Eternal City of Rome

Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is a key player for Liverpool. When he’s not making saves for his club, he’s recharging with his family while on holiday.

His favorite vacation spot is in Rome, Italy, where he has been spotted enjoying the sights and sounds of this historic city.

Becker shared his travel experiences on social media, including photos of his trip to Rome. From the famous Colosseum to the stunning Vatican City, Alisson soaked up all that Rome had to offer.

But one attraction stood out in particular: the iconic Trevi Fountain.

In one of his photos, Becker can be seen standing with his son in front of the Trevi Fountain. He probably also indulged in the tradition of tossing a coin in the fountain.

According to legend, throwing a coin over your shoulder into the fountain guarantees that you will return to Rome someday. It's a tradition that has been practiced for centuries, and Alisson was clearly not one to miss out on this opportunity.

But the Trevi Fountain is not the only reason to visit Rome.

This city is a hub of history, culture, and culinary delights. From the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum to the breathtaking Sistine Chapel, there is so much to explore and discover in Rome.

Fun Fact: Contrary to popular belief, Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel in a standing position. When imagining Michelangelo creating his legendary frescoes, most people assume he was lying down. But in fact, the artist and his assistants used wooden scaffolds that allowed them to stand upright and reach above their heads.

And don't forget to try some of the local cuisine, such as classic pasta dishes or refreshing gelato. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of Becker himself enjoying some Italian delicacies during his next trip to Rome.

Speaking of Alisson Becker, if you're looking to add some LFC memorabilia to your collection, our Alisson Becker—Football Resin Statue captures the essence of the player perfectly, with intricate detail that makes it a true work of art.

You can see the smile on his face as he firmly holds the ball, just like he does on the field. We've created a mirror image of the real Alisson Becker with painstaking craftsmanship, making this one of the finest quality football statues ever produced.

It's the perfect addition to any Liverpool fan's collection and a great way to pay homage to the goalkeeper's amazing defensive abilities. Browse more Liverpool FC collectibles on our store.

7 - Diogo Jota: The Dreamy Santorini

Diogo Jota, the Portuguese forward who’s a fan favorite at Liverpool, is renowned for his electrifying pace and scoring prowess. However, when he's off the field, he likes to escape to the dreamy island of Santorini.

Nestled in the Aegean Sea, Santorini is another stunning Greek island known for its white-washed buildings, turquoise waters, and breathtaking sunsets.

It's a popular vacation spot for celebrities, and Jota is just one of many who have fallen in love with this paradise.

So, what makes Santorini so special? For Jota, it's the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure. He loves spending lazy afternoons lounging on the island's pristine beaches, soaking up the Mediterranean sun.

But there’s also more to explore on the island, such as:

  • The island's rugged terrain, which offers hiking opportunities along scenic trails and discovering hidden coves and beaches.
  • Boat tours around the island, stopping at secluded beaches and snorkeling spots along the way.
  • The island's picturesque villages, such as Oia and Fira, where you can wander through the cobblestone streets, admire the stunning architecture, and sample local cuisine.

For Jota, Santorini is the ultimate escape from the pressures of professional football. It's where he can recharge his batteries, soak up some much-needed rest and relaxation, and create unforgettable memories with his lovely girlfriend.

How to Plan Your Own Vacation Inspired by Liverpool’s Footballers

Are you looking to plan a vacation inspired by Liverpool's footballers? Then here are some tips on creating a travel itinerary:

  1. Research the vacation spots favored by your favorite players. Make a list of all the cool places you’d like to visit.
  2. Consider travel time, accommodation options, and local transport when planning where to go.
    For instance, if you intend to travel to Mykonos from Athens via ferry, you need to plan your arrival time. You don’t want to miss out on the scheduled ferry times and end up spending an entire day in Athens waiting for the next ferry.
  3. Plan your trip during the offseason or during international breaks so you can potentially catch your favorite Liverpool players who are also on vacation.
  4. Consider hiring a local guide to get a more immersive experience and learn more about the local culture and history. Make sure to also explore the city’s major attractions.
    And while we’re talking about fully experiencing your destination, make sure you try the local cuisine. Nothing captures the essence of a place like its food.
  5. Don't forget to pack your Liverpool FC merchandise so that you can show your passion for this iconic team. Check out The Anfield Shop products for LFC fan apparel to represent your team wherever you are.
