Why not get away from it all and experience the Italian passion for rugby at the Stadio Olimpico!! The Six Nations Championship is without doubt the world’s greatest rugby tournament. It is the successor of the several competitions played by the most important European teams at the end of the 19th Century. Each year thousands of fans of six proud nations: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wale, share the passion and excitement of this feast of rugby. Some of the rivalries in this tournament date back more than 140 years, which simply adds to the sense of occasion. Italy joined in 2000 (till then it was called Five Nations), thanks to the great results that it has gradually achieved since the nineties.
On February 7 Ireland will come to Rome to begin the defence of their Six Nations title against Italy at the Stadio Olimpico.
Rome’s Stadio Olimpico is the splendid venue for this Six Nations Championship game where the ever improving Italians provide the opposition for Ireland’s first outing.
This is a unique opportunity to see the Italy v Ireland rugby match and enjoy a weekend break in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the Eternal city! Come and discover glorious Rome. Go for a stroll through the charming cobble-stone streets and alleyways and you will be swept away by the breath-taking beauty of the majestic monuments and buildings. Rome gets into your blood and you will find yourself longing to come back time and time again.
