Stadio Olimpico, Rome

3.5
#5 of 81 in Fun & Games in Rome
Catch a game at Stadio Olimpico, Rome's cavernous sports arena and a property of the Italian National Olympic Committee. Constructed primarily as a football stadium, it's also home to the Italian national rugby team and is Italy's national sports stadium, used for all types of athletics. You can sometimes watch concerts here, too. Plan my day in Rome using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • We went for the Italy - Scotland game and arrived in plenty of time with the rest of the Doddie Gump crew...all 5000 of us,...so that might be one of the problems. It took a solid hour standing in 3 q...  more »

  • The Olympic Stadium, great. Aside from making them football matches are also concerts. Two years ago I went to see Tiziano ferro. I was comfortable sitting to sing. If you visit Rome you must visit. Have a good trip

  • The stadium is well organized and the different entrances are easy to find. Once you know your section you just go around the stadium till you reach your area. It is very easy to go by bus nr. 910 from the bus station Termini. One way is 1,5€ and you just stay till the last stop. The bus will not show any station name. From the bus stop you can sea the stadium already and you will need to walk for around 10min. The seats were quite dirty, but luckily company gave out free newspapers, so we could sit on them. Great view from all seat I assume. There are friendly sales guys who bring you snacks and drinks to your seat. They carry heavy boxes, just st four our convenience, so they always deserve a smile and friendly words! After the match it’s was easy to leave without waiting and we took the same bus back. Best vegan o but your bus ticket before you go to the match, so you can catch the first bus home. Bring your ID cards to the game if you have bought your tickets online.
  • What an awesome stadium. We watched the rugby here. Six Nations England vs. Italy. England won of course but it was still an amazing experience. The stadium holds almost 73,000. The location of the stadium is great. Beautiful scenery of hills and trees. Liked the fact that they bring food and drink to your seats like in the states. Beer is allowed but only when bought inside. Well organised. Got inside and out with no problems. Plenty of clean toilets.
  • It was a pain to get to on match day. It's easier to get a drink inside the ground than outside. There are guys selling beer in the seating area. No need to miss the action. I was there for Italy v England in six nations.
  • Saw the Italy Vs Scotland six nations game here. What an atmosphere! Great stadium for a great city.
  • Like many others recently visited for the RBS 6 Nations. Italy v England. Found the stadium no problem with plenty of little bars en-route to mingle with other England and Italy fans. Beautiful location and very good open fan village. Traditional Italian band playing outside before and inside during gave it more of a carnival atmosphere than a rugby game to be honest but it got both sets of fans going in a good way so good time had by all. €5 a pint isnt too bad I reckon. I've been charged more. Food selection is limited but cheaper than expected and good size. Downside to the interior is of course further from the field of play than normal, and the vendors march up and down the steps with beer and food to sell making it lethal when there's a crowd trying to get up and down. They could rethink that I reckon. Couple of seats off every few rows so they can step to the side rather than cause a bottleneck. The stadium itself was well supplied and ample clean toilets which is rare in sports stadiums these days. The overall experience was epic. Would definitely recommend and be going again
