A trip to Rome’s impressive Stadio Olimpico offers an unforgettable insight into Rome’s sporting heart. Throughout the football season (late August to May) there’s a game on most Sundays featuring one of the city's two Serie A teams (Roma or Lazio), and during the Six Nations rugby tournament (February to March) it hosts Italy's home games.

Tickets cost from €20 depending on the match and can be bought at Lottomatica (lottery centres), the stadium, ticket agencies, www.listicket.it or one of the many Roma or Lazio stores around the city.
