Tickets A company based in Italy called Parallel Media is the official commercial agent for the Italian Rugby Federation and they sell the tickets to fans from any country.
You can either pay by bank transfer into their account, or by credit card. Using either of these ways, it can take several days, as Parallel Media need confirmation and contact information.
Prices start at £40 and can be as much as £200 for the best seats, but remember that these tickets all have some kind of hospitality included. Typically, food and drink are provided free in a tent outside the ground.
The official accredited company for tours from the U.K. is www.ebbokers.com., which sell package deals that usually start at about £200 for the ticket and flight. They will also help arrange your hotel if you want an all-inclusive package. They will also sell normal tickets but will charge a supplement for not taking the charter flight. Tickets start at £75, but bear in mind these have been sourced by the company, and are among the best, usually in between the two 22 lines.
Events International will also have package deals.
The ticket websites www.6nations.co.uk and www.no1eventsltd.co.uk have match tickets that start at around £85 for seats behind the posts. Tickets in either stand along either touchline will cost around £125-£175.
Keith Prowse have access to the only hospitality area within the stadium itself, and charge upwards of £450 for full hospitality and premium match ticket.

Eating and Drinking There are many food stands outside the ground situated mainly on the Viale Maresciallo Pilsudski and the Viale Tiziano.
Because there are no bars within the ground most fans tend to grab a bite to eat and a beer outside the ground before entering the stadium.
Eating and Drinking near the Stadium:
Via Arenula 20
Via Flaminia 231
Kilmoon Pub Di Andrea Filippi
Voa Giovanni Battista Tiepolo 2
Via Luigi Poletti 10
Accommodation There are almost 100,000 hotel beds in Rome. Add the fact that the football and rugby seasons dominate "low season", and it should be easy to find a place to stay.
However, as always, depending on where you want to stay and when will make a huge difference to the amount it will cost and the availability.
