The Rugby Groud Guide

Travel and the Stadium

 

How to get to the city: 


Air: The two main airports that service Rome are Leonardo da Vinci at Fiumiccino , 22 miles to the south-west, and Ciampino, 13 miles to the south-east.

The flight to Rome can take up to three hours depending on where you fly from in the U.K.

 

Rail: There are two services from Fiumicino airport into central Rome:

The direct Leonardo Express starts at 6.20am and runs to Rome's main transport hub-the Stazioni Termini -every 30 minutes until 11.30pm.

The metropolitan train, the FM1, runs between Fiumicino and Orte. Trains go every 15 minutes from 5.50am until 11.27pm.

Terravision runs buses from Ciampino to the Stazione Termini. Buses are to be found outside the main exit to the arrivals hall by the taxi rank.

               

How to reach the Stadium: The best way of getting to the Stadio Olimpico from the centre of Rome is by public transport. Take the              Metro to Flaminio (Line A) next to the Spanish Steps. Switch to tram No 2, which goes to the Piazza       Mancini.

When you get off the tram, cross the tarmac and head for the left corner. Keep the fountains on your left, and walk up to the river. Cross the busy riverside road and ahead you'll see the stadium just across the bridge and past Mussolini's obelisk.

               

Ground Information.

The stadium’s stands along the touchlines are the Monte Mario and Tribuna Tevere.

Behind the posts are the Curva Nord and Curva Sud,where the bends of the running track mean that supporters are far from the pitch. The Curva Sud is the larger of the two, whilst three corners of the ground are known as the Distini.

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
