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.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks.
