Rome’s Stadio Olimpico truly is one of the most evocative and atmospheric arenas in which to watch a Six Nations rugby match.
Where better to spend a leisurely sporting weekend than Rome?
As well as a choice of premium seats for the match, you’ll have a choice of exquisite accommodation in the Eternal City, thanks to our exclusive access to the luxury Inspiring Travel Company portfolio.
Offering panoramic views over the city and free WiFi, the Parco dei Principi is located next to Rome’s Villa Borghese park. This hotel, designed by architect Giò Ponti, features luxurious rooms, a free spa and 2 pools. Rooms at the 5-star Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & SPA have relaxing seating areas and most offer views over the lush gardens of Villa Borghese and the Dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. The Pauline Borghese gourmet restaurant overlooks the summer pool and garden and features a terrace open in summer. The restaurant serves modern Italian cuisine and guests can also enjoy snacks at the poolside bar, or try a cocktail in La Pomme piano bar.
Your hospitality offers a terrace overlooking the pitch where your welcome drink can be enjoyed before your pre-match three-course meal. Then you can take your seat in the Tribuna Monte Mario to watch the match.
There is plenty to see in Rome before and after the game. Indeed the relics of over two thousand years of habitation packed into this sprawling urban area means it is one of the most historical cities in the world.
For the visitor, the city's classical features - most notably the Coliseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill - cannot be missed.
Then there are the early Christian basilicas, Romanesque churches, Renaissance palaces and the fountains and churches of the Baroque period. Trajan's column and Michelangelo's Piazza on Capitoline Hill have been totally transformed - pure magic when lit up at night!
For a little shopping therapy, the big names are clustered on and around two parallel streets at the base of the Spanish steps, via Condotti and via Borgognona. For something a little different, head for Volpetti, a delightful deli on via Marmorata with fresh Parmesan, Mozzarella di bufala and Formaggio di fossa, all weighed, sliced and packaged with typical Italian panache.
Spectate guests also benefit from our specialist concierge service, so we can create the perfect Roman holiday for you. Our Italy Travel Specialists will help you make the most of your time in the city; we’ll show you all our insider knowledge and hidden gems – like the haven Hotel de Russie, where we’ll arrange for you to dine 'al fresco' on the hidden outdoor terrace, away from the bustle of the city.
