We are travelling to Rome for the 6 nations game in February, and hoping to find out where England fans tend to hang out before and after the game.

Any suggestions and recommendations would be welcome, it’s our first time in Italy so we are completely new to the city!

Hi Jamie just been in contact with a friend in Rome and he says this,..............


England fans are....everywhere in Rome!

There is going to be an hospitality village close to the stadium, and some pubs close to the stadium are often crowded.

Later I'll check some addresses for you


so will keep you updated cheers Kath

We're going! Sounds like the hospitality village may be a good bet.

Many thanks for the info.

Right Paolo has got back to me gain on this, so here is further info.,


Hi kath...for fans reaching Rome here there are some tips:

I do hope they can prove to be useful...of course here I am if needed!

To reach the Olimpico Stadium fans have many different choices.

The easiest using the public transportation ( slow and crowded usually ) is tram no. 2. It leaves from the PIazzale Flaminio, in the city centre (across the PIazza del Popolo, 5 minutes walking distance from the Spanish Steps to give you an idea) and it takes 10 minutes approx to reach the area near the stadium. From its terminus they simply have to cross the Duca d’Aosta bridge and there they are.

Another choice it may be bus no. 910 leaving from the Termini railway station. It takes more or less 30/40 minutes from there and if the opt for this solution the terminus is right on the other bank of the river from the stadium.

As for the pub best solution should be The Kilmoon at the address 2, Via Tiepolo ( along the line of both the bus and the tram, 15 minutes walking from the stadium...

right outside the venue there should be ( but I could still not find any news about it) a “village” for supporters where to stop and have a drink before and after the match.

I’ll try to find some more news about this too...

just one final recommendation: everywhere - and mainly on crowded areas - always mind the pickpockets!

And have fun!

That's good list Kath. Our group has a few days to look around (we're off early tomorrow AM)

I know Irish bars on the continent are generally pretty rubbish but I've heard good things about the Scholars Lounge. It's a sports bar and will be showing the other 2 6N games on Sat. Apparently, it's where the Swiss Guard hang out.

Hi there,
We have read that the Abbey Theatre is also really good and also runs transport to and from the stadium! We’re staying quite close to the ground so might not need that, but if we venture that way we will call in.

Hoping to go and watch the Saturday games at Four Green Fields or The Highlander.

Have a great time wherever you go!

Excited to get there now!! 😆😆
