General Information

The Stadio Olimpico is a multi-purpose stadium in the Italian capital city, Rome. The stadium was opened in 1937 and its main use is for football, with Roma and Lazio playing their home games at the stadium. The Stadium has a capacity of 70,634.

The stadium was originally built at the hands of Turinese engineer Angelo Frisa and architect Enrico Del Debbio in the early 20th Century. The stadium was renovated in 1953 and then hosted the Olympics in 1960 before being renovated again in 1990, in which a roof was added and a restructuring of the stands. The stadium most recently had a renovation in 2008, with work to the corporate parts, dressing rooms and seating; this was done so that the stadium could host the Champions League Final in 2009. The stadium is a one-tiered oval shape and has fantastic views from any area of the ground. The stadium hosts the Italian national sides of both football and rugby, it also hosts annual summer concerts.

Getting there

The stadium is situated just north of the city centre and is accessible by bus, either the number 32 and 280 buses are the best options.

Opening Times and Admission

Lazio and Roma play at the stadium a combined minimum of 38 games a year, so plenty of options exist to attend an event at the stadium; tickets can be bought in the city or at the stadium's ticket office or relative club shops. Unfortunately, the stadium does not currently operate a tour.

Irish Rugby

Rated:

Been to watch the rugby on a couple of occasions with Ireland. Decent atmospheric ground with a good view from any location, just a shame about the distance from seat to pitch with the running track.

Top arena...

Rated:

Thia place is a great arena to attend an event, went for a football match and had a walk around there isnt a bad view within the stadium. The only gripes are probably the running track seperates the crowd from the fans and that the stadium is a bit out of the city centre but plenty of buses run often to that area. The statues around the edges of the stadium were a surprise and add a roman feel to the stadium.
