An Italian football match is an experience not to be missed for the quality of the play and the fun atmosphere. Rome has two teams, AS Roma and SS Lazio, and they take it in turns to play at the Stadio Olimpico on a Sunday afternoon at 3pm (unless they are playing the following week in either the Champions League or Uefa Cup in which case their league matches may be brought forward a day to the Saturday ) in the Campionato Italiano (Italian championship league or Serie A as it is more commonly known seats can be scarce, so get tickets in advance from the stadium. The Olympic Stadium is one of the most intimidating stadiums in Italy.
Did you Know? The stadium capacity is 85000 all seated.
