The Eternal City. Rome is one of a handful of cities which can occupy the minds of any tourist. A spectacular venue & ideal for a Rugby Tour. Why not tie in a Six Nations match in the Springtime, surely the best excuse to visit the Italian Capital.
Few cities offer the same ability to knock you off your stride as the eternal city of Rome. The city leaves you breathless. A Six Nations weekend in Rome is without comparison. The climate, the welcome, the rugby is all magnificent. If you haven't been here, you should, quickly!
The historical and religious powerhouse is a fantastic city to visit on tour. Our home in the city is at Capitolina Rugby, one of the biggest names in Italian Club Rugby. Their exceptional facilities include an on-site restaurant which is worth the visit alone.
Sightsee until you drop, but before you do, head to Gladiator School, visit the beach at Ostia, race on a top-class Go-Kart track, visit the Italian Rugby Museum & catch a Six Nations match at the Stadio Olimpico.
