How to get to Rome’s Stadio Olimpico

The Stadio Olimpico in Rome is the city’s largest sports complex and plays host to major sporting events, including the 6 Nations rugby matches. It is also the home stadium of Serie A clubs Lazio and Roma, and it has a running track for athletics events. Over the years, it has hosted a number of important sporting events, including the 6 Nations Rugby, World Cup football matches, Champions League finals, and it is set to host some of the Euro 2020 matches too.

The stadium sits to the north of Rome and can be easily reached on foot from Vatican City, which makes for quite a nice 4 km walk along the river. Alternatively, if you’re staying closer to the train station (the Termini area of Rome), it is best to catch the Metro, which is Italy's version of the London Underground. Here are some directions that you may find helpful:

  • From Termini, take Metro Line A (the orange one) in the direction of Ottaviano and get off at Flaminio. Then, take tram route 2 from Piazzale Flaminio to Piazza Mancini (the last stop on the line), and from Piazza Mancini, walk towards the river and cross the bridge at Ponte Duca d'Aosta to get to the stadium.
  • Alternatively, from Termini, take Metro Line A (the orange one) in the direction of Battistini and get off at Ottaviano. Then, take bus route 32 to Piazzale della Farnesina, from where you can walk to the stadium.

In general, we don't recommend trying to take a taxi to the stadium as the traffic around the stadium gets very busy on match days and we certainly wouldn't want you to miss the match! There is also a great atmosphere on the route from central Rome to the stadium on match days, making it a really enjoyable experience. There’s also a collection of bars located across Ponte Milvio, which is the next bridge along from the one to the stadium, and there are also Irish pubs and sports bars in the city centre close to the Metro lines, which are very convenient for match day (Flann O’Brien’s and Shamrock Irish Pub tend to be favourites).

However, if you would prefer not to walk far or are unable to do so, then there are buses, such as route 910, that go from the Termini area in Rome to close to Stadio Olimpico - we recommend that you ask your hotel receptionist for the best line to take and for timetables as they change regularly.
