Multi-centre Vacations based around the 6 Nations

The 6 Nations Rugby tournament is one of the most highly anticipated sporting events in the rugby calendar, when England, Scotland, France, Wales, Ireland and Italy battle it out on the pitch to be crowned champions.

However, while some will be looking to travel to Rome for a long weekend centred around the match, others may prefer to stay a little longer in Rome or enjoy other iconic cities in Italy. So, here is our guide to the best Italy multi-centres based around the 6 Nations in Rome.

 

Rome and Sorrento

After enjoying the city sights in Rome and, of course, the 6 Nations rugby match at Stadio Olimpico, why not spend a few days relaxing on the south coast in the glorious city of Sorrento? Sorrento is a popular coastal town, not far from Naples, and it is famous for its relaxed atmosphere, boutique shops, stunning sea views and fragrant lemon groves, the lemons of which are used to make limoncello. From Sorrento you can easily reach the island of Capri, which has sandy beaches, and there is also the ancient lost city of Pompeii close by, which gives visitors a fascinating glimpse back in time. You can also explore Mount Vesuvius, the Amalfi Coast and Ischia – all from your base in Sorrento!

 

Rome, Florence and Venice

For something a little more all-encompassing, you could enjoy the cities of Florence and Venice – two icons of Italy – after you have spent a weekend at the 6 Nations in Rome. Florence brings artistic flair and you can visit the Accademia Gallery while in the city to see Leonardo da Vinci’s statue of David or perhaps spend an afternoon discovering the masterpieces on display at the Uffizi Gallery. There are also plenty of architectural treasures to enjoy, including the Cathedral and Ponte Vecchio. Meanwhile, Venice brings magical charm through its intricate network of canals and its undeniably romantic vibe. Here you could enjoy a gondola tour down the Grand Canal or perhaps visit the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Combining the 6 Nations in Rome with Florence and Venice would be a great choice for a romantic break for couples.

 

Rome and Milan

If you want to experience city chic and vibrancy, and perhaps a little shopping, after your 6 Nations trip in Rome, then consider combining Rome with Milan. Milan is Italy’s fashion capital and boasts many designer shops, as well as shopping malls and arcades lined with boutique stores. You could also hop on the CitySightseeing open-top tour bus, which takes you to the San Siro football stadium on the outskirts of the city centre, as well as La Scala Opera House and the gothic Cathedral.
