Was there for the All Blacks vs Italy match. Thought the pre game entertainment with mini rugby in the Olympic grounds was fabulous, good amount of food stands and drink stands. Thankfully the weather was great, as was the atmosphere and the Italians ever growing passion for rugby.
Once inside the stadium, it was great to be seated so close to the paddock (seats were actually quite comfortable and the pitch not steep), toilets were close by for the young and the old, and the food sellers were always around so that you didn't miss any of the match.
Bad luck Italy. Maybe next time.
The only issue with the whole day was trying to get away from the stadium (but this occurs anywhere that you find 60000 people) and back to central Rome. I'm sure that with a little bit of planning (on my part) it would have been easier, but we walked for 15 minutes, had a drink, then caught a cab!
Great experience, great atmosphere (and with every rugby international), family friendly!
