“MANDATORY FOR FOOTBALL FANS”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Located in beautiful park, this classic, yet modern stadium is one of the "meccas" of football. My sons and I watched the match Roma X Internazionale on Mar 1.
You get there 15 mins prior to the game, there's no trouble to get in, seat and enjoy "the opera".
Safe place, respectful audience.
Bad remark: public transportation is poor and there's no taxis around, especially in the evening, so pls make sure to book some taxi to pick you up after the match (it seems to be a trademark at Europe's major stadiums).

“One stadium and two teams...what a atmosphere when the stadium is full..”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

The Olympic Stadium of Rome in this great arena to play using the two city teams, Roma and Lazio.
The stadium is beautiful outside but what I prefer is the area around it, a sports venue with pool, statues and so much to athletics in general.
The interior of the stadium is not that great, I've seen a lot a long time ago and because of the athletics track around the field of view of the game is almost reduced short, you can not see the game well.
All in all, getting inside and see all those people in approximately 50,000 full stadium makes a nice effect.

“Confusing Stadium - Public Transport access is poor”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Was here for the Scotland v Italy rugby game. This is a nice stadium, however there are a few annoyances. Firstly the seat numbers on the tickets were a little confusing not helped by the Scottish Rugby Union providing us with two tickets that were not together, literally one in the South and the other in the North! - Well done the Scottish Rugby Union, little wonder we don't do too well on the pitch. Oh I forgot to mention that the seat and row numbers were consecutive, but this is useless when they are not in the same block! Fortunately a fellow countryman had a spare seat in the vicinity!

The other issue is public transport to get you back to town, the Stadium is some distance out. There is no metro close by and there were no additional buses to cope with the crowds. The roads outside the ground are very congested which causes problems for buses getting there and away. Your best bet is a taxi ... and there appear to be many of them floating around comfortable with taking you back in to town but not anywhere else.

“Nice stadium”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Came here for Scotland v. Italy rugby game. Our seats were quite high and could see everything, but the stadium was nice. Had enough room. Need to request toilet seats in the ladies room. That would facilitate more women drinking beer. The after party was lively and had food and drink.

“AS Roma v SS Lazio - What an experience!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

I took my three teenage kids to the AS Roma v SS Lazio game on 2/9/14. What an experience! I was a little worried about taking the kids considering all that I had heard about the rowdiness of the fans. But we had an awesome (and safe) experience and would definitely do it again.
Here's a summary of our experience...hopefully it will help those who are experiencing soccer in Rome for the first time. Please feel free to contribute!

Find a Game: Check www.asroma.it or www.sslazio.it for schedule

Buy Tickets: We found that purchasing tickets was a different experience than in the states. Online sales didn't come available until only a few days before the game, although I found some third party sites that were VERY expensive...~200+ Euros per ticket. We ended up buying them at the AS Roma store in Roma (Piazza Colonna 360) 3 days before the game. There were plenty of tickets available. We bought the cheapest tickets at 30 Euro each. Next tier up was 45 Euro.
Where to sit: The stadium is segregated into four+ sections. The hard-core fans sit in Curva Sud (AS Roma) and Curva Nord (SS Lazio). Our 30 Euro tickets were in Curva Sud.
How to get to the Stadium: We walked to the stadium from the Ottaviano metro stop. It's a 2.2 mile, 45 minute walk through quiet residential areas. VERY EASY to navigate, in fact there are no turns at all, although the street changes names three times. We arrived about fine minutes late and the streets were so quiet we thought the game time had changed (which happens on occasion).

Entering the stadium: The stadium's sections are segregated inside, so you have to enter through the entrance printed on your ticket. Watch out for the turnstiles! The turnstiles are unmanned, and you have to scan the barcode to activate it. I had a guy try to jump in the turnstile with me which ended badly for him when his head got caught in between the bars!

Seating: Even though we had assigned seats in Curva Sud, it was basically general admission and people were standing tightly behind the goal. We moved to the outside edges of the section where there was enough room to sit.

The Game: What fun! Read some of the other posts for description of the experience. Like no other! Fortunately, there were no incidents of unruly conduct.
Leaving the stadium: There was a big rush leaving the stadium and we didn't want to get caught up in it. We waited about 15 minutes for everything to clear out and had an uneventful walk home.

Would definitely do it again!
