Italy vs Ireland

08.03.14
Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland

Ireland travel to Italy for their last game of the 2013 RBS Six Nations Championship.

The Stadio Flaminio is the smallest of the international rugby stadia, with a crowd capacity of just 24,500. But it is a great place to watch rugby; the simple single-tier stadium has an intimate atmosphere and the tree-lined hills that surround it make a striking backdrop.

It is just a couple of miles north-west of the city, on the historic Via Flaminia. While you're in Rome why not visit the Colosseum, also the scene of many gladiatorial contests, with an impressive crowd capacity of over 50,000.

Italy will hope to avoid a replica of their 42-10 defeat to the Irish in the fixture in 2012.
