From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Italy vs Ireland
16 March, 2013
Croke Park, 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.
