From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Italy vs Wales
23 February, 2013
Stadio Flaminio, Rome, Italy
On 23 February, the Italians will be preparing to meet their
Welsh rivals at Rome's own Stadio Flaminio..
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.
