Best pubs in Rome to watch Six Nations rugby

Where to watch Six Nations 2023 rugby matches in Rome.

Italy's national rugby team will play three home games in this year's Six Nations rugby union championship which kicks off on 4 February and ends on 18 March.

The Azzurri will face defending champions France on 5 February, followed by Ireland on 25 February and Wales on 11 March, with all three matches being played in Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

As rugby increases its audience among Italians each year there is increased demand to watch the games in bars and pubs in Rome, with a growing number of Italians joining foreigners to watch the annual rugby union championship which is contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

Here are some of the best bars in the city to watch the Six Nations matches.

For the biggest screens, party atmosphere and commentary in English, it would be hard to beat Scholars Lounge - the largest Irish pub in the capital and winner of the world's Irish Pub of the Year in 2017.

Italian rugby fans cram into the rugby-mad The Shamrock or Camden Town - two Irish pubs on either side of the Colosseum - with a lively atmosphere guaranteed in both places.

Fiddler’s Elbow, the Druid’s Den - Rome's oldest and third-oldest Irish pub respectively - also screen the games to their customers who are generally a mix of Italian and foreign.

Finnegans, in the heart of the Monti quarter, also screens the Six Nations and attracts a large English-speaking crowd, mainly from the UK and Ireland.
