Guinness Six Nations Rugby returns to Rome.
Rome's Capitoline Museums will offer free admission to Six Nations Rugby ticket holders during the weekends that the three Italy games in the 2023 tournament are being played in the capital.
The offer grants free admission to two people for each ticket holder, with rugby fans entering the Capitoline Museums for free simply by showing their Six Nations tickets.
The "Rugby and Culture" initiative is the result of a collaboration between the city and Italy's rugby federation, in an effort to promote Rome's rich cultural heritage to visiting rugby fans.
A febbraio e marzo il #SeiNazioni di #rugby allo stadio Olimpico. L'Italia sfiderà Francia, Irlanda e Galles.
Con i biglietti delle gare sarà possibile accedere gratuitamente ai Musei Capitolini.
