Rugby: Rome's Capitoline Museums free for Six Nations ticket holders

Guinness Six Nations Rugby returns to Rome.

Rome's Capitoline Museums will offer free admission to Six Nations Rugby ticket holders on the weekends that the two Italy games in the 2024 tournament are being played in the capital.

The offer grants free entry to two people for each ticket holder, with rugby fans entering the Capitoline Museums for free simply by showing their Six Nations tickets.

The 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.

The Capitoline Museums offer is available to Six Nations ticket holders from 2-4 February and from 8-10 March.

A jewel in the crown of Rome's municipal museum network, the Capitoline Museums house one of Italy's finest collections of classical sculpture as well as paintings by masters including Caravaggio.

Italy will play two home games in the 2024 edition of the annual Six Nations rugby union championship which kicks off on 3 February and end on 16 March.

The Azzurri will face England on 2 February and Scotland on 9 March, with both matches being played in Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

Italy will also play three away games, against defending champions Ireland in Dublin on 11 February, France in Lille on 25 February and Wales in Cardiff on 16 March.

For full details about the Six Nations matches in Rome, see the Federazione Italiana Rugby website.
