Guide to the best bars showing the Six Nations rugby matches in Rome.
With the Six Nations in full gear, here are some of the best bars in the city to watch the 2019 rugby union championship which is contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
During the 20th edition of the Six Nations — which kicks off on 1 February and finishes on 16 March — Italy will face three squads at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico: Wales on 9 February, followed by reigning Six Nations champions Ireland on 24 February, and France on 16 March.
Massive screens and commentary in English is guaranteed at Scholars Lounge; for lively atmosphere (particular for the Italian games) head to The Shamrock or Camden Town; while the city’s English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish and French rugby fans can be found mingling with Italian regulars at pubs such as the Fiddler’s Elbow, the Druid’s Den and Finnegans.
A new entry this year is Rome's newly-opened rugby bar UnoDue near Piazza Navona. Enjoy!
