Where to watch the Six Nations in Rome

4 Feb-18 March. Wanted in Rome’s guide to the best places to watch the Six Nations rugby matches.

Wanted in Rome highlights some of the best bars in the city to watch the upcoming Six Nations annual rugby union championship which is contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

During the 18th edition of the annual Six Nations rugby union championship — which kicks off on 4 February and finishes on 18 March — Italy will face three squads at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico: Wales (5 Feb), Ireland (11 Feb), and France (11 March). 

The Azzurri will be keen to pass on the dreaded "wooden spoon", for coming bottom of the table last year, while England go into the tournament as defending champions.

The biggest screens are 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.
