  • Everyone knows that sports in Rome means soccer, ahem, CALCIO. Whether a fan of the giallo/rossi (Roma) or bianco/celeste (Lazio), the only place to watch a game is the Stadio Olimpico. Not up for a brisk afternoon of boys running around? Take a peak at the adjacent Foro Italico and the Stadio dei Marmi, a stadium built during Fascism to celebrate Rome's eternal reign in the Olympic games. Other great venues include Stadio Flaminio for Rugby and the Palolottamatica for basketball. Not to mention the beautiful and historic Piazza di Siena equestrian event in Villa Borghese every May. For those who want to do more than see, grab your gear and fight like a gladiator, run, hike or bike the city. But if your version of sporting event includes a cold beer, head to the Abbey Theatre which broadcasts all soccer games from all leagues, American sports like baseball, basketball and football, and anglo-favorite rugby.
