Thinking about the rugby in Italy next year?

The Six Nations is held every year, and if you are a rugby fan, you will probably already be thinking about the matches in 2015.

If you want to go on holiday to see the rugby, you could opt to go abroad to see one or two of the games. Games will be held in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy. If you like the idea of going to Italy, here's what you need to know to plan your trip.

Plan your dates

There will be three Six Nations rugby matches in Italy, all of which will be held in Rome. They will take place at the Stadio Olimpico, an impressive stadium with a 70,000 capacity, where Italy will take on Ireland, France and Wales.

The first of these will be held on February 7th, the second on March 15th and the third on March 21st.

This gives you two main options when planning your trip: either head out for the first game then return, or go in March and see both the second and third matches, which are only separated by a week.

How to arrange your trip

There is the easy way and the more complicated way when it comes to arranging your trip to Italy. To do it the more complicated way, book your flights, accommodation and everything else yourself, including the tickets for the matches.

To do it the easy way, book your whole trip in a package, which we can do for you here at Italy Multi Centre Holidays. We'll also sort out your tickets so that you can focus on enjoying yourself and looking forward to your trip rather than worrying about the details.

Why go to Italy?

There are many reasons why Italy is the perfect place for a rugby holiday. Firstly, you will find a passionate crowd at the matches. Although traditionally the weakest team in the tournament, Italy's team is getting better and they will put up a good fight, and the locals will really get behind them.

Then there is the fact that Italy is one of the most beautiful and exciting countries in Europe, and you will be travelling at the perfect time. The weather may not be hot like in the summer, but there are other benefits.

For example, because it is not the main tourist season, if you decide to do some sightseeing, which you really should, you will get to enjoy the sights without having to put up with large crowds.

Prices also tend to be lower at this time of year, so you may be able to enjoy a lower-priced holiday at the same time.

See more than Rome

The rugby matches will be held in Rome, but you can visit other places in Italy during your holiday. There are many options, and it would be a shame to miss out when there is so much to see.

Whether you want to travel to another city like Milan, Florence or Venice, explore the countryside of Tuscany, admire the beauty of the Amalfi Coast, or travel the country seeing historic sites and world-class art, try to take in more than one destination.

Wherever you decide to go, start planning your trip to Italy for the rugby next year and enjoy a fantastic holiday in this beautiful country.
