A guided tour of Stadio Olimpico (Italy) has begun from November 15th. This is an opportunity for which fans were waiting with bated breath.

The ‘AS Roma’ stated that from November 15th, the world-renowned stadium opened its doors to allow fans to browse its hallowed corridors, visiting everything from the changing rooms to the trophy hall and the Walk of Legends that immortalizes some of the greats – from football, sport and music – to have graced the venue.

The Stadio Olimpico is the largest sports facility in Rome, Italy, seating over 70,000 spectators. It is located within the Foro Italico sports complex, North of the City. The structure is owned by the Italian National Olympic Committee and it is used primarily for association football.

AS Roma is an Italian professional football club based in Rome (Italy). Founded by a merger in 1927, Roma has participated in the top-tier of Italian football for all of their existence except for the 1951-1952 seasons. The Stadio Olimpico serves as their home facility.

The ‘AS Roma’ further stated that the tour is the result of collaboration between Serie A clubs AS Roma, SS Lazio and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) (governing body of football in Italy). The Stadio Olimpico also serves as the digs of SS Lazio.

Tours are being offered in both English and Italian languages.

The new opening was officially inaugurated on November 11th, as representatives from all three parties involved embarked on the first version of the tour.

They were guided through the stadium and its glorious past – including the 1960 Olympic Games, the Athletics World Championships in 1974 and 1987 and the 1990 FIFA World Cup™.

Serie A titles, other sporting events and spectacular musical performances are also recognized as part of the tour – along with a nod to the upcoming 2024 European Athletics Championships.

The European Athletics has awarded the 2024 European Championships to Rome. The capital of Italy will therefore once again host the greatest continental athletics event in the world, 50 years after the 1974 edition. It will also be the third time hosting for Italy, 90 years after the inaugural event in Turin (Italy) in 1934.

From pitchside to the media zone and the stands themselves, the tour covers all parts of the ground – and finishes at the Stadium Store, where attendees can purchase a memory of the experience.
