Where to watch Six Nations 2024 rugby matches in Rome.

Italy will play two home games in the 2024 edition of the Six Nations rugby union championship – against England on 3 February and Scotland on 9 March – with both matches being played in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.

As rugby increases its audience among Italians there is greater demand to watch the games in bars in Rome, with a growing number of Italians joining foreigners to watch the annual rugby union championship contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

Here are some of the best pubs in Rome to watch the Six Nations matches.

For the biggest screens, party atmosphere and commentary in English, it would be hard to beat Scholars Lounge just off the central Piazza Venezia – Rome’s largest Irish pub and past winner of the world’s Irish Pub of the Year.

Italian rugby fans cram into the rugby-mad The Shamrock or Camden Town – two Irish pubs on opposite sides of the Colosseum – with a lively atmosphere guaranteed in both places.

The Fiddler’s Elbow and the Druid’s Den – Rome’s oldest and third-oldest Irish pub respectively – screen the games to their customers who are generally a mix of Italian and foreign.

Finnegans, in the heart of the Monti quarter, also screens the Six Nations and attracts a large English-speaking crowd, mainly from the UK and Ireland.

Other popular pubs showing the rugby games include the Abbey Theatre near Piazza Navona, The Highlander in the historic centre, and The Nag’s Head near Piazza Venezia.
