The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
You can marvel at the grandeur of The Colosseum and The Vatican, and the Eternal City's other seemingly endless array of magnificent monuments, or sample the atmosphere of the Stadio Olimpico for the 2012 RBS 6 Nations as the Stadio Flaminio is refurbished.
Warm spring sunshine is another bonus when you get to Rome, both for sightseeing and for rugby-watching.
Not that other fans must miss out. There's more than enough to do in Rome, too, if you're neutral.
In Rome, it's not smoky and over-crowded pubs that you have to squeeze into out of the cold and the rain... it's more often than not a sun-dappled terrace overlooking a wide and beautiful square.
