The 'Curva Sud' at the Roma - Lazio Derby,
Stadio Olimpico - an amazing sight.

Romans are passionate about their football - almost as passionate as we are! In Italian culture, allegiance to your team comes second only to allegiance to your family.

So if you have soccer fans in the family and you're planning a trip to Italy for kids or looking for things to do in Rome, go to one of the Italian shops selling everything and anything related to the Roman teams currently in the Serie 'A' of the Italian football league: Roma (our second team after Everton F.C.!) and Lazio.

Or even better - bring Italian football truly alive and go to a match - it's a brilliant experience.

Italian shops : buy match tickets at the Stadio Olimpico

Perhaps not exactly one of the best known shops in Rome, although the two home sides have souvenir stores here.

Passions run high at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Stadio Olimpico is the football stadium shared by Rome's two Italian football league (Serie 'A') teams, A.S. Roma and S.S. Lazio.

For us it's one of the main Rome tourist attractions.  It's an amazing place just to see, and if you can get tickets for a local Roma - Lazio derby, so much the better - it's one of our favourite things to do in Rome.

Don't worry too much about reports of violence, they're grossly over-exaggerated and we have never had a problem. Just turn up and expect to enjoy the match - no trip to Italy for kids is complete without it!

The soccer season in Italy starts in the late summer or early autumn and goes through to late spring. You can reserve seats in advance on internet ticket sites but you'll pay anything up to €200. 

If you're in Rome near the time of the matches you'll be able to buy tickets at the Stadio for a maximum of around €100 for the big games and as little as €10 for the less popular seats, from any of a number of  shops in Italy, or from approved ticket vendors in Rome itself.

For sell-out matches there will always be ticket touts by the tram stop in the Piazza Mancini but beware of these - it's illegal, and they may be fake.

See the teams' own sites below for a list of approved shops in Rome selling football tickets.

Italian shops : the A.S. Roma store

The official Roma logo should be on all official purchases.

Wandering round markets and the Italian shops in Rome for kids you'll see soccer shirts almost everywhere, but be aware that most are copies.   Make sure your purchases have this official Roma logo.

If you want official Roma team wear, the A.S. Roma shop is at Piazza Colonna 360, near the Pantheon at the bottom of the Via del Corso. 

It sells everything from full kits, scarves and hats to lingerie, baby bottles, bags, wallets and pennants - anything and everything Roma, all of course emblazoned with the very recognisable red and yellow Roma logo.

This is a good place for soccer fans to get some souvenirs to take home; the goods cost anything from a few Euros to hundreds.  You can also buy tickets for home games here.

Open between 10 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. on a Sunday.
