Stadio Olimpico

Catching a game at Rome's Stadio Olimpico is definitely a way to feel a little bit more Roman than the average tourist. Rome has two teams, Roma and Lazio, that compete in Italy's series A, so choose wisely because who you choose will definitely define you, and where you need to sit in the stadium. And stadium theatrics—the fans' and the players'—make for some unforgettable live drama. All games are heart-poundingly critical, but nothing causes more heartache (and often times physical strife) than the derby, the twice-yearly match up between Roma and Lazio.
