Stadio Olimpico in Rome
Stadio Olimpico Information
Directions: Stadio Olimpico is about 6km from the city center of Rome, located to the north of the city. Unless you’re staying close by, you won’t want to walk – it’d take you about an hour and a half to walk to the stadium from central Rome. Luckily, you can catch a bus or tram to the Stadio Olimpico from the city center. Buses 32 and 280 serve the stadium, as does tram 225.
Driving Directions to Stadio Olimpico di Torino: From Piazza Venezia in central Rome, head west on the Via del Plebiscito, which will curve slightly to the right and become Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. Turn right at the Piazza di Sant’Andrea delle Valle, follow the edge of the piazza as it curves to the left, and then turn right onto Corso del Rinaschimento. When the road comes to a T, turn left at Piazza delle 5 Lune and then, at the Y, turn right onto Via Giuseppe Zanardelli. When you reach the river, turn right on Lungotevere Marzio and continue on this road when it becomes Lungotevere in Augusta. Eventually you’ll have to turn right to get off this road and get onto Lungotevere Arnaldo da Brescia, which becomes Lungotevere delle Navi. You’ll cross the river at the Ponte del Risorgimento, and then turn right onto Lungotevere Guglielmo Oberdan, which becomes Lungotevere della Vittoria. This road eventually turns to the left away from the river, at which point you’ll turn right onto Lungotevere Maresciallo Cadorna, then left onto Via Roberto di Lavriano, and then right onto Viale dei Gladitori. When this road comes to an end, you’ll see the stadium in front of you.
