Rugby enthusiasts are being offered an unmissable deal for tickets for the 2024 Six Nations at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Discount voucher website Wowcher has announced a true bargain of a deal for rugby fans planning to travel to Italy for the Six Nations 2024 Championship matches. The deals site is offering both an accommodation stay and tickets for a live match from just £149.
This is a golden opportunity for aficionados to witness the crème de la crème of rugby nations, including England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales, vying for the championship title. The grand event, unfolding in February and March next year, promises high-octane rugby encounters in destinations such Paris and Edinburgh in addition to Rome.
Before snapping up the Rome deal, however, Scottish rugby fans should check the travel requirements for Italy to make sure they are eligible to visit. It’s important to remember that the ETIAS visa waiver for Italy will come into effect in 2024.
The ETIAS Italy requirements are a valid passport, a current email address, and a valid debit/credit card. It may also be necessary to have additional documents, such as proof of a return flight ticket and proof of financial means for the stay.
Fans who meet these requirements are advised to snap up the Wowcher deal as soon as possible. The considerable discount is expected to attract a great deal of interest and offers may run out soon.
Those who take advantage of the offer can choose from either 1, 2, or 3-night stay packages at 3 or 4-star hotels in Rome. These include:
Hotel San Marco
Hotel The Brand
Ibis Roma Fiera
Mercure Roma West
Villa San Lorenzo Maria Hotel
The one-night stay option starts from £149 per person for the England v Italy game on February 3. Most Scottish fans will want to choose a package for the Scotland v Italy game on March 9, which is available from £159 per person per night.
Furthermore, a two-person stay for the England match is available from £189, while a three-night stay in a three-star hotel will cost Scottish fans around £219. No matter which package they select, fans can save as much as 33% over booking tickets and accommodation separately.
The packages are available for selected nights in the period from February 1, 2024, until March 12, 2024. Although flights are not included in the offer, both Ryanair and easyJet offer a number of cheap flights to Rome from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Additionally, easyJet has recently announced that it’s upping the number of flights from Scotland to Rome in anticipation of the event. What’s more, fans can also search for flight deals when booking offers on Wowcher.
The stay in Rome promises much more than just a rugby match. It opens the door to a city steeped in history and unparalleled beauty.
Aside from the matches, fans can tour iconic landmarks such as the majestic Colosseum. Or the Vatican, a treasure trove of Renaissance wonders, including the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel.
Fans can also spend leisurely days indulging in Aperol Spritz in the city's picturesque piazzas. Or they can make a hopeful wish at the world-famous Trevi Fountain.
