In Rome for the Six Nations Championship? Do what Handshake does

Author: Francesco Iacorossi

For the seventh year in a row, Rome’s public transport operator (Roma Servizi per Mobilità) is providing rugby fans travelling to the Italian capital for the Six Nations Championship with advice on how to reach the city’s Olympic Stadium sustainably.

The short guide gives information on how to best travel to the matches on public transport or by cycling. It also advises on taking bikes on Rome’s metro and gives details on taxi services and accessibility for those with reduced mobility.  

Cyclists can secure their bikes at new bike parking facilities located near the stadium. These can be easily accessible via the cycle path shown on the map here.

New for 2020 is the collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Jump, the shared bike service provided by Uber. These build on Rome’s existing partnerships with FIAB (the Italian Environment and Cycling Federation), Healthy Stadia and BYCS, alongside its work in CIVITAS Handshake.

More broadly, such actions forms part of the city’s efforts to improve the quality of life for residents and experience for visitors by making sustainable travel easier.
