Stadio Olimpico is next to Vatican Rome Suite and it’s the main and largest sports facility of Rome.
It is located within the Foro Italico sports complex, north of the city.
The stadium was rebuilt for the 1990 FIFA World Cup, and hosted the final.
A UEFA category four stadium, it has also hosted four European Cup finals, the most recent being the 2009 UEFA Champions League Final. Outside football, the stadium is used by the Italian national rugby union team and is Italy’s national athletics stadium. It also occasionally hosts concerts and events of various kinds.
In its first stages, the Stadio Olimpico was called the Stadio dei Cipressi. It was designed and constructed within the larger project of the Foro Mussolini (Mussolini Forum), which was renamed Foro Italico after the war.
For the 1990 FIFA World Cup, for which it was the main stadium, the facility was the subject of an extensive enhancement.
