One of the things that you have to do during your time in Rome is going to see a game at the Stadio Olimpico. It is only a short bus ride away from campus and some of the biggest names in soccer go to compete there.
Regardless of whether or not you are a soccer fan, this is an experience you cannot miss. The stadium is home to AC Roma and to all of its passionate fans, which are half of the reason of why you should go.
I went to the Roma vs Milan game and things got pretty intense. Fans from both sides really get into the game and it is a true spectacle to see them yell things at each other as well as their reactions when a goal is scored.
Just to give an idea as to how heated things can get, there is a plastic barrier that separated the fans from both teams, so as long as you are on the right side, you are good.
