What better way to see the Eternal City than a visit to the Derby Della Capitale?

Rome has inspired and intrigued visitors for millennia.  With breathtaking buildings and iconic sights around every corner. For over 2000 years, this city has seen epic fights and struggles for power. And although the fighting days of the gladiators at the Colosseum are gone – The Derby Della Capitale provides a spectacle worthy of this epic city.

The derby between Roma and Lazio is the fiercest rivalry in Italy. In fact, it’s probably the most notorious in Europe’s top five leagues.The rivalry goes back to 1927, when three clubs joined forces to form AS Roma. When Lazio refused to join the city alliance, an eternal rivalry was born. And these two teams have been fighting it out ever since. This is only intensified by the fact these two clubs share a stadium.

And on derby day, the Stadio Olimpico descends into mayhem as the two curvas hurl everything at each other. With a ridiculous amount of flags and tifo – and the ever-present threat of things spilling over.

As European derbies go, this really is a firecracker. And you’ll experience it the local way with Homefans. Your trip to Rome will be led by two passionate Roma fans. Who’ll take you to the best local spots and let you experience the Derby Della Capitale between AS Roma v SS Lazio through local eyes.  Plus you will share the whole experience with a small group of like-minded football fans.

You’ll eat the best pre-match food and drink with the Roma fans before the game. All before witnessing the battle for supremacy in the Eternal City first hand at the Olimpico.

Your 3 day tour includes accommodation, match tickets, dinner and Rome sightseeing. All in all, you’ll see exactly why this derby is on the bucket list of so many football fans worldwide.

Book with total flexibility and security.

FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

 

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.

Roma Roma Romaaa!

What’s not to love about Rome? Add in football, great food, and new friends and you’re guaranteed to have the perfect trip. I traveled alone to the derby in January 2020, but I spent the weekend in great company! Francesca and Matteo were amazing hosts, so knowledgeable and friendly. We visited a local restaurant that was off the beaten path, filled with vintage Roma kits and posters. Not only did we see an epic derby, we covered a lot of the major sights in Rome! Bonus points for a gelato pit stop while en route to the stadium. Fantastic weekend!

Derby Della Capitale at its best!

I went to Rome last February and instantly fell in love with the city and the connection with football. Francesca and Matteo were very welcoming and knowledgeable about all things Roma. The dinner at the restaurant with all AS Roma memorabilia was amazing. Our walks around the city mixing sightseeing and football were great! And the Olimpico! An amazing experience overall!
