Football fans planning Rome tours in May will get the chance to see some world-class sporting entertainment as the 2008-09 Serie A season draws to a close.
The city’s two top-flight sides – Roma and Lazio – share the city’s Stadio Olimpico and both will be looking to pick up maximum points at home as they target a top-four finish.
Roma appear to have a fairly straightforward run-in, with all of the teams they will face in May currently in the bottom half of the table, starting with Chievo on May 3rd.
Francesco Totti and his team-mates will then line up against Catania on May 17th before playing their last game of the season against Torino, currently third from bottom and staring relegation in the face, on May 31st.
The fixture list has also smiled upon Lazio – they will play Udinese, currently 13th in Serie A, on May 10th before facing bottom-of-the-table Reggina on May 24th.
Rome’s Stadio Olimpico will then play host to two of the giants of European football when it serves as the venue for the 2009 Champions League final on May 27th.
