Is 2020 going to be the year when Scotland restores its national pride in the game of rugby and reverses the series of defeats it suffered during the 2017 6 Nations tournament?
Scotland finished in fourth place in a closely contested table by the end of the games, but not before a humiliating drubbing by England of 61 points to 21 on the 11th of March. But perhaps that needs to be set against the thrashing Scotland gave Italy in the 29 points to 0 at Murrayfield a week later.
It may be too early to call the results of Italy v Scotland 2020, but there are clearly scores to be settled, and a contest bound to thrill and excite any Scottish supporter.
Whatever the outcome, it’s certainly not too early to start planning your trip to watch Italy host Scotland in the 2020 6 Nations tournament – and to save money on that outing.
You save money buying everything you need – flights, transfers, accommodation, and tickets for the match – in a single Italy v Scotland 2020 package.
The alternative is to make your own way to Rome, find a somewhere to stay and buy tickets from any one of a number of outlets.
Not only are you likely to pay more by making separate arrangements in that way, you have the hassle of organising everything, hoping that the hotel is conveniently located, and trusting that the tickets you bought are from an official source and not from a tout or part of a scam.
- Group discounts
If you are travelling with your mates, don’t forget to ask about discounts for group travel – and the minimum number of people needed to qualify for any such discount.
To get maximum benefit from travelling as a group, find out whether your booking:
- guarantees that your tickets for the game keep you all in the same block;
- ensures that you travel together (by chartered flights, if necessary);
- offers an airport coach or train transfer as a group to and from central Rome; and
- provides the same group facilities once you get to your accommodation.
You might even find group discounts for other ways of enjoying yourselves during any sightseeing tours you arrange on the days before or after the match.
- An away game and a holiday
You might want to investigate the possibilities of a package for Italy v Scotland 2020 that offers you two cut-price deals for the cost of one – not only the chance to see your favourite rugby team in action but also enjoy a weekend break in one of Europe’s most attractive and fascinating cities, Rome.
You’ve probably seen it in the pictures but now is your opportunity to get up close and personal with the mighty Colloseum in the very heart of the city – to name just one of the countless landmarks scattered across the whole of Rome.
- An extended holiday
Why fly twice when you only need to travel once?
You’ve saved money by getting to the match in Rome, so why not make a proper holiday of it by extending your stay in Italy and organising a tailor-made multi-centre holiday that lets you experience some other parts of the country?
There are specialist travel companies with the expertise and experience of doing just that.

Some things money simply can’t buy.
