Sports fans have only a few weeks to prepare for the beginning of this year's RBS Six Nations Rugby Championship, which kicks off in February.

Half a dozen of Europe's top teams will be competing for the title - as well as the bragging rights that go along with it - in the contest, which starts on Saturday February 7th with England vs Italy at Twickenham.

Ireland vs France will take place at Croke Park on the same day, followed by Scotland vs Wales on Sunday February 8th at Murrayfield.

Other venues set to see action over the course of the tournament include the Stade de France, the Millennium Stadium and the 24,973-seater Stadio Flaminio, which is ideally located for people staying in Rome Hotels.

Current champions Wales are set to defend their title and coach Warren Gatland said the team is not intimidated by the pressure.

"We will accept the challenge of being favourites - it is a new experience for a lot of coaches, as well as players," he added.

Tickets for the matches are controlled by the host union of each contest and the event organisers advise fans only purchase tickets from an official source to ensure it is genuine.

Sunday 15th February is the first game at the Stadio Flaminio and will be between Italy and Ireland. The next fixture in Italy is on Saturday 14th March, where the hosts (Italy) will entertain reigning champions Wales. Rugby fans and travelling supporters will be delighted to know that have handpicked some great deals to be had whilst staying over in the Italian capital.

Three star accommodation can be found at numerous hotels but in particular the Fellini Inn Roma, Comfort Inn Bolivar and the Hotel Nerva Colosseo are certain favourites. Guests in search of a standard double or twin room inclusive of breakfast can be booked from £100 at the Fellini Inn Roma.

The Morgana Hotel is a superior four star rated hotel, located in the heart of historical Rome. Here double rooms are readily available from £102 – be sure to book fast due to the high demand for rooms.
