Sports fans will want to book their accommodation in Rome right away, since the Diamond League Athletics - Golden Gala is just around the corner.

The evening of top class athletics takes place on June 10th at the Stadio Olimpico and the organisers have pointed out that it will be an extra special edition of the event, as it is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Some people may remember that triple jump legend Jonathan Edwards broke the world record in a Diamond League event in 1998, when he leapt a stunning 17.6 metres.

Attendees can expect to see a wide variety of sports such as the high jump, pole vault and discus throw during the show.

The Stadio Olimpico provides an impressive setting for the occasion, having staged several prestigious sporting events such as the 1990 World Cup and the 1960 Olympic Games - for which the venue was built.

"30 years of history for the athletics meeting of the Eternal City. Rome and the Golden Gala: a passion lit up at the Olympic Stadium in 1980 and today, after three decades, still burning," noted the organisers.

Tickets for the Golden Gala range from €5 (£4.30) up to €25 and tickets can be bought online, with the evening kicking off at 19:30 (local time).

If you're heading to the Diamond League Athletics - Golden Gala this year, we strongly advise that you book your hotel Roma as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
