Hi Sean

We are booked on the Frecciarossa train from Rome to Milan at 7:50 Friday morning 8th March, when there is a strike. Do you know if these trains are likely to run and, if not, can you offer any alternatives please as we see you are offering possible coaches to Pisa Airport.?
Many thanks for any advice.

Can he guarantee my bum won’t be sliced open by a moped riding ultra ? Or when it does happen at least have some butterfly strips on board the coach 👍🏻

Good Evening Seagulls

Sean here from City Light Tours Rome.

For years I’ve been organising a more relaxed way for away football fans coming to Italy for a good safe time while supporting their teams.

This is not my first rodeo and I’m not here only for money. European games can be quite overwhelming in foreign cities and an expensive 2/3 days with flights, hotels and match tickets - you should be able to relax and have a great time.

Over the years we’ve brought Man City, Liverpool, Leicester, Spurs and many other European teams to Italian stadiums on time - relaxed, and then a safe return home without any worry or hassle.

We’ll be arranging 2/3 private coaches to the Stadium on match day and a drop off in a large bar with music afterwards without any admission problems.

Anyone with any questions please feel free to ask me here or on watsapp

Even if you’ve no interest in our buses you are still most welcome to ask any other questions you might have.

Also, with the train strike on Friday, those of you (probably 100ish) flying in through Pisa and flying out Friday the 8th - should enough of you be in need we’ll happily get a small/large coach to bring you up (3.5-4hrs) to Pisa airport.

BOOK VIA EMAIL HERE


Kind Regards,
City Lights Team

Hi Sean, definitely interested.

What’s the process for exiting the stadium and making sure you can make your way back to your coach and a nice comfy reserved seat rather than getting kettled onto one of the laid on transfer buses? Thanks…

Hi Captain V,
Both Frecciarossa and Italo are the private train and aren’t usually part of the strikes.
However,the tracks do belong to the state and you should expect some delays.
The train usually 3hrs but there has been works going on in Florence lately which you pass and both times I’ve been up north recently I got stuck there for 1.5/2hrs.
Monday I’ll check all and keep you all updated. I offered Pisa as it’s they don’t have the private high speed trains and if need be with enough of you in need we can help you guys back to Milan on Friday too

Unfortunately around the city no. Just heads up in the smaller streets and I’d recommend anyone wanting to check out the nice neighbourhoods of Trastevere,Monti or Parioli do it Wednesday day time.

These place avoid on Wednesday night.
Good Irish pubs in Rome but just be wary.
Rome is well policed and very safe but every city has those few that nobody needs or wants.

Hi Pascal,
The exit is a bit of a push and shove and our buses will be within 150/200 meters from the away section steps.
The police lead everyone out and me and my staff will know exactly who are with us and you’ll also have token.
I can’t guarantee you the same seat on the bus but I can guarantee you a seat and a nice area to have a drink afterwards.
Away fans are usually held back for 40- 80 minutes however with Man City a couple years back in Naples we did almost 3hrs.

Really appreciate all this info sean. I may well book a place myself. Any recommendations for good hotels or hotel areas that are decent for getting back to the airport? It may have been covered elsewhere but I'm a bit thread blind

Unfortunately you guys have the six nations weekend so prices are higher than usually.
If you are planning to have a beer or 2 after the game and have a very early train just grab a place near termini as there is more competition over there and rooms are cheaper.
If you want something a little nicer I can suggest a few places.
Personally I wouldn’t spend 2/300 a night to sleep 5/6 hours. We are all different and if you’d prefer something a little more upmarket just send an email here and we’ll give you some options- Info@Citylightstours.com
On Sunday we’ll also through up a tip/info Rome page for all Brighton fans with some choices of bars and restaurants

Cheers will do. No I'm looking for as cheap as possible!

This one here is a good price and top location.
Have a look at booking.com in around ‘Termini’
It’s ok to stay for some beers but important to be close to the train station as in the morning you won’t find a taxi because of the strike.

It’s nothing special but realistically you’ll need just a bed to crash a few hours.

Sean. You mentioned pick up near the Vatican. As there are many staying in the train terminal area, any chance of pick up there. Similar with post match bar. Would be great to be together safely in a bar, but it could be a long way from our hotel. Staying Via Carlo Alberto area.

Same here. I’m staying close to Termini so being dropped back off near the Vatican is the sticking point for me at the moment.
