Italian Open in 2021

Injured Again

Hall of Fame
My wife and I will be spending a month or more in Italy in May, 2021. Going to the Foro Italico and catching the Italian Open is on our to-do list. We're planning on being there for both days of the second round, so Tuesday and Wednesday, May 11 and 12, 2021.

Our plan is to purchase day and evening session tickets for the main stadium. I assume this also gets us a grounds pass to have access to the other courts except for the Grandstand. Is that correct?

I think we'll be staying somewhere around the Colosseum. Is it pretty easy to get there and back via public transportation? We will be proficient with rudimentary Italian by the time we go.

Anything else we should know?
 
I went this year for the first time and really enjoyed myself. The buses are easy enough to use with Google Maps. I was pretty close to Foro Italico but didn't have any issues visiting the Vatican etc. You do get grounds if you purchase main stadium tickets. Pietrangeli qualifies for grounds and tends to have great matches. I don't believe you will have access to the NextGen stadium but all other courts you will 100%.

Enjoy!

We've been there last year, first day. It was delay and we should waiting outside the fences for quite a long time. And the weather became extremely cold for this period in Rome. You should get to Piazza del Poppolo area and then you could choose between bus or tram.

You can get to Foro Italico pretty easily with public transportation. I'd recommend the subway to the #2 tram, it drops you off in a plaza right across from the main road that the Foro Italico is on. Stadium tickets will get you access to the Next Gen stadium as well, but I think it'll just be general access, 1st come, 1st served, so you'll be competing with everyone else who doesnt have assigned seating. And, it's only one section of the Next Gen stadium that's general seating.

Well, COVID killed our plans for a trip to Italy this coming year, and we're now planning to spend two or three months in Italy in 2023. We'd buy assigned seats to Campo Centrale for the day and night sessions for probably all the days of the second and third rounds, and we're looking at the Monte Mario side. I assume getting those tickets gets us grounds pass access as well so we can wander.

Is Pietrangeli now called the Next Gen stadium? Do we need to buy assigned seating for that stadium to get in there or will the grounds pass we get from the Campo Centrale work?

Thanks for your help!

Pietrangeli is still considered grounds and I spent a lot of time there. NextGen is mainly assigned seats but I think there's a limited amount of first come first served for Grounds pass.
