Rome? The Colosseum and tennis: in May, flying to Rome means meeting the greats of tennis, attending epic challenges to the sound of rackets and following the clay court champions live. Find your favorites and discover tennis-playing Rome with Alitalia!


On the subject of tennis, the Spanish tennis player Juan Carlos Ferrero once said that "the game is 50% mental, 45% physical and 5% tennis." According to Roger Federer, tennis is special because it is both artistic and athletic.

Then there's Angelo Binaghi. The chairman of FIT (Federazione Italiana Tennis — the Italian tennis federation) introduced one of the most eagerly awaited tennis events in the world, maintaining that "Everyone has tennis, only we have Rome." This is the motto of the 2014 Internazionali BNL d’Italia.
In short, we can say plenty about the tennis, but one thing is sure: watching your favorite tennis players live on the court, with Rome in the background and the Foro Italico in front of you, is a unique experience. And a one-off. You can experience it as well! The Foro Italico is ready for the event: from May 10 to 18 it will host tennis greats on the international stage. Get ready for nine really intense days of "combined"tennis, that is to say men's and women's competitions at the same time


Will a full day at the Internazionali d’Italia leave you more run down than your smartphone battery? Recharge your batteries in one of the many green areas of Rome in the Foro Italico area: the Monte Mario nature reserve, for example, or Villa Glori.

In May more than ever fly Alitalia to the capital... of tennis!
