The Stadio Olimpico ('Olympic Stadium') is located by the banks of the River Tiber, a short way to the north of central Rome. It seats approximately 70,000 spectators. The stands, which curve right around the pitch, are covered, and are irritatingly divided from the pitch by a wide running track. The stadium was originally uncovered; the roof was added for the 1990 World Cup. New seating and security barriers were installed for the UEFA Champions' League Final in 2009.
