Passports and visas

  • you dont need a visa to travel to Italy on a British passport from the UK, but your passport should be valid for the duration of your stay;

  • remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if youre only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties;

  • you must carry ID with you at all times - youll need to carry your passport to the match to gain entry to the stadium;

  • if you lose your passport, youll need to get an Emergency Travel Document from the British Consulate-General in Milan or the British Embassy in Rome; youll need to supply a police report, flight reservation and one photo; the fee is 100.00

Getting to the stadium

At the match

  • large amounts of coins, belts with large buckles and heavy cigarette lighters arent allowed in the stadium; check with Southampton FC if you need more information about the rules on banners/flags;
  • arrive at the stadium in good time as entry/security procedures may take some time to complete; at the end of the game youll be asked to stay in the stadium for a short time to allow the home supporters area to be cleared;
  • the Italian government has a zero tolerance policy on hooliganism both inside and outside the stadium.


  • beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway station (Stazione Ferroviaria), around the town centre and when using public transport; only carry what you need, leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits;

  • if youre travelling in a car, remember to always lock the vehicle and never leave valuables inside; hire cars and foreign registered vehicles are more of a target for thieves.
