The Stadio Olimpico Carlo Zecchini has played host to some of the biggest names in Paralympic sport at the IPC European Athletics Championships this summer but the Tuscan city has also provided the first glimpse of some of the biggest stars of the sport. Grosseto staged the 2004 World Junior Championships where Olympic champions Michelle Carter and Kerron Clement were crowned along with world 110m hurdles record-holder Aries Merritt and home favourite Andrew Howe.
Our comprehensive travel programme gives full details of flight possibilities from various UK airports, city centre accommodation close to the stadium, event tickets and return airport transfers with applicable per person prices

We are coordinating direct flights into both Rome Fiumicino and Rome Ciampino. Direct flights are possible from a number of UK airports (see below). We are correlating similar arrival (19th July) and departure (24th July) flight times in order to keep airport to hotel return transfer costs to a minimum, bearing in mind the approximate 2 hour journey time / 120 miles! It is possible to fly at alternative times of the day or even on different dates but it would be necessary to travel from either airport into Rome city centre and then take a train to Grosseto (just 4 trains per day either way). Certainly, by travelling together in numbers, this would be both the most convenient way to travel to/from the hotel, as well as financially beneficial for all.
