See a soccer game in Italy?

My family are travelling in Italy the last two weeks of March. We thought it might be fun to see a soccer game. We'll be in reach of Florence and Siena for a week, and in Rome for four days. Has anyone out there done this, have any suggestions, or league site links?
Thanks!

League matches are usually held on Sundays(sometimes on Wednesday and Saturday nights). Rome has two teams:AS Roma(www.asroma.it) and SS Lazio (www.sslazio.it), both play at Olympic Stadium. Stadium capacity is 80,000+ so you can usually get tickets on the day of the match at the stadium unless their opponent is each other or one of the two teams from Milan(AC Milan or Inter). Sometimes you can also buy tickets on-line from the site: www.listicket.it Of the two teams Roma is currently in second place and Lazio in the middle to the table.

Thanks Michael. In checking on-line, it seems Empoli, Siena and Florence all have Series A teams. As you said, their games seem to be on Saturday night of the Easter weekend we will be in that area. I'll check out the Rome teams schedule as well. Anyone know how to get tickets? The team web sites list prices but don't seem to offer purchase.
Thanks!

Mark.You don't need to worry about buying tickets in advance.Just walk in on the game day at the ticket window and buy them there.I was over there during christmas break and missed catching any games but my brother lives in Italy and i myself am a big soccer crazy dude and know a lot about italian soccer.The game in Italy is in deep crysis from many early and late scandals and stadiums are half empty,so plenty of tickets for walk ins,believe me.Have fun and enjoy because otherwise is a great experience and a very nice atmosphere,especially if you have a chance to see AS ROMA or FIORENTINA(Florence).They are doing better then other teams you mentioned and have the most pasionate fans.
