Ideal for October or Easter training camps
Excellent food and hospitality
Affordable destination with strong opposition


Recently Italy has been gaining in popularity as a perfect destination to combine an October or Easter training camp with sightseeing and competitive fixtures.

Most of our tours tend to base themselves in/around Venice or Lake Garda. We have training camp and also hotel options all within an easy drive of competitive fixtures.

Football is clearly a national passion but the standard of rugby & hockey is equally good and should not be overlooked. We can enter you into a youth football tournament, arrange a training camp or base you in a hotel with a pool within easy reach of all you require.

For culture Italy really is unbeatable. You can spend your time in Rome or Florence, or base yourself in Lake Garda or Venice and travel to Verona, Turin & Milan.

There are theme parks, waterparks and plenty of activities to consider too. The food is great, the hospitality first rate and we always ensure that you have a tour manager on hand to translate and oversee your tour arrangements.

For an affordable destination in the sunshine – with good strong opposition – you would be hard pushed to beat Italy.
