Venatour

Schools & Clubs - Italy

great destination for October and February Half Term tours from the UK as the seasons fit very well. The bonus is that there is so much to see in a relatively small area with reasonable travelling times to make a 2 or 3 center tour very easy! Most tours are based around the north such as Venice or Lake Garda. These can either be linked or replaced with Rome and Milan which also have good sports facilities.


SPORTS & SEASONS

Rugby

Sep-May               

Played mostly in the North with the popular areas being Padua and Treviso – making Venice a great place to base yourselves. The standard is getting better and better each year off the back of the success of the national team – so don’t think you’ll be in for an easy ride!     

Football

Sep-May

As you can imagine in a football mad country this is played right across the country and you have the option of traditional touring or entering local tournaments.

Hockey

Sep-May

A good standard of hockey for girls can be found and astro turf pitches are widely available.

Basketball 

Sep-May    

Gaining in popularity all the time with every level of opposition available – played widely.  


CULTURE 

Virtually limitless, steeped in history and you can add as much or as little as you like to your stay. Gladiator training in Rome, the leaning Tower of Pisa, walking tour of Florence and the sheer beauty of Siena are all worth considering.

ACTIVITIES 

There are theme parks, waterparks and of course plenty of water based activities along the coast – along with one of the great Italian passions – EATING! Why not enjoy an evening of making your own pizza and get involved in local traditions.

ACCOMMODATION

There is something for every budget.

A plentiful supply of excellent hostels offer great value for money and are often very well located. There is the option to stay at a sports center with facilities on site for those wanting extra time to train, or you can go down the traditional hotel route.
