School Rugby Tour to the Italian Lakes

Best time to travel: September to May

Inspire your team with a school rugby tour to the beautiful Italian lakes! This is the heartland of Italian rugby, where the passion for the sport is palpable. In fact, eight of the Top12 teams come from Lombardy and the Vento.

Here you will find great opposition of a similar standard to your team. Pit your skills against theirs before learning about Italian culture with post-match hospitality and exciting activities. 

Make this a trip to remember with visits to one of the incredible theme parks in the area, such as Gardaland. Alternatively, soak up the culture and see the sights of Milan and Venice, or take a boat trip to see Lake Garda from a different, more serene perspective.
