Are you looking for a school football tour that combines friendly fixtures with the opportunity for your students to discover a different European culture through sport? Then a school football tour to the Italian Lakes could be ideal for your team!

Italy is football-mad and the north is where the sport was born in the country. A number of Serie A giants are based around the lakes, including three of the Seven Sisters of Italian football – Juventus, Milan and Inter.

On your school football tour to the Italian Lakes, your team will take on local opposition of a similar standard. They’ll have time to socialise with their Italian opposition and learn about their culture. You’ll also have time to visit Milan or Venice, as well as some of the theme parks the area is famous for.
