Are you looking for a school rugby tour to Italy that will help your students to improve their technical skills and develop their passion for the sport? Then a visit to Verona Rugby Academy could be the perfect choice for you!

Your students will enjoy two training sessions with Verona Rugby Academy coaches, with access to the academy’s state-of-the-art training facilities. You’ll then be able to test your skills in a friendly fixture against local opposition of a similar standard.

Verona is in the heartland of Italian rugby and you’ll have the chance to add match tickets to see local Pro 14 sides Zebre or Benetton Treviso in action, subject to match schedules and ticket availability.
