Take your team on a school rugby tour to the Eternal City, Rome! Your players will love the combination of rugby, history and culture. Whilst the heartland of Italian rugby is in the north, the sport is rapidly growing in popularity in Rome, which often hosts the national sides home games at the Stadio Olimpico.

As well as training sessions and friendly fixtures against local opposition of a similar standard, you’ll also be able to watch a Six Nations or Pro12 match.

What’s more, Rome is the perfect destination for a cross-curricular trip! Why not invite your colleagues and their students in the history or languages department to join you to make this a real school event?

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We had used Halsbury for our previous tours and have always been impressed with the level of support and communication from Halsbury. We had everything we needed for the tours to run faultlessly. It feels like we are working together to really get the best out of the tour. You feel like partners more than customers. I would definitely recommend Halsbury! The support to the tour leaders is so good, and they are always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. — The Forest School , July 2023
