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.

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
