Italy is the perfect summer sporting destination. Its picturesque towns provide the perfect backdrop for warm weather training sessions and provide teams with plenty of things to do during downtime.


Excellent organisation of activities and transportation. Staff on both the English and Italian side were both very helpful and responsive to requests.
