Italian Football Tour
Ski and Sport Travel have got a well established football tour to the picturesque region of Lake Garda, in the Trentino region of Italy. Italian fixtures are against local club sides, all within a 45 minutes drive from the hotel. The season runs from October to the end of May. We make every effort to ensure that fixtures for each team are as close together as possible but sometimes if there are girls and boys fixtures from the same group it is necessary to travel from one game to the other fixture. Training is performed on excellent enclosed areas, again close to the hotels.
Included in our Italian Sports programme is a guided tour of the Stadium Guiseppe Meazza, commonly known as the San Siro Stadium which is the shared” home of AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano (Inter) both playing in Serie A of the Italian league. These famous clubs have a superb history in European football. Named after the area of Milan where it is situated, the stadium is considered one of the quintessential symbols of the city of Milan and is one of the most famous stadiums in world football. The museum part of the stadium tour, was the first of its kind to be set up in Italy. The San Siro Megastore, the main point of reference for all fans of the two teams, offers a complete range of official products of both teams including all new and exclusive brands. Its own radio station, played in the shop, adds even more to the atmosphere.
