Golf in style during your holiday in Italy

Imagine arriving in Venice with your golf kit to begin a trip of a life time, combining your passions for your favourite sport and the “dolce vita”! The journey begins in Lake Garda, where you’ll spend time playing the “green” and discovering quaint local towns. Following this, we will accompany you to Verona, the city that hosts one of literature’s greatest love stories – Romeo & Juliet – where you’ll view one of the world’s most famed balconies.

You’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the local culture and history, and be amazed by a night at the opera at the marvellous Arena. Other golf courses await you at your next stops, including Venice and Padua, and the surrounding hills and mountains. You can choose to tee off at Padua, or simply relax and rejuvenate yourself at one of the superb spas situated in the hills of Colli Euganei. Or perhaps you prefer to enjoy the surrounding nature and sample wine in the Prosecco hills, while playing the green at Asolo. Cansiglio and Cortina also offer a great golfing experience, where you can take time to enjoy a nature hike, or perhaps just indulge in the stunning mountain views and local dishes.

To complete your journey in style, you absolutely cannot miss Venice’s very own golf club, and enjoy the Venetian “calli” and “campi” between games. Now, are you ready to head back to the airport with a bag full of clubs and great memories? Or, do you choose to extend your trip and enjoy more of Vicenza’s golfing delights and explore the Palladian Villas?
