Italy Soccer and Sightseeing

Where else but Italy could you find four national daily newspapers devoted only to soccer? Where else could you find the most competitive soccer league in the world, with a budget exceeding that of all the Northern European countries combined? And where else but Italy could stars like Del Pierro, Maldini, Totti and Buffon have status far above the president? Italy is the second most successful national soccer team in the history of the World Cup having won four titles (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006), just one fewer than Brazil. And the Italian Women’s National team just recently advanced to the Quarter-Finals of the 2019 Women’s World Cup. The Italians know their soccer and are more than happy to share this with soccer teams traveling here.

Tuscany is one of the most photogenic areas of Europe, and the center of the Italian peninsula. It represents a special blend of beauty and millennia-old monuments. Florence, the main Tuscan city famous for its cultural treasures, has been called an open-air museum surrounded by a medieval wall, with free entry.  Yet it is also a dynamic place, filled with energy and life. Florence's soccer scene, located outside the city center, includes the stadium of Fiorentina, the perpetually strong Serie A pro soccer club. A little further out is Coverciano, the national training center of the Italian Soccer Association. Close to nearly every suburban apartment building are small soccer fields, where calcio (Italian for soccer) seems to be played non-stop.

 

The name "Venice" means magic: gondolas gliding over canals, impressive cathedrals, century-old monuments, innumerable islands connected by breathtaking bridges, a beautiful square that seems to sink into the sea. This dream-like destination, spreading down the Adriatic Coast to Rimini, is the setting for an important part of Premier International Tours' program. The special combination of sandy beaches, popular seaside resorts and lively city centers hearkening back to ancient days lures up to 1000 teams each spring. From as near as Sicily and as far as Sweden they enjoy 10 international tournaments, friendlies on the coast or inland, and of course the unique magic that is Venice.

 
Italy program highlights and sights:
  • Play games vs. local Italian teams

  • Sightseeing in Venice, the city of canals

  • Sightseeing in Florence, the center of Tuscany

  • Visit stadiums and/or matches of pro teams like Juventus, Milan and Internazionale

Italy is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Some experts say that 50% of the world's artistic heritage is in Italy. Rome, Venice, Florence, Verona ... Bella Italia! The Belpaese (Beautiful Country) is one of the single greatest repositories of sensorial pleasures on earth. From art to food, from stunning and varied countryside to flamboyant fashion, Italy has it all. This is the country that brought us Slow Food, devoted to the promotion of fresh products and fine traditional cooking. Italy, and the Italians, are at times cultured and barbaric, modern and surreally old-fashioned, lazy and vibrant, in thrall of the past, and neglectful of it. Italy means something different to every tourist

"On behalf of the Cleveland Force Soccer Club/CSA Impact: What a fantastic trip! We just returned from a 9-day tour with 71 players, parents, and siblings. Between pro club training, local games, vs. similar competition, daily excursions, (this was my second time traveling with PIT) and they always provide an experience that is fun and meaningful to our club teams, families, my own kids, and myself. PIT is very professional and will go the extra mile to enhance their tours. I would strongly recommend Premier International Tours to anyone looking to explore other soccer cultures and connect with soccer people around the world.”
