Alton Rugby Football Club



You will be based in the beach resort of Chioggia on Italy’s Adriatic coast.  Often referred to as ‘The Little Venice’ Chioggia is located close to Venice, and is one of Italy's major fishing ports.  Situated in the heart of the Italian rugby area, teams such as Padova and Treviso (the former club of David Campese) are both close by.  Your accommodation is located near to the beach, and day trips to Venice, the Rovigo wine producing areas and the Gardaland theme park (the biggest in Europe after Disneyland) are all possible.  This combined with the warm Italian climate will be a memorable tour. 


You will assemble at your chosen airport for your flight to Venice Marco Polo, Venice Treviso or Bologna. Once your coach has transferred you to your accommodation, the rest of the day will be free (subject to flight times) to sample the friendly atmosphere of the town or have a light training session on the beach. The evening will be free for further exploration and perhaps a group meal in a typical Italian restaurant.


After breakfast the day will be free, where you may wish to visit Po Delta Natural Park, until at 17.00 hours you will travel to your first fixture:-

19.00 Hours - ALTON RFC U16 V Petrarca Padova

You will enjoy excellent hospitality after the game before returning to your accommodation in Chioggia where the remainder of the evening will be free for you to continue your celebrations.


After breakfast, the day will be free for sightseeing, and a trip to Lake Garda and the Gardaland Theme Park and Fun Fair (the biggest in Europe after Euro Disney) is highly recommended. Here you will combine the amazing scenery of Lake Garda with the thrills and spills of the roller coaster rides of the Theme Park.  The braver members of your group may like to try the Blu Tornado or Ikarus, whilst there are many shows such as the Camelot Tournament in the medieval area, and themed eateries for those who would like to relax!


After breakfast, the morning will be free until at 16.00 hours you will travel to your final fixture:

17.30 Hours – ALTON RFC U16 V Ercole Monselice RFC

Once you have spent time with your hosts, you will return to your hotel where you will be free to continue your celebrations.


Subject to flight times the morning will be free to spend at your leisure before you depart your hotel and travel to the airport for your return flight home.
