The tour begins in Rome with a game of golf at the historic Roma Acquasanta GC and a day trip to the gardens, ruins and villas of historic Tivoli. (this is a two day, pre tour option)
Then it's north for three days in Tuscany where we explore the hilltop villages of Montepulciano, San Gimignano and Pienza, taste the famous Brunello wines of Montalcino and pecorino cheese of Pienza. Whilst in Tuscany, we spend 1 night in the village of Montalcino and 2 nights at a 5-star golf resort, Toscano Castelfalfi. We play the challenging golf courses of Castiglion del Bosco and Castelfalfi Mountain Course.
We leave Tuscany and visit the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, then travel further northwest to Cinque Terre staying two nights in Manarola, the most picturesque of the five seaside villages. We have a full day to explore the villages and stroll the ancient footpaths linking the villages.
Heading northward along the Liguria coast, we pass through the famous Portofino Peninsula and Turin, on our way to Biella.
The beautiful and secluded Biella Le Betulle Golf Club is our home for the next two nights. Nestled in a forested valley with stunning mountain backdrops, this private course is rated amongst the best in italy.

We then head to the famous Lake Como, playing the highly regarded Castelconturbia Golf Course on the way. We have four nights at Lake Como, two in the heart of Como and two at the very opulent Grand Tremezzo Hotel. There is time for golf at two stunning courses, Villa d'Este and Menaggio and Cadennabia, a visit to the famous resort town of Bellagio and shopping in Como.
We leave Como and head east to Verona, stopping at Lake Garda and exploring the fascinating medieval town of Sirmione. We tour the ancient city of Verona (home of Romeo and Juliet) and enjoy a night at the opera in an Ancient Roman amphitheatre.
Lastly we have 3 nights in Venice, staying in an 18th Century luxury hotel in the historic centre of Venice. There is time for a full day guided sightseeing tour of Venice and a game of golf at Venice Golf Course. Appropriately, the course is built on a spectacular strip of land between the Adriatic Sea and the Lagoon of Venice. The trip concludes in Venice with a farewell dinner and gondola ride.
The trip includes 8 games of golf on the best courses in Italy and the best sightseeing and experiences Italy has to offer.

However, an important factor in the success of the tours is the camraderie of the people who join us. Golf is the common theme, but we have fun together, and lasting friendships are made...
