Rugby is gradually gaining in popularity in Italy, especially since the country became the sixth team of the Six Nations. Although the north is the rugby stronghold, Rome is where the Azzurri play their home games and is an excellent choice for your adult or university rugby tour. We are able to arrange fixtures against local opposition, with whom we enjoy strong links. Your competitors will provide you with a hearty welcome and you will enjoy some fantastic post-match hospitality.

Although Rome itself does not have a beach, these are just a short journey away in famous Ostia.
