Venice

Our Venice Tours are based on the bustling beach resort of Lido di Jesolo, a short trip to both Venice itself and Treviso, the home of Italian Rugby Giants Benetton. A superb location to combine some warm-weather relaxation with some x-factor coaching and tough matches. 

Rugby Tours To Venice

The Veneto Province is the beating heart of Italian Rugby. Home to the Benetton franchise, coached by our company ambassador Marco Bortolami, the area produces numerous players for the Azzurri.

You'll be based at Lido di Jesolo, a superb beach resort located across the lagoon from Venice. Once a Roman settlement, Jesolo has grown to become one of Italy's most exciting and lively beach resorts. 

The city is a playground of activity, with water sports on the massive sandy beach a definite highlight. By night, the city is electric - filled with locals and tourists alike enjoying La Festa late into the evening.

Highlights of a tour here include a day trip to Venice itself, coaching clinics with Italian Rugby Legend Marco Bortolami, a day at Italy's #1 Waterpark, time on the beach & Jesolandia Theme Park.

Key Information

The Rugby

Following a steller playing career, ex-Italian Captain Marco Bortolami has taken up his first coaching post at Benetton Treviso. With his help, we can arrange coaching experiences at the Ghirada Sports Complex, the training base of the Pro12 franchise. 

Go behind the scenes at see Benetton in training, meet the players and watch the games live at the Stadio Monigo. 

With the facilities on offer at Ghirada, why not make your tour to Venice a pre-season camp? The Pitches, Gym, Pool & on-site restaurant are perfect ammunition for a cracking camp.

Away from training, the Veneto province has scores of Rugby Clubs of all levels who will be great hosts for your visit. 

Air

Venice is served by two airports, Marco Polo and Treviso. The latter is a popular terminal for budget airlines connecting across Europe, with major International lines useing the former as their base. 

Both are within short driving distance from Treviso, Lido di Jesolo and Venice - in fact, should you fancy it, you can get a River-Taxi direct from Marco Polo Airport to the city of Venice on arrival.

 

Hotel

 

In Lido di Jesolo, we have two Hotel options for you. The charming, family owned 3* Hotel Portofino & the luxurious 4* Hotel Le Soleil. Both offer outdoor swimming Pools, a mix of twin and triple rooms, a beach-front location and a good breakfast. 

The only difference is that the 4* is a 4* and the 3* is a 3*!
