Here is our new sports tour of Italy with an American football team.
As usual in Intursports Travel Services, we have started the summer of 2022 with a first-class international sports experience. On this occasion, we have travelled to Italy with an itinerary of twelve intense days full of sports and recreational activities. We have traveled with our client, an American U16 soccer team and their companions, for whom we have designed a tour tailored to their needs, with official training sessions with three of the most important Serie A Clubs.

We started our trip in the Piedmontese municipality of Pinerolo, located at the foot of the Alps and 40 minutes from the city of Turin. An idyllic of alpine beauty and mild temperatures in summer, excellent for sports, where we spent the next 4 days.
During their stay in Pinerolo, the team had the opportunity to live an intensive sports experience with the most successful team in Italy: Juventus. They held three training sessions in Cantalupa, in the club’s official facilities led by official technicians of the Bianconeri Club. Among the coaches was Paolo Calefati, director of the goalkeeping area, who has more than 20 years of experience at Juventus.
Friendly match session at Cantalupa
In addition to the official training sessions, the team and accompanying guests were able to do a guided tour of the Allianz Stadium and the club’s museum, as well as enjoy an exquisite menu at the Legends Clubs, a restaurant integrated into the stadium with privileged views of the pitch. They were also able to into practice what they had learned in the technical sessions in a friendly match against SCA Asti, Juventus’ academy partner team.
Visit to San Siro Stadium
After four intense days with Juventus, it was time to leave Pinerolo and travel to the next city on our Tour: Milan, where we would spend the next 8 days.
Milan is a cosmopolitan city with a wide variety of tourist attractions, something that the parents and family members accompanying the group deeply enjoyed. For the first four days of our stay in Milan, the team was in the hands of Inter Milan’s coaches. They had three official training sessions at the Suning Development Center, located within the city of Milan.
They also had the opportunity to visit the Club’s central offices, where they received a technical talk about the philosophy, methodology and values of Inter Milan. It was very interesting for the players to be able to go beyond the strictly sporting aspects and also experience the management environment of a Club of the stature of the Nerazzurri team.
Visita al Estadio San Siro
Besides the training sessions, we visited the San Siro stadium, a facility shared by the two main clubs of the city: Inter Milan and AC Milan, and one afternoon we went to the town of Solaro, where they played a friendly match against the Milanese team Universal Solaro.
The experience with Inter Milan ended with the presentation of diplomas and a farewell talk by the coaches in the sports city.
Visit to the AC Milan museum
To complete the sporting part, we took a guided tour of Mondo Milan, the AC Milan museum that displays all their trophies and historical achievements in an interactive way. The museum is located in the club’s headquarters, in the center of Milan, where we were also able to visit the offices and the incredible audiovisual center from which they create all the content both for themselves and for sponsors. We ended the visit with a talk about the club’s methodology and values, and a visit from the legendary Franco Baresi, considered one of the best defenders in the history of soccer.
In addition to the first class sporting experience, both in terms of training and technical facilities, players and their companions also had free time to enjoy the hotels, both 4-star with excellent locations, and the varied touristic options offered by the cities of Turin and Milan.
