Where it’s held
Destination Lignano Riviera!
Lignano Sabbiadoro is a spectacular peninsula on the Adriatic Sea, just up the coast line from Venice. As one of the main northern Italian summer resorts it boasts 8km of golden sands on its blue flag beaches on the Lignano Riviera. SportsFest is held at the purpose built sports tours destination Bella Italia Village which gives you all the sports facilities that you require as well as only being a short walk along the promenade to the fashionable pedestrianised centre of Sabbiadoro.
The Bella Italia Village
The Bella Italia Village is a self contained sports resort which we believe is the best of its kind for school sports tours. Offered exclusively by Activ4 School Tours this purpose built destination is set in 60 hectares of pine forest and has over a kilometre of its very own beach.
The international standard facilities include three football centres, four basketball courts, a spectacular indoor stadium for netball and an Olympic swimming pool and not only that it has its very own water park onsite.
Sample Itinerary for Italy School Netball Tours
Day 1 Depart the UK
Depart from school and head to Dover where you will cross the channel to Calais travelling overnight to the resort of Lake Garda. Make sure you take your favourite DVD’s with you to enjoy throughout the journey!
Day 2 Arrive at Bella Italia Village
On arrival at the hotel your activ4 rep will assist you with check in to ensure that there are no problems. School groups have been coming to the resort for a number of years which is a testament to how much it has to offer. The lake is the largest in Italy, located in the North of the country situated between Venice and Milan. The Park Hotel Jolanda is a well appointed hotel with fantastic views of Lake Garda itself. As with all areas of activ4 programmes, evening entertainments will be carefully planned for your group. We can arrange a room for you to do a quiz or have a meeting.
Day 3 Coaching Sessions and the Beach
Your group will start each day with a buffet breakfast before heading out for the day’s activities. Coaching sessions will commence in the morning and one of the great things about touring in Italy is that they excel in so many different sports so their sporting facilities are superb and just a short distance away. Our main training venues include facilities at Sommercampagna and Bussolengo. Our professional and experienced activ4 coaches really know how to work the students and your first session is sure to excite them all. The first fixtures get underway late afternoon or early evening and where possible it’s always a bonus for teams to watch each other play. After the first of your fixtures you will enjoy a visit to Sirmione Amusement Arcade where you can enjoy the many activities on offer including the video games!
Day 4 Excursion to Udine with Dacia Arena
Following a morning coaching session, today you will visit one of the most exciting cities in Europe, Milan. Start with a visit to the impressive San Siro Stadium home to both AC and Inter Milan for a stadium tour. Your tour takes you to the grandstand which offers an excellent view of the pitch and stadium. You will visit the VIP stands, the hospitality areas, the interview room as well as the players’ changing rooms. With so many fantastic photo opportunities make sure you have your camera at the ready! Complete your tour with a visit to the museum and stadium shop. No visit to Milan would be complete without setting aside time for shopping in the ‘fashion capital’. Visit ‘La Galleria’ shopping area where you will be sure to find a treat or two! Back in resort this evening you will finish your day with a visit to the beautiful lake for a pizza night!
Day 5 Final Day of Sport and Disco Night

Visit Piazza delle Erbe which is great for shopping and ice-cream. Prior to departure your tour manager will discuss the format and the standard of opposition required in order to get the most out of your tour. The students will have acclimatised to their surroundings and will be keen to put in a good performance later on in the day for the final fixtures and tournament finals. As it’s the final night what better way to round off your tour than with a Presentation Night and Disco which will be hosted by the activ4 team, so tonight everyone will gather together for the final celebrations and farewell.
