Italy: Golf Activity Holiday
Way more than just good spaghetti bolognese.
Rated as one of the top destinations to play golf in the world, Italy boasts some truly beautiful world class golf courses. Golf courses in Italy range from those located high in the Alps in Lombardy and Piemont to those like the San Michelle Golf Club, making good use of its beautiful seaside location to entice golfers. Like you needed another reason to travel to Italy.
Italy golf package vacations usually revolve around the northern regions, between Milan and Venice in the Lakes District. Food, art, hiking – these can wait until after you hit the links. The lakes the region is named for, including the famed Lake Como; trickling rivers, verdant hills - they all come together here, and the many golf courses in Italy do their best to take advantage of the country’s scenic landscape.
While most Italy golf package vacations are found in the charming northern regions, you can still find some great courses the further south you travel. Both the Napoli and Porto D’Orra Golf Clubs outside Naples offer some of the country’s best golfing.
But the central areas like Tuscany and Lazio are where you’ll experience the true joy of a golf holiday. Italy doesn’t get much better than these regions, and the golf courses here are no exception. The brilliant greens and hilltop views that make Tuscany one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country are on full display along the Tuscan golf courses – the standouts include Toscana Il Pelagone and Poggio Dei Medici (just a short trip from Florence). Mix recreation with culture with a stay in Tuscany, visiting the beautiful courses during the day and sampling the great wines and pasta at night.
