Join Us On an Exciting Golf Adventure to
Italy Including Rome & Florence

Departure:  October 29, 2017  (leaving JFK the United states)
Arriving Rome on October 30-November 5,  2017
7 days / 6 nights / 2 days of golf 

Only in Rome can you sip cappuccino at a café in front of the Pantheon, buy grapes at a centuries-old market, and possibly have an audience with the pope—all in one morning!   You are invited to travel with us for a spectacular mix of art, grand history,  exuberant street life, and great GOLF!   This culturally intriguing destination is a must see and a MUST GOLF!  However, non-golfers are always welcome to join us, and many do, because there is so very much for them to enjoy, too.

Perfected over centuries, it’s no surprise that we have selected these two glorious destinations and combined them into an opulent scenic tour, so you can then check both of these off your bucket list.  A fabulous trip!
