Italy Sports & Outdoors

  • Soccer

    Rome Sports & Outdoors

    what other sport can be as popular as football in Italy? I've never seen such passionate fans in my life :-) supporters of different teams can be best friends in life, but when it comes to a game... it's impossible to describe. you just have to see it. I was lucky to see fantastic match between Roma and Milan. even more than game itself, you enjoy...

  • soccer

    Genoa Sports & Outdoors

    Here in Genova we really like football (soccer for Americans!), and here in Genova some English gentlemen founded the first Italian football team, CFC Genoa 1893. Genoa 1893, or simply "Genoa" won 9 Italian leagues before WWII, then a long period with no wins started, and still now Genoa is in 2nd division, trying to get back to the old glory days,...

  • Take a Hike!

    Manarola Sports & Outdoors

    The highlight of a trip to the Cinque Terre is a hike between the 5 villages. The distance from Riomaggiore to Monterosso al Mare is 12kms, and a lot of the trail is steep and rocky. The walk from Riomaggiore to Manarola is the easiest. It is paved all the way, and the hardest part is probably the flight of stairs from the station at Riomaggiore...

  • Olympic Stadium

    Rome Sports & Outdoors

    This huge stadium is both home to AS Roma and SS Lazio, and is all seater with a capacity of 82,000. I've been here twice now, once for AS Roma v Man Utd and the for the Champions League Final 2009, FC Barcelona v Man Utd. Unfortunately I haven't seen United win yet. If playing AS Roma then be aware that the fans can get very aggressive and start...

  • sailing

    Genoa Sports & Outdoors

    if you want to try to sail on an America Cup boat addressto the Sail academy, they've got 3 AC class boat ready to sail. everytime you're at sea a wetsuit id suggested, but they can provide one for you.

  • Flying/Aero Club

    Como Sports & Outdoors

    Aero Club Como offers airplane rentals (if you have the piloting license, of course :))), but only if you've got a good pocket, as it's a quite expensive hobby. You can also rent a tour over the lake, organized by the club. Even if you don't fly, it's always interesting to watch the planes taking off and landing on the lake! :) And then driving out...

  • Biking Hiking & Running

    Rome Sports & Outdoors

    Whether you are participant or spectator (like I am) - this is one of the city's most atmospheric sporting events during which the city centre is transformed into a no-traffic zone - animated with concerts and performances that celebrate this festival of sport. As well as the marathon there will be the traditional "Fun Run" (a non-competitive...

  • Circus Maximus

    Rome Sports & Outdoors

    How about running in an old and very historic scenary? Then you might want to try the famous Circo Massimo which nowadays is just a pale memory if its once so glorious days. It's only here that I mention this oval and not in the tourist traps for I believe it deserves better. In Rome there are so many sites that could use some brushing up, but...

  • Hiking in Alto Adige: enchanting

    Dolomiti (or Dolomites for non-Italians) is prime hiking in northern Italy and well known among alpinists and day hikers alike. But it can be crowded during the season and also more on the expensive side. For those who seek the less hiked paths without having to relinquish splendid scenery, the northern part of Italy’s region Alto Adige (Südtirol...

  • Wilderness hiking in Val Grande

    The majority of hiking trails in Italy’s northern regions are well marked and dotted with service huts (refugio, refugi in Italian) which provide meal and food service and beds. But there are still some wilderness parts with prime hiking paths, although for backpackers with serious backcountry experience and physical fitness only. Val Grande is...

  • Main Stadium, Chianciano Terme

    This is the main stadium in the spa resort city of Chianciano Terme and is principally used for local football matches between towns and villages in Tuscany region. It is the only outdoor stadium in Chianciano Terme. The stadium has a covered grandstand which has a seating capacity for approximately two thousand spectators. It is floodlighted and...

  • Small Motorboat Rental

    As a treat to myself when visiting Positano, I rented a small rubber motor boat. Being the complete nautical novice I was a bit apprehensive but was assured by the female German manning the booth that "If I can do it, you can do it." With this boost to my confidence, I bit the bullet and boarded for an hour rental. This was SO much fun - I highly...

  • Sailing

    Sailing in Lago di Como...A project promised from her...we are just waiting for the moment...I need to visit also the Como Lighthouse, when we will do, it will be added here for sure :-))

  • Hitting the Powder on the Alps

    Let's just say skiing in the Alps was the bext skiing ever! The beautiful mountains, combined with the perfect weather, and the fresh powder made it the ultimate winter experience! We stayed at a small chalet in the ski resort town of La Thuile. Because the town is so small, English is very uncommon and you find yourself immersed in the Italian...

  • SandBag part II

    Again the pictures seems as if I am catching the sandbag to balance it like this in the air, you have to know the truth it was moving in this voilance way right after a super fly kick, ask Dannie and Els if you don't believe LOL

  • SandBag!

    Dannie was naughty enough to take pictures and laughing at me while I was fighting that sandbag, actually the fact that I was faster in my movements than Dannie's fingers to catch the movement in the right moment, has gave a results of some funny not correct pictures here LOL

  • Hiking

    Hiking is the best sport you'll be obliged to do once you're in Venice, as I said before the whole city is a beaten path, so you will have to walk and walk, but this is really nice, no other way is better than this, meanwhile you're doing sport!

  • The challenge

    This slab of rock, known as Sass Pordoi, is simply awesome. Situated in Val di Fassa, Hollywood has noticed it and has been here. In places the cliff is a sheer 864 metres. When you stand within 100 metres of it, as I have after skiing off the top, I can tell you it is overpowering. There a long piece of rope rocking in the breeze where someone has...

  • Rigth before a slalom competition....

    I was part of the scout group "Le Masche" in Italy. I loved going hiking every two weeks, with the tents, sleeping bags and supplies for the trip. Italians have a close encounter with nature, they like exploring and experiencing new adventures.I did some sky throughout the winter in Bardoneccia (close to France), Monte Cervinio (next to...

  • Soccer (Futbol) Match

    Soccer match in Italy, wow! Games are usually on Sunday at night. Tickets are sold at Tabacco shops or other authorized outlets. Ask someone who speaks english where to buy them. If you are parking a car know your road signs or get a huge ticket for parking in a zone that is off limits or one where you have to buy a parking pass to put on the...

  • Skiing heaven

    "If you were in France right now there'd be 20 minute queues." Thus spoke my new-found friend with a heavy north England accent.The strange thing was he was a native from just 20 kms away from where we were skiing, deep in the Dolomites!Where we were, Lagazuoi, was the front line during the First World War and would be a worthy stop if you were...

  • Roma & Lazio

    Another awesome game....But this time I was not as lucky as Milano , I was alone but got my ticket when the game had just started cheaper then it was sold .It was the craziest game I have ever been to , I was in the middle of Roma fans , and when Roma soccered a goal, I found myself on the ground lying and somebody busted on lip which was...

  • Inter Milan & Juvenus

    That was the only reason I went to Milano..I'm gald I made it, it was an awesome game,although the result was tied..I met some people at hostel who joined me.The tickets were sold and the it was 50-75 Euroe at black market..Some of my firend bough fake ticket with apying 50 Euro..But me no way , while they were arguin with police , I went to gate...

  • Go watch soccer!

    Whatever the results are for teams on the international stage (they have not been excellent of late), soccer still remains the most popular sport in the country. And the soccer matches are a great show!The country's strongest teams are: Juventus, Roma, Milan, Inter, Lazio. Last year's surprise was Chievo.

  • Skiing in DOLOMITES

    The weather is just unbelievable here. For me it was 100 % of sunny days. I went there with my best friend, so... here we are having fun in the best skiing region I've ever been to.To see more about skiing in Dolomites check out my Bolzano page. Don't forget your skis.
