2022. It will be the crucial year for the entire golf sector in Italy. From 30 September to 2 October 2022 the Ryder Cup will be played in Italy and will be played at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, a Golf course located in the Lazio Region, more or less at a distance of 23 km from the Colosseum in the center in Rome !!

Organizing your golf holiday in Lazio means discovering culture, history, traditions, territory as well as playing in some of the most beautiful golf courses in Italy.

Walking in Rome, the Eternal City

It was once said that all roads led to Rome, and with good reason: capital for centuries of the greatest empire that the West has known, a model of development for all European metropolises, a melting pot of cultures and religions, home to popes and kings, Rome is a treasure chest that contains more than two millennia of history, and that shows them generously to those who walk through its streets. Roman ruins contend for the attention to baroque churches and stately sixteenth-century palaces, medieval squares accommodate airy eighteenth-century fountains; and above all there is the unmistakable spirit that Fellini immortalized in La dolce vita. Rome’s attractions are endless; and for this reason, even just walking aimlessly plunges into a timeless city.

Go up to the dome of San Pietro and admire the Sistine Chapel

The whole of Rome stretches out before those who climb the 133 meters of St. Peter’s Dome, one of the symbols of the city: built according to Michelangelo’s designs, crowning the magnificent Basilica of San Pietro, and looming over the magnificent square in front, giving the brave ones that they venture up to the top the feeling of being able to hold the Colosseum, and touch the glistening ribbon of the Tiber. Less suggestive, seen from above, are the Vatican Museums, but inside they hold a treasure: the spectacular Sistine Chapel, painted by Michelangelo on commission from Julius II, who wanted to complete the already remarkable fifteenth-century pictorial decoration, work of an extraordinary o group of painters: Perugino, Botticelli, Signorelli and Ghirlandaio. Thus was born one of the most grandiose pictorial cycles ever built, recently restored and restored to the admiration of all.

Visit Villa d’Este and Villa Adriana in Tivoli

Located in the immediate surroundings of Rome, on the slopes of the Tiurtini Mountains, the Latin city of Tivoli, has even more ancient origins than the capital (1265 BC) and boasts two unmissable places: Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este. Formerly known as Villa Tibur or Tiburtina, imperial Villa Adriana owes its current name to its builder: the emperor Hadrian decided to build his residential villa in the enchanting city of Tivoli, a resort that was then very fashionable at the aristocracy Roman. Villa d’Este was instead commissioned by Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este in the 16th century and is a masterpiece of the Italian garden: its impressive concentration of fountains, nymphaeums, caves, water features and hydraulic music is a model often emulated in the European gardens of mannerism and baroque.

Some tips on golf courses:

  • To book the Tee Time, it is best to send an email to the secretary of the Golf Club you have chosen, asking for availability, obviously indicating the day and an indicative time. You can find the e-mail address by opening the Golf Club website from “Open website” and then searching for “contacts” or some Golf Clubs have the form to fill out to get the Tee Time. I think it’s better to send an email to the Secretariat.
  • Clicking on “Map link” opens Google Map at the point of the Golf Club. You can have the necessary information to reach the playing field or to know the distances for example from the Hotel you have chosen for the stay.

Food, Wine & Cooking Classes


Lazio is one of the most oenologically productive regions. The most suitable areas for viticulture are those on the slopes of volcanic reliefs, which have lava-tufaceous soils capable of nourishing the vine at its best. Even in Roman times, the hilly area of the Castelli Romani was destined for the cultivation of vineyards, which produced the much loved and requested wines at banquets and in the most popular characters’ banquets. White wines make the lion’s share, but there is no lack of interesting reds, such as those from Cesanese grapes.

Cultural & Theme Tours

For many, Italy is exhausted within the boundaries of the usual tourist routes. It is not so. There are places and works of art that stand out, isolated and secret, on the margins of roads less traveled, in the shadow of simply more famous masterpieces. However, they are places and works of art that, alone, are worth a trip.
