Of course, Juventus is famous for its world class footballing powers and children can learn the secrets of the most successful side in Italian history at the resort.

The Turin side is top of the table and on target to defend its title again this season, and budding stars of the future can train using the same methods as its stars at the camp.

Open to boys and girls aged 5 to 16 years, each day features 3-hours training including skills sessions, match practice and advice on fitness. There is no doubt that children will gain confidence in their football ability and return home with improved prowess on the pitch!

Prices start at around £292 per person for a 4-days programme with longer stay camps also available. It is good to see that families with more than one child participating can enjoy a 10 per cent discount. Please note that all rates are exclusive of VAT.

Parents will feel happy at the resort which is surrounded by a magnificent mountain backdrop and picturesque orange groves. Verdura Resort's full-size football pitch provides a great training facility for the camps and while their children are busy improving their football skills, parents can take advantage of the array of other luxury facilities available at Verdura including two 18-holes championship golf courses and extensive practice amenities, a six-court tennis academy, numerous water sports, a 60m two-tiered infinity pool, a 170sqm fully-equipped gymnasium and an award-winning 4,000sqm spa complex.
