Verdura Golf and Spa ResortCalling all football fans. Coaches from the prestigious Juventus Football Club-- part of Italy's top-flight first division, two-time winners of the Champions League, and arguably one of the best professional soccer teams in the world-- have taken up summer residence at the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sicily. Until September 15, 2013, the coaches will offer daily training sessions for young guests (5 to 16 years of age) to hone their soccer moves. Not only that, but matches take place at the resort, a member of the Rocco Forte Collection, every five or seven days.

While the kids are happily occupied on the soccer field, framed by orange groves, their parents can play a round of golf on the championship course, loll by the infinity pool, hit the beach, or indulge with olive-oil massages at the spa, one of our favorites around the globe. (And make sure you sample one of the personalized cocktails by ace barman Massimo.) For more information, visit www.verduraresort.com.
