Views of Europe

A 16u Baseball Trip led by Primetime Baseball

July 21 - 31, 2018

 

 

Bewilder.

Become stunned as you cruise through some of Europe's most picturesque lakes and villages. Take in the beauty of the Swiss Alps and the tranquility of Lake Como. Rest yourself before entering into a 5-day baseball tournament in Parma, one of the most beheld culinary capitals of northern Italy. Learn the culture that makes Switzerland one of the cleanest countries in the world. 

Compete.

Understand the responsibility that comes with being the only American team in a 40+ team international tournament. Retune your ears as you hear 'Andiamo Rigazze!!'  being shouted across the diamond from the dugout. Remind yourself of what it means to represent the USA both on and off the field. Take Pride. Play Hard. Play With Class. 

Taste. Smell.

Get ready to light up your taste buds ready as we have local cheese fondue, Swiss chocolates get home cooked meals with local host teams, visit regions specifically known for famous Italian cuisine such as risotto, pesto, parma ham, parmesan cheese, lasagna, gnocchi...and of course, pizza! 

See. Feel.

Put the history book down and put your Instagram filter ON as we bring some of the most iconic historical sights in modern history to live. Feel the size of the Colosseum, admire the unparalleled work of the Sistine Chapel, gaze at the Duomo in Milan and Florence, or glamour at the perfection of the David. 

 

 

 

 

Keep scrolling to peak a quick glance at some aerial views of Lucerne... a small lake city in the heart of Switzerland that will break up our drive from Zurich to Lake Como...
