4:30 p.m. Arrive Toronto. Bus to Columbus. Arrive at Locker Soccer Powell around 1:00 a.m. (June 21)
Cost is currently $2,200. per person, plus the cost of the France excursion and WC ticket. I have estimated $200, but I really have no idea what it will be. I am setting up a 3 installment payment plan for $2,400 per person, with the final payment being adjusted to reflect the “true” cost of the France portion. Those 3 installments are set at $800/person.
Update: the final payment will be $850/person.
Cost includes everything associated with this trip. Bus to and from Toronto. Flights to and from Milan. Bus in Italy. Hotel. Meals. Soccer Training & Games. (Our one day excursion on Lake Como included a boat tour to Bellagio that did cost extra for the boat. This is optional, but the fee was quite small.)

Hotel Domina Milan Fiera. This is the same hotel as our previous trip. It is a four (4) Star hotel with and incredible breakfast included everyday.
Other Logistical Needs:
Passports: Please make sure that you have a valid passport. If you do not, do not wait too long to get it ordered. Passports should have at least six months remaining validity beyond out departure date of June 10th (December 10th 2019)
For the plane tickets, I will need to collect a list of everyone’s name exactly as it appears on your passport.
Roommate List: There will be mostly doubles, and a few triples. If it is one parent and one child traveling, that’s an easy double pairing. Other combinations can be more creative, and anytime we can get the kids rooming together, I think that makes for more fun for them. I will also begin collecting names for roommates.
