Montreal Impact are to play two games in Italy.

The Impact will play friendly matches against Serie A clubs Bologna and Fiorentina on a post-season tour of Italy in November.

"This trip will give us the opportunity to extend our season by three weeks and cut down on the down time prior to the opening of training camp for the 2013 season," Impact sporting director Nick De Santis said in a statement.

"We would like to thank the two clubs for giving us the opportunity to organize these games, despite the fact that they are in mid-season of their championships. This trip will also help us forge a stronger relationship with two prestigious organizations and could open doors for players wishing to play in North America one day."
