This is a small scale tango event with a limited number of participants. In this way we can keep it safe and we can comply with the corona regulations. Therefore, in a time where all big tango festivals are getting postponed, we can offer tango dancers the possibility to dance and take a holiday at the same time. So, get your chance and book it now!
WHAT IS THIS EVENT?
Come dance tango at this magical medieval village in the heart of Tuscany (Italy) where you can also enjoy the sun, walk in nature, have a swim in the pool, relax, eat delicious organic food and drink homemade wine, visit nearby cities, go to the beach and meet other friendly fellow tango dancers. Tuscany Tango Holiday is also part of the summer VOL’Tango Festival.
Of course you are free to do whatever you feel like, because all activities are optional. This is your holiday. The tango holiday you deserve!
