Event Outline

Dolce Vita, Italian Jive Holiday to Sicily, Italy. Saturday 30 September - Saturday 7 October.
This event is now SOLD OUT.

We'll stay at the 4 Star Fontane Bianche Beach Resort located directly on the beach and in the Town of Fontane Bianche. Fontane Bianche is called after the many freshwater springs of the old town just outside the walls of Syracuse. Today it is one of the best known and most popular seaside resorts of the region. A vibrant town with a great many pubs and restaurants, Syracuse has a fantastic night life. Fontane Bianche instead is a very quite residential area albeit there are some restaurants and bars nearby. About 3Km away there are even more restaurant and bars in the town of Cassibile. For those who wish to explore nature, Fontane Bianche is nearby the Cassibile Nature Reserve, a large country area surrounding the Cassibile river, click HERE with its old quarries and unusual landscapes. For a dip in very different waters follow the river upstream to the many natural pools it has dug into the rocks as far as the spectacular canyon. The Pantalica necropolis, medieval city of the dead and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also inside the park and its hundreds of cave tombs are definitely worth a visit.

This is what we have organised via our local contacts for your jive holiday to Italy all included:

There will be evening freestyle dancing every night until very late and dance workshops. Sicily normally enjoys warm temperatures in September/October and so your room air conditioning has been included in your package. Preferably, bookings should be gender balanced. Non gender balanced bookings will be considered depending on how many people of either gender have already booked. Please note that we reserve the right to change the programme at our own descretion if the need arises at any time.
