Event Outline

Dolce Vita Italian Jive Holiday, Venice Lagoon (Sottomarina), Italy. Saturday 21 to Saturday 28 September.
This event is now open for Bookings.

We'll stay at the recently renovated (work ended in April 2018) and stylish 4 Star Airone Hotel (see pictures below) located about 100 metres from the longest Adriatic sandy beach in the Italian coast. The hotel is in the town centre of Sottomarina and next to Chioggia, one of the oldest fishing villages in Italy. Chioggia, which is older than Venice, is built like Venice on canals and can be easily reached on 23 minutes walk crossing new and old characteristic bridges built over water. The hotel is located within the Venice Lagoon and as part of our free excursions you will be taken by boat to Venice. Along that trip we'll be coasting past a number of islands within the Venetian Lagoon. We'll arrive in Venice at the famous Piazza San Marco at which point you'll be free to explore Venice for the day. In the late afternoon the boat will return us to the hotel.

The hotel is located about 1 hour transfer from Venice's Marco Polo airport, to where we'll be flying.

The Hotel features a very large congress centre with new sound & lighting system, air con and a hard floor suitable for dancing, a very nice swimming pool and a private section of the beach. The hotel's close vicinity to the beach and the amenities in Sottomarina and Chioggia, make this an ideal holiday destination.

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

• 7 nights accommodation at the 4 Star Airone Hotel, see pictures below.

There will be evening dance workshops and freestyle dancing every night until late. Preferably, bookings should be gender balanced. Non gender balanced bookings will be considered depending on how many people of either gender have already booked.
