QuinTango on the Amalfi Coast


October 16-24, 2015

Joan Singer, Director and Founder of QuinTango

 

Tango & Italy are the perfect pair -- so we are excited to invite you to travel with us to the Amalfi Coast October 16 - 24, 2015. Think Moorish palazzos, Mediterranean nights, and Tango in the golden autumn splendor of Italy’s most spectacular coast. This QuinTango Fans & Friends tour is sponsored by the Amalfi Coast Music Festival. 

 

We will arrive at the Naples airport on Friday, October 16. The Festival will whisk us to our hotel in Maiori, a centrally located sea resort popular since Roman times. Medieval architecture, a 9th century castle, a monastery filled with stunning murals, and the longest stretch of beach on the Amalfi Coast await you. Three UNESCO sites are within 30 minutes -- Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano.

 

We have breakfast and dinner together daily –  the food and the views are incredible and we have time to sit and chat! In the evening there will be memorable music. QuinTango will perform three or four concerts in distinctive settings -- villas, cloisters, monasteries, vineyards. Concert sites reflect Amalfi’s rich Greek, Roman, Norman, Saracen and Arab- Sicilian past. You will share the sweat, the tears, and the glory of being “on tour with the band,” reveling in our performances in front row seats and enjoying the post-concert celebrations and camaraderie of the trip home. You will be tempted by tango dance lessons and open QuinTango rehearsals at the hotel, plus a geology talk or two and, of course, late night socializing with the incomparable local limoncello! 

EXCURSIONS INCLUDE:

 

  • Ravello - Visit the great villas and gardens where Wagner composed Parsifal -- the setting for his magical Klingsor’s garden.

  • Amalfi - tour the stunning 9th century cathedral and stroll through the honeycomb of medieval lanes filled with colorful shops and food emporiums.

  • Pompeii - explore the haunting excavations and view the treasures unearthed there that now reside in the National Archeology Museum in Naples.

  • Capri / Positano - experience the dramatic coastline from the sea and the exhilarating climb to the peaks.

  • Naples - spend several days in one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. A highlight of the Naples stay will be La Notte di Tango, sponsored by the Naples tango community and featuring a QuinTango concert and a milonga (tango dance).
