VILLA CASTELLETTI - SIGNA (FLORENCE)
La ToSCA marathon is one of the first marathon born in the European Tango scene…Our event has been chosen from a lot of great dancers coming worldwide; from the beginning, our goal has been to create a friendly, inclusive, welcoming atmosphere, keeping an international allure and a great ronda in the dancefloor.
From 2016 La Tosca takes place in Villa Castelletti, an amazing venue situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, a short distance from the historical center of Florence.
The winter garden of the Villa, a beautiful and bright hall that will be transformed into an amazing ballroom with 300 sq meters of laminate parquet floor and, from there, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the park and of the sky!
The marathon starts in the late afternoon of Friday and stops at 20:00 on Sunday. The After Marathon, FREE for all participants, takes place in the same venue, on Sunday, from 21.30 to 2.30.
The participation package includes meals from Friday to Sunday (2 dinners and 2 brunches).
