Our „Best of Tango Hotspots“ brings you to some of the most stunning places in the Eastern Mediterranean. A dream comes true: every day is unique and brings a new experience. Wherever possible, we meet the local tango community and dance together. What could be better than dancing Tango with new friends, while enjoying spectacular views?
Tango lessons are in small groups and the Milongas onboard complement this unique dancing experience.

Our tango cruise begins in Civitavecchia; Civitavecchia means "ancient town" and is located not too far from Rome ‘the eternal city’; full of history and romance! During this nine-nights Tango cruise, we will visit some of the most stunning places in the Eastern Mediterranean. Our first port of call is Messina in Sicily. It is not far from Taormina, which is famous for its „Dolce Vita Flair“ and the beautiful view of the Mount Etna. At Piazza del Duomo in Messina, we plan to organize an „Aperitivo Milonga“ together with the Tango community of Messina. So we can start to get in a perfect relaxed tango mood…
Malta welcomes us with a rich cultural past. Take a walk through the old city with its numerous historical buildings and feel the past come alive. We were so impressed when we visited the capital La Valletta last year that we wanted to return and learn more interesting facts about the time of the Military Order of Malta. Malta also has a very nice tango scene and so we plan to dance together once more amongst the quaint historic buildings in the harbour. Incidentally, the exit from the Marina along the city fortifications is a memorable experience, one to take with us as we continue our journey towards Greece.
We can relax one day at sea before we arrive in Mykonos. Here we can dance tango near the famous white windmills, which overlook 'Little Venice’: a charming town with classical Venetian architecture, yet a typical Greek ambience. After that, we will stop in the beautiful island of Santorini; where we will have the opportunity to dance tango in some exceptional scenery! Here we experience "Authentic Greece", exactly how you imagined it in your dreams… with breathtaking views of the deep blue sea and the crater of a volcanic island; Picturesque villages with their whitewashed houses and many cozy taverns, which invite you to linger a little longer… Next stop is Athens: steeped in history, Athens is famous for the "Acropolis" and the beautiful "Agora", the historic town center. There is also a young and lively tango scene in Athens, and if we have enough time, we can meet for a spontaneous Milonga in the afternoon. After exploring and dancing in so many different harbors, we can look back on all our wonderful experiences, while relaxing on our last day at sea before we arrive in Civitavecchia.
Tango lessons with Adriana and Felipe top off this cruise. And after nine days full of wonderful moments, we promise: 'tango cruising' is more than a holiday; it is a perfect and unique vacation.
Dancing tango and meeting tango friends from all over the world in these iconic cities will make this a very special experience.
