    There is a group of us traveling from the States to Italy at the end of April to ATango. While we have venues for milongas while in Tuscany I am having a hard time finding milongas in Rome for Saturday, May 6th and Sunday May 7th. Anyone know of where they occur?

    Any information is appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Entrance fees are expressed in euros. If you are going to call contact people from outside Italy, you should use international code first (+39).
    If you need info about how to reach each place, you can make a search (in English) with mapquest.

    I was at "Alpheus" milonga on sundays and I liked it very much; people who were at "Il giardino del tango" on saturdays said it's a very nice place to go dancing Argentine Tango.


    Hoping you'll have a nice staying in Italy!

    Thank you so much! I will print these out, check the distances from our hotel near those famous Spanish Steps, and make sure to save enough energy from sightseeing to step out at a milonga, or TWO! I simply cannot believe we are getting to go!

    Last weekend my husband and I went to Rome and danced at "Il giardino del tango": it's really a nice place to go as we were told.

    People met there also said that the best place (where you can find the best dancers) to dance AT in Rome is "Milonga Tanguera" on fridays: if you are still planning your travel, you could consider to be in Rome on friday night. ;)

    Arca: Milonga Tanguera
    Indirizzo/Address: Via degli Angeli, 146 (Tuscolano) - Orari/Timetables: 22.30-03.30
    Costo/Fee: 7 €- Musicalizza/DJ: Felix Picherna - Contatti/Contacts: 3338150608
    Note/Notes: first time extra fee 6 €. Last milonga before summer close on July 15th.



    By the way, there are no milongas near the Spanish Steps, so you'll have to call a taxi.

    I wish I had been dancing AT when I visited Rome a couple years ago. I had a lot of fun visiting all the tourist sites. I think next time I visit, I'll restrict my tourist activites to the Vatican, and devote evenings to tango and opera and other cultural things in Rome... Mmm, that would be nice.

    :)

    Maggie, how was your Italian travel? Did you go dancing AT? Did you like Italian milongas?

    Jhpark, it's a nice idea to travel Italy for cultural things: may I suggest Verona for opera and tango?

    Thank you very much Tangeura.
    I really appreciate you taking time getting the information for me.

    Hope your French is getting better (visited your blog, its great). As for my Italian, only know 4 words (hello, thank you, good morning & good night) and don't even sure if i pronounce them right.

    Regards.

    LaRose, you are welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog (the Italian one or the English one?). :)

    And yes, my French is better now: I'm also dreaming in French!!!!!! :eek:

    Hi Tanguera,

    Just to let you know that we came back from Rome and went to three of the milongas you listed. They were: Il Giadino del Tango, Alpheus and Tangopolis.
    It could have been four but our cub driver can't find Milonga Tanguera. It seems via degli Angeli 146 is not on the map only 145 & 147 and they are apartment residences. But we really enjoyed the 3 Milongas...THANK you very much. Chiao

    It's nice to hear from you, Rose, and it's nicer to know you had fun!

    I'm sorry for Milonga Tanguera: I checked the website of Tango@Roma and I found that address...

    Ciao!

    hi! :D

    I'm really sorry to ask nearly the same question,but... :)

    with my husband we're to be in rome for the easter weekend (7-9.04.2007). i found on tango@rome forum the part about milongas nevertheless i'm not sure if all the given addresses will be open during the easter.
    can i check it "on-line" somehow or should i just pick up the taxi and check by meself while i'll be already in rome?

    best

    Welcome to DF, Anise!

    I just checked http://www.tangoaroma.com/tangoaroma/milongas.asp and it seems that there are no variations during the Easter time... but this sounds a little strange to me... I'm going to check once again and if I find something I'll write it here. :)

    anise New Member

    thank You Tanguera :)

    yes, i was a little surprise that there are no changes, but maybe...?
  18. Tanguera

    Tanguera New Member

    You will be there during the days you wrote before, i.e. 7-9.04.2007, or for more days? I'm going to send an email to ask if there are changes during those days. Are you looking for practicas or lessons too?
  19. anise

    anise New Member

    no, unfortunetly i can go to rome just for the easter weekend (+ monday) hence no practicas in the plans :(
    nevertheless i hope i'll have a chance to do a small shopping and maybe new pair of shoes will be bought :p

    i've tried to use "small-chat" option on tango@rome web but there was nobody who speaks english and my italian = 0
