About us

The Tarantella is a lively Italian folk dance with a fascinating secret history as a cathartic trance dance… In August the whole of Puglia is alive with celebrations and Tarantella being danced in the small piazzas...  Join us to swim in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, enjoy fresh Apulian food and warm evenings alive with music and dance!

Get to know the beauty of Salento region and immerse into dance! In August a month-long festival in Puglia celebrates the region's unique folk music and dance known as the "tarantella" or "pizzica". The whole Puglia region will come to life with tambourine rhythms, and every night a concert or pizzica festival will be held in different village! Do not miss this unique experience!
