Top Evening Activities to Enjoy in Italy, France and Morocco

14th June, 2017
When on holiday, we spend most of the day lounging by the pool and exploring the surrounding area. However, when evening falls, it can be difficult to find a suitable activity that everyone will enjoy. Throughout Italy, France and Morocco you can find a number of spectacular activities which can make your holiday more authentic and enjoyable.

Of course, many of us like to spend a part of the evening looking for the perfect restaurant with an amazing setting, but once you have had dinner, you can become lost on what you should do next. You can head back to your villa or, you can immerse yourself in something a little bit different. We have picked out some of our favourite evening activities in Italy, France and Morocco which we are sure you will just love.

Italy

Italy is known for its traditional intimate restaurants and cobbled streets, but out of the main city of Rome, there are some hidden treasures. 

The Amalfi Coast is home to the glamorous seaside town of Positano, and in the summer, visitors can stay up until the early hours of the morning, dining in one of Positano's panoramic sea edge restaurants, drinking in any of a series of fashionable bars and pavement cafes. Be sure to look at our range of Amalfi Coast luxury villas to really make your stay special.  

Ravello is a charming village perched on a ridge high above Amalfi and the neighbouring town of Atrani. Ravello is relatively out of the way, and many of its visitors come during the day, leaving the nights gloriously quiet. For a quiet drink or cocktail in an enchanting setting, Ravello could be the ideal place for you.

For an activity where you can immerse yourself in culture and history, Florence has several night tours which can take including a ride on a Segway, or if you prefer, there are walking ones on offer. Florence looks particularly beautiful at night especially with the lights reflecting on the water.

France

France is known for its relaxed ambience, and this is shown through the nightlife. From cabaret and theatre shows to swanky bars and restaurants, there really is so much to do.

Nice is one of France’s largest cities and a popular holiday destination, so it comes as no surprise that there is a lot to see and do once the sun goes down. There is an array of cocktail bars which look out across the Mediterranean Sea. Only a short distance from Nice is the Monte Carlo casino in Monaco. Being one of the most famous casinos in the world, it is truly a spectacular place to spend the evening, relax with a cocktail and try your chances on one of the many games.

The fun doesn’t stop there as Nice is home to some fantastic music halls and opera shows. Opéra de Nice displays ballet and classical concerts and can be a great activity for those who would like a night of dancing with a twist. The Loire Valley is home to numerous bars including jazz, cocktail and wine which can serve as the perfect place to relax and unwind in the evening.  

Morocco 

Morocco is known for being a country which brings your senses alive, and when nights fall, it is even more exquisite. The central Medina in Marrakesh does not have that ‘traditional’ nightlife scene, and this is due to the fact that etiquette and law dictate that alcohol should be consumed within the view of a mosque.

With this being said, trendy nightclubs and cocktail bars are available away from the Medina, primarily around Avenue Mohammed V. Around the Medina you can find a refreshing view of street-side cafes, theatres and music venues, which are all ideal for relaxing in whilst you enjoy the atmosphere around you.
