Campanian Nightlife

By American and British standards, nightlife in Campania's provincial towns tends to be dull. There isn't a bar culture in southern Italy, and often what's called a pub here is a rather pale imitation. Cultural and social life, though, are always lively, from strolling along the main street or going out for dinner, to having an aperitivo, eating handmade gelato, or going to the theater or a movie.

While there are some great nightclubs in Naples, the situation is quite different in the rest of the region. You'll find some good clubs along the Amalfi Coast in summer, but things are quieter in the evening in the country. Your best option will often be a concert. Musical events (both classical and Italian pop) are sometimes staged in even the most remote little towns and villages.
