Naples Nightlife Naples Guide

Naples Nightlife

The city of Naples has a great tradition of relaxed bars and outside drinking, plus some incredible clubs that open up in the summer months along the Naples coastline. Squares in the Old Town of the city host thousands upon thousands of locals every night of the week sitting around, drinking a beer or an Aperol Spritz and chatting with friends. Naples is host to no less than three Univeristies, so it has a very young, bohemian vibe. Bars and Cafes often double up as places to go and share ideas and read or even host events like poetry reading and live music. Check out our top picks for Naples Nightlife.
