Fun and nightlife

Albenga is a city to live all day long: after a day out or on the beach, it makes it's way in the evening when the fascinating historical heritage, illuminated by the moon, blends with the light-heartedness of the younger looking for fun and quiet families to accompany the little ones.

On Friday and Saturday in particular, young people and families every week populate the squares, alleyways and streets of the sea or spend the evening in locals offering interesting aperitifs and local dishes. In the summer months the nightlife involves the streets of the historic center , auction street,  square erbe, Saint Michele square,  Cavour street, Gold medals street, Saint Domenico square, San Siro square, Saint Francis square, People's square, Piave street, Tiziano street,  Michelangelo street . Characteristic locals offer evenings of music, entertainment and good food.

Martyrs avenue, Thousand's street and Trieste street  are the long shopping streets and allow you to reach the area by sea. Europe square, Italy avenue, Marconi square and Colombo seafront allow you to walk around with an ice cream and have dinner near the sea, savoring the scent of the sea, glimpsing the shape of the Gallinara in the dark of night. A large and well-equipped playground for the little ones will satisfy the remaining energy of the children.

Aperitif at sunset

For those unwilling to experience the night, Albenga allows you to drink an aperitif at sunset, choosing among the locals who will conquer you with sympathy and ingaune specialties: the DOC wines of Wine city, the innovative basilichito or the typical bitter with artichoke or asparagus violet.

 

There are many specialties to accompany with drinks: fine meats, savory pies, stuffed vegetables, focaccia, pizza marinated, olives, cod fritters, green octopus, bruschetta with tomato or pesto, instead of culinary incenations for the enhancement of "the 4 d'Albenga". For those who prefer dessert, the typical baxin from Albenga.

 

Towards sunset it is advisable to reach the Viveri bridge (the "red bridge"), and be enchanted by the surrounding landscape. The mountains behind are the cradle for the sun that goes to rest while the Gallinara in front of it seems to pay homage to it and the river Centa below is the slight soundtrack of the moment.

The dusk shows Albenga in a new light, mysterious and fascinating.
