Marina di Ragusa by Night
By now, the nightlife in Marina di Ragusa, has become well known. Every summer evening is a source of entertainment for thousands of young people who get together to drink or eat something in the numerous bars that are enjoyed on the Marina waterfront. A great factor to increasing tourism was the renovation of the port of Marina, in 2009, the restoration done in an elegant white stone “dell’lungomare of old” (as it was formerly called, and is still well defined, although the restoration was only recently completed in 2010).
This has, in fact, become an ideal location for a great night: from the port to Piazza Duca d’Aosta the new street spreads, with the buzz of waves in the background and fine and elegant mansions that overlook the shore, as well. Many of the establishments that alternate on the waterfront bars, creperies, and clubs are literally besieged by young people. Most recently, the late night music allows for the drink and dance to go until the early morning hours. It should be emphasized, that inside the Marina, the large parking lots, even during crowded times, ensure available space for evening traffic.
If you love nightclubs you can find a wide variety of them. Each tends to organize different theme nights throughout the summer, some of which are celebrated directly on the beach.
Marina di Ragusa is an ideal location for families: the beautiful sea will not get boring to the children, and in the evening, the waterfront Andrea Doria is host to all kinds of events, in addition to the constant presence of dozens of stalls full of toys, candy, even earrings and necklaces in hard stone for the more self-indulgent ladies.
