As a university city Pisa is full of life. Its center is full of all sorts of meeting places: pubs, restaurants, pizzerias, inns, aperitif bars, discos and live music bars.

Along Lungarni or next to the streets of Piazza Garibaldi, you can stopping off for the classic aperitif and a chat in one of the many bars packed with students.

During the summer pisans usually escape to the seaside: the hotspot of entertainment is the Versilia Coast in towns such as Viareggio. The other two nearest seaside resorts are Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia, just 10km ride from the city centre, with a reasonable amount of bars and discos to pass the night away.

In winter the nightlife is mostly concentrated in the old center of the town, near the University, in pubs and bars.
