The nightlife at the Lago Maggiore focuses on Arona, there it's the most lively and exuberant, with piles of cafes, restaurants and night clubs. You can choose from those with the view at the lake or hidden ones, but whatever you choose you'll surely have fun!
Lago Maggiore Jazz Festival: Music on the lake
There are many ways to spend the night on Lake Maggiore. In winter you can go to a pub with live music or to a discotheque. The best discotheques are 'La Rocca' in Arona, 'La Selva' in Ghiffa and 'Sandokan' in Gravellona Toce.
When the summer comes... the Fiesta begins!! Thanks to the good weather many events take place. One of the most important is the 'Lago Maggiore Jazz Festival'; squares, parks, lake-fronts become stages for the great performans of Afroamerican music like blues, gospel, jazz, Latinoamerican music. The admission is free and I saw George Benson, Chick Corea, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Miriam Makeba and one of the last concerts of Tito Puente. A pretty good program, isn't it?
