  • Skip the attitude

    A spectacular location on the water makes La Baragghina a popular choice. The food is no better or no worse (but more expensive) than other Castiglioncello restaurants. Eat here only if you can stomach their snooty attitudes, which all the waitstaff seemed to share. They act as if you are privileged to dine here, not that they welcome your...

Castiglioncello Nightlife

  • Need a coffee?

    In Castiglioncello this main Cafè is considered like a meeting point. It's atmosphere is quite elegant with a classic style. You can go there at every hour, but of course in the evening is better to watch new people, especially in the summer. Most of people that you can find there use to wear coat and tie but I think that it's not necessary!

  • Dancing, people watching, eat and drink

    I was there just twice becuase I don't like dancing and this kind of music, but I noticed that the atmosphere is not bad, many young people, two places idoor and outdoor where to dance, and especially on saturday they are many V.I.P. !The disco close at 4 a.m. People use to go there in elegant dress but it's just to show what they have to other...

    Castiglioncello is a little village so the best way to stay around is by feet. You can reach every beach and if you want to go out the village it's easy to rent a bicycle or a car if the distances are big.

    Sometimes when I go to the beach I'm sure to be safe form the sunburn, but if you have a skin too white and tender, remember to buy a sun cream before going to the beach!

Castiglioncello Tourist Traps

  • Azhut's Profile Photo

    by Azhut Written Jul 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the summer time Castiglioncello is full of tourists, especially during the week end. This village is very little so there are few parking places (one quite big is close to the Castello Pasquini, another one is located close to the Station).

    Unique Suggestions: If you nedd to go to Catiglioncello during the week end, you could find a place for your car if you decide to arrive there early in the mornig. But the best way to not have parking places problems is to arrive there during the week!

    Fun Alternatives: A smart alternative is to choose to come there by train, or after renting a bycicle!

  • PAREI

    For this summer to buy and dress a Pareo is a must, so don't forget to choose yours between many fantastic colours. You can find your pareo in every open-market. In Castiglioncello we have a big open-market every monday morning.

  • It's very smart thing to have it!!

    Maybe it's not esay to remember to take a cap with you when you go to the beach, but I can assure you that it's always good to have it, especially if you decide to spend a morning on the beach or to have lunch on it. The sun is very dangerous for your head between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

    During the week you should decide to go surfing. The best place where you can do it is to the Quercetano. There when is very windy it's easy to fing very big waves. Go there for surfing only if you are used to practise this sport.
