Ten Travel Destinations You Must See At Night

Longer stays. Overnights. Night touring. It's why Azamara voyages are for those who love travel. After all, why travel all the way to an exotic destination only to leave it before the sun has set? Since a picture is worth a thousand words, we searched Instagram for these incredible photos of our favorite cities to experience after dark.

Venice, Italy

Evenings in Venice were made for wandering. Enjoy a sunset gondola ride, take in the live music from cafe orchestras at St. Mark's square, and stroll down cobblestoned alleys that lead to dead ends. The city is quieter, mysterious and charming at night.

St. Petersburg, Russia

If you visit St. Petersburg in June, you'll experience the famous "White Nights", when the sun only sets briefly and city streets bustle around the clock. But as this photo shows, the city can be just as beautiful at dusk.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Just like Venice, Amsterdam's canals and bridges make it a beautiful place to visit at night. Enjoy a late dinner, explore the city by bicycle, or people-watch from a sidewalk cafe to soak up the ambiance of Amsterdam in the evening.

Stockholm, Sweden

Bangkok, Thailand
