Sardinian has a pretty laid-back nightlife unless you head to the chi-chi bars located in Costa Smeralda, but for most of us tourists we are contented with just having a sundowner which is then followed by a good dinner. The locals in Sardinia also have a dynamic musical culture which has had significant influence from the numerous invaders over the past centuries, forming something entirely new yet with hints of other cultures. The best place to experience the Sardinian music is at one of the countless festivals that take place in the region throughout the year.
