What nightlife? That’s the question most people would ask, coming back from Pila. However, if you go out on a Friday night, you should find weekending Italians liven the place up. The resort of Pila has a very Italian flavour, with a range of shops, bars and restaurants to visit. Gallagher’s Irish Pub is probably your safety net. Though the idea of drinking in an Irish pub in the Italian Alps is a bit depressing. La Niche is the club of choice. Non-skiing activities include skating on the natural ice rink.
Adding Aosta into the equation gives you a lot more choice, as it is a proper town rather than a ski resort. Here you will find shops, bars, clubs, a cinema, theatre and lots of cultural events. You can also visit the well preserved Roman remains and a Roman theatre. The Old Distillery Pub is British-run and a popular place to go in Aosta. Bands and DJs produce a mix of music, which often results in dancing on the tables and jumping off barrels.
