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.
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.
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.
The Absolut Ice Bar at the Nordic Sea Hotel is a nighttime favorite in Stockholm. But if you feel like warming up, try a cozy pub for beer and traditional Swedish food.
Enjoy dinner with a view. Restaurants along Bangkok's Chao Praya River will provide temple views, like this photo. Or take in the whole dazzling city from a rooftop bar.
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Night markets, bars and coffee shops are all popular places to spend a night in Ho Chi Minh City. Street food is popular here. Be prepared for the aromas of grilled meats and fragrant soups to tempt you away from formal dinner plans. Don't leave without trying authentic banh mi, the popular Vietnamese baguette sandwich.
In Sorrento, your favorite way to spend the evening just might be watching the sun set. It's impossible not to fall in love with the relaxed ambiance, quaint streets and stunning panorama of this part of Italy.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cabo is famous for beautiful beaches and a lively nighttime scene, making an overnight stay there a must.
Late-night and overnight stays in Barcelona are a must if you want to experience the city like a local. Most restaurants serve dinner from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Enjoy cava wine, tapas and churros while you're here.The photo above is of a church, perched on Mount Tibidabo. The mountain provides stunning views of Barcelona and the surrounding coastline.
Sydney Harbour is so stunning, especially at night!
Now there's just one question: where will you go next?
