Bocce clubs used to be considered démodé, a place where retirees gathered to play cards, drink, socialise and play bocce. Recently, though, they have been embraced by younger generations, many of whom are attracted to their throwback appeal. Housed in a former railway station, La Balera dell’Ortica offers plenty of space for games and dancing, and you’re bound to see people of all ages letting their hair down.

Time Out tip: Avoid the uninspiring restaurant at the bocce club and come instead for a night of games and dancing, particularly in the summer when the clubs hosts an outdoor disco.
