Need a Quick Escape?

Feeling Stressed Out or Burnt Out? Here is a quick remedy without having to fly across the pond.

When a weekend trip to Italy just isn’t possible, relish the next best thing during Harbor Nights at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. Set under the twinkling lights of the picturesque Harbor Piazza, Harbor Nights invites locals and visitors to enjoy the starlit sights, sounds and flavors of Italy without leaving Orlando.

Included in the event’s entrance fee are an array of wines and gourmet foods, which are placed at stations throughout the piazza. The delectable dishes range from classical Italian favorites to more adventurous dishes that will electrify your palette.


And as if the fabulous food and wine wasn’t enough, the evening is made that much better with the addition of charming musical performances. Dance the night away to dreamy jazz and romantic crooning.  Be sure to keep an eye out, because you just might see an opera singer booming from one of many balconies overlooking the piazza.

Upgrading to Harbor Night’s VIP experience is a must. During a recent visit, we were treated like royalty as we were sat at our own table for two, just a stone’s throw from the stage. We had the option to visit the food stations within the VIP area and beyond, but with the VIP experience, top-notch servers catered to our every whim, making it hardly necessary to leave our seats. Servers kept my Prosecco glass full and brought a constant barrage of delectable small plates.


There simply isn’t anything to rival Harbor Nights in the Orlando area. Combining ambiance, food, music, and scenery in a way that excites every one of your senses, Harbor Nights is truly a romantic experience that every couple needs to experience at least once.

Want a romantic night out? Harbor Nights takes place seasonally throughout the year, so be sure to find out when you can transport to Italy for your next date night.
