Lonely Planet review
Non-Catholic churches are rare in Italy, so make the most of this multicoloured classic which was built for the Russian community that followed Tsarina Maria to San Remo in 1906. The Russian Orthodox church – with its onion domes and pale-blue interior – was designed by Alexei Shchusev, who later planned Lenin's mausoleum in Moscow.
