From historical buildings spread out over three ancient zones up the works of art in the different churches. It will be lovely to wander aimlessly down the narrow streets, see patches of blue sky above ancient and very high houses, go into and come out of the old part of the town through its gates.Let us take you for a stroll through Sanremo’s Medieval heart (La Pigna - the pinecone, after its shape), and then discover the wonders and scents of the 0-km fresh food market. Finally get to know the 19th and 20th century resort which still attracts monarchs, the nobility, the high rollers, and celebrities worldwide.
