Downtown San Remo

San Remo is one of the last towns on the Italian Riviera before you get to France. It has great views of the Ligurian Sea and nice beaches. San Remo was famous as a spa and health area in the 19th Century. Lots of Russians, other Europeans and Americans flocked to San Remo. If you tire of the beach, San Remo also has a casino and lots of trendy shops. San Remo also boasts lots of flower gardens, hotels, good restaurants and an abundant nightlife. The people, like almost every Italian I ever met, are very nice and friendly (still get an occasional e-mail from a friend in San Remo). I look forward to my next trip to San Remo.

Attractions?

Each year there is a song festival at the Ariston Theater (see my tip).

The Beach

Of course one of the main attractions in San Remo is the beach, and the scenes of the sea.

    Hello Jim, I'm hesitating between visiting again the MET museum and exposing myself to the bed bugs in NYC! Nice to read you liked the old continent and San Remo.
