How to get to Sanremo
We were surprised when we learned about the existence direct train "Moscow - San Remo". True, the prospect of shaking in the car for almost two days scared away. If you are not afraid of such methods of transportation, I inform you that the seat in the compartment cost about 13 thousand rubles. We preferred the flight, alas, not cheap - our tickets from Moscow cost 30 thousand each, but, according to reviews of more successful people, you can catch budget options. Unfortunately, there is no airport in a small town, but you can fly to Cuneo, which is 66 km away, Genoa - 144 km, or French Nice - 56 km.
We landed in Nice, and then traveled by train, which was not very convenient, because there are few direct flights. But every hour trains depart to Ventimiglia. Companions turned out to be fellow travelers on the train, and they suggested that A trolley bus to Sanremo leaves from Ventimiglia every 15 minutes. These movements cost about € 7 for the train and € 2 for the trolleybus. Having arrived at the scene, and having told about our ordeals in the Mediterranean to the neighbors in the hotel, we learned that the distance from Nice to Sanremo is easily overcome by taxi in just 1 hour and € 300.
Acquaintance with the city
The city of Sanremo is located in the center of the Italian Liguria and together with Genoa, Spice and Savona makes the Italian Riviera. The French border is only 25 kilometers away.
The climate of the Riviera is eternal spring. Moroz here, of course, does not happen, but the exhausting heat does not tire. The usual weather for these places is 24 degrees during the day, many sunny days. Sanremo is located in the bay, between Green and Black Cape, and from the rear is protected from weather trouble by the Alps.
The mild climate and wonderful landscapes at one time attracted Russian aristocrats and royalty to Sanremo. This popularity has contributed a lot to the prosperity of the resort. In the XIX century, members of the imperial Romanov family loved to spend the winter there. So, in honor of Alexander II's wife, Maria Alexandrovna, the Embankment of the Empress is named. Alexandra Feodorovna, the wife of Nicholas II, also loved to rest in San Remo. The royal family of the resort were presented with palm trees, decorating the embankment so far. In 1913, the Romanovs erected the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, a vivid example of the Moscow architectural style with tiles, stone carvings and bright domes.
When the resort became popular, the Empress of Austria with the courtiers, the composer Tchaikovsky, the inventor Nobel, the artist Claude Monet and other celebrities recovered their health here. That the high-ranking guests did not feel any inconvenience, hotels of the corresponding class were built - "Royal" and "Grand Hotel de Londres".
San Remo meets the scent of flowers - this is the first impression. Sight and smell rejoice from bright colors and breathtaking smells, the sun heats gently, and the sea invitingly splashes on the sandy-pebble shore. Attractions of the garden city are considered bougainvillea - flowering shrubsgrowing everywhere. Sanremo often hosts flower fairs, bouquets are sold at every step. Magnificent roses cost here € 10, but you hardly want to buy them, because around the botanical garden there are flowers in every house, in squares, streets. Lianas wither the walls of houses, framed windows and doors. In a word, everything that can be removed by flowers exudes the aromas of eternal joy.
Sanremo is a modern fashionable resort with boutiques, cozy restaurants, comfortable hotels, well-kept parks with lush vegetation, a famous casino and a constantly festive atmosphere. The ancient city center and its heart - the district of La Pinia with intertwining narrow streets, stairs and courtyards. The city, which has only 50 thousand inhabitants, is roaring with cars and scooters, luring the smells of restaurants, sweet songs and interesting shopping (a couple of useful tips for those who will make purchases in Italy).
What is this city?
San Remo is a fairly well-known Italian resort town located in the administrative area called Liguria and belonging to the province of Imperia. Since this place is popular among tourists, it is surrounded by flower galleries almost everywhere, it is sometimes called the city of flowers, and it is truly picturesque and full of amazing aromas.
Sanremo became popular in the nineteenth century, when representatives of the highest strata of society began to arrive here literally from all over the world. But this city is still in demand and is actively developing, offering tourists a variety of entertainment.

The climate of Sanremo is pleasant and mild, and you can relax here year-round. In the summer there are 24-27 degrees during the day and about 18-20 at night (in the winter 10-15). In the daytime it is absolutely not stuffy here, and in the dark it is not cold, but it blows in a pleasant coolness. The place is well defended, so there is almost no strong winds here. There are some rainy days, the sun pleases most of the year.
What to do in San Remo?
What to do when arriving on vacation in Sanremo? Interesting activities for every taste abound:

What is worth seeing in Sanremo?
Sights worth seeing:
- The villa of Nobel himself, which every visitor is simply obliged to visit. It is beautiful and interesting.
- Christ the Savior Cathedral, which belongs to Russia.
- The cathedral of San Siro and the square next to it.
- Villa Hanburi with stunning beauty of a botanical garden.

Advantages and disadvantages
Let's start with the positives:
- The majestic mountains are located near the city, and if you wish, you can go to these places on a tour.
- A large number of interesting places that are worth seeing to any self-respecting tourist.
- This is a very beautiful city, a trip to which will give aesthetic pleasure and a lot of pleasant impressions.
- Everyone will find something to do: entertainment options weight.
- Mild climate. Arriving here, as if you are in the eternal spring: warm, fragrant, tender and flourishing.
- A large number of hotels.
- Sea: warm, clean.
- Quite reasonable prices. Of course, the costs can not be avoided, but if you aim to save money, you can arrange a budget holiday. In addition, in private shops and markets actually bargain, and if you find an approach to the seller, you can reduce the initial cost by 5 or even 10%.
- Navigating through San Remo is quite possible on foot.
- The beaches. There are many of them, but most of them relate to the territory of hotels and, accordingly, a fee is charged for entry. In addition, although all sites are equipped, some are not of the highest quality. And also there is a road between the hotels and the coastline, so it’s not always convenient to get there. Clean beaches are located in the outskirts.
- Although the city is small and fairly quiet, there are a lot of cars and other vehicles.
- Probably a large influx of visitors in the tourist season. And since the territory is small, a crowd of people can be significant and discomforting.
If you decide to visit sunny Italy, go to the beautiful and so different city of Sanremo.
Entertainment in Sanremo
The pearl of the center of San Remo - casinoThe initiator of the construction of which was the wife of the Prince of Monaco. Casino is a municipal enterprise, therefore all revenues are sent to the city budget. The art nouveau building was built in 1905 with the money of a local banker. The casino has become a symbol of the city and a landmark of Italy, bringing huge profits. Frequently say that nowhere else can one lose the state with such chic. But there are also good luck - the last big winner of € 350 thousand went to an unknown lucky man not so long ago.
Nevertheless, players are more often comforted by the “points” issued by casinos for frequent visits and lost money. When a lot of "points" accumulate, the player receives as a gift, for example, a car exposed at the entrance. True, this bonus can only be received by a veteran casino who has been playing for several decades. We were told that luxury cars in the parking lot can be rented "only" € 6,000 per day. An interesting proposal, but we decided to walk on foot.
In this place of the coast you can watch the regattas, retro rally, tournaments in tennis and fashion shows. Every day at dawn, a flower fair opens - the largest in Italy.
Walking through the old San Remo like everyone without exception. Medieval La Pigna was designed to protect citizens from militant Saracens, this explains the location on the mountain, the winding narrow streets and the abundance of arches. There is a historical museum in the fortress near the seaport, and more recently, about 15 years ago, there was a prison here. The house of the Nobel scientist, surrounded by a magnificent garden, the Cathedral of San Siro (XII century), the Palace of Boreas d’Olmo (XVI century) are the tourist attractions of San Remo.
We visited "Royal 5 * Lux" - a luxurious place, which we remember more than once, while spending short days and nights in domestic hotels. Modern building of the end of the XIX century, without false luxury. The embodiment of good quality and comfort: high ceilings, a huge bed, an incredibly spacious closet, immaculate bathroom. If you want to know what a five star hotel is, stay here. All on the highest level: Hotel cosmetics, towels, conscientious cleaning and maintenance. Around the garden, there is a pool with heated sea water, grottoes and waterfalls.
We took a few photos in this paradise, realizing that we would hardly have to live here. "Royal" is unlikely to appeal to young people, but for respectable people who are not inclined to violent amusements, this place is perfect.
These are not all hotels in San Remo - there are very modest and medium. But the main rule - the service always corresponds to the stated starry. So don't be surprised at the small pool or the absence of a bar in a three-star haven. We lived in "Paradiso" и остались довольны этим симпатичным отелем. Рядом парк, стандартный номер, бассейн, хорошее питание, милый персонал. Огорчали дикими воплями чайки, особенно на рассвете. Но тут уж ничего не поделаешь — море рядом.
Отзывы туристов об отелях Ривьеры не отличаются разнообразием: всё нравится, а некоторая сдержанность в выражении чувств объясняется не слишком демократичными ценами.
«Слабое звено» курорта. В Сан-Ремо песчано-галечное побережье, пляжи оборудованные и платные. Берег разделен на участки: отельные, платные и городские пляжи. Эти «загоны» нравятся далеко не всем, особенно в сезон, когда много отдыхающих. You will not be able to walk along the surf line for a long time, because very soon you will hit the fence. Alas, a beach holiday in Sanremo is not the most wonderful in the world. The best beach is Lido - it is clean, sandy and located far from the city center and port.
San Remo is a great place for a relaxing holiday, leisurely walks, breaking up money in a casino and enjoying music during festivals. The flowers, parks and gardens of this city are truly magnificent!

Russian Church or Orthodox Church of Christ the Savior (Chiesa russa di San Salvatore)
The temple was built 100 years ago at the request of the Russian people, who so actively visited San Remo in the 19th century. Or rather, the idea came to the head of Prince Sergei Mikhailovich. He was supported by the tsarina Maria Alexandrovna, the wife of Alexander III, who often visited San Remo. By the way, she donated palm trees to the city, which were planted on the promenade, and in gratitude for this gift, the promenade was named after her. Palm trees are still growing there. But back to the ornate temple. It is made in the style of churches of the XVI century, has 5 domes, an octagonal bell tower and an iconostasis with copies of icons by M. Vrubel. The temple is active and services are maintained in Russian.
