We went there as our hotel was nearby, but it's a very small church with not much to see. It is awaiting some renovation…

It is an impressive building. You must sea it if you visit Sanremo. The building is nearby The Casino. There is beautiful view there. There are also shops and restaurants near there. It must be seen if you go to san remo.

Completed in 1913, this impressive Russian Orthodox church is dedicated to the Saviour and Saint Catherine. It was modelled after Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.Sanremo was promoted to the Russians by tsarina Maria Alexandrovna who had spent a winter in this sleepy resort in 1874.Very beautiful outside and inside. Really recommend to visit .

The Russian Orthodox Church is located near the Hotel we stayed at, Hotel Paradiso, the architecture of this Orthodox Churches with their Onion tops is unusual, you have to pay 1.00 Euro to get inside the church, it is entirely different than a Christian Church ... so go and educate yourself and take a look, very interesting

It's pretty on the outside, and it's nice inside, but nothing you would regret missing if you don't go in. Besides, it's being restored and it's really small inside.

Interesting to find a Russian church in Italy until you learn a bit more about the region and its history. Very interesting and small church worth the walk.

Located on an important street near the train station and the center of town, the pleasant looking facility is certainly worth a visit especially for those with little experience looking at Orthodox churches. San Remo apparently has a long history of attracting northern Europeans including Russian and Poles which explains its importance.

This church was the first thing to see while walking from the parking towards town centre. The church is very nice from outside and the interior a bit less (that is common for ortodox churches).

Typical Russian tiny church with actually many pieces of Art, Christmas is the best time to visit and enjoy. The necropolis is not to be missed
