When in the western part of Sanremo one will not fail to see the big white building in Liberty style, as the Art Nouveau was called in Italy. Two small towers at the front, arched gates on the ground floor, culumns on the upper floor. A work by a French architect from 1905, when it was started more as a German-style 'Kursaal' with theater performances, concerts and some hidden gambling on the side.

Sanremo was by then one of the most popular destinations for affluent people of Northern Europe, and since in the neighbouring French Riviera, especially at Nice, Cannes, Menton and most famously Monte Carlo there had already been casinos, Italy finally decided in 1927 to legalize the so far only tolerated gambling at Sanremo.

Casinos (an Italian word meaning 'small house') were started in Italy with a Casino in Venice already as of 1638. Today the country boasts a casino still in Venice, another in the resort of St.Vincent in the Aosta Valley and the one of Sanremo. The fourth, and once one of Europe's largest, had to close due to bankruptcy in 2018: the Casino of Campione in an Italian exclave in Switzerland, its end probably due to the fact, that a few years before Switzerland had started to legalize the so far forbidden casinos.

Very nice building. Can go in to see the inside of the building if you don't want to play. Quite reachable and very close to Ariston Theatre which is situated in Giacomo Matteotti Street. 10 minutes walk

I discovered this beautiful building whilst sightseeing in San Remo. I’d highly recommend looking out for it as it is surrounded by an array of opulent buildings. Sorry I did not enter the casino as I was not dressed appropriately!

This is an absolutely dreadful casino. I have been to many in vegas, europe, reno and missisippi so im a bit of a casino conniseur. Strict unhelpful staff when you come in you are greeted by slot machines which have apparent low limits such as 1c and 5c but you had to bet about 10 to 50 credits on these. After realizing that these machines were just swallowing your money i went upstairs to main casino machines. No good service, unhelpful and burly staff and sitting at machines they too just swallowed your money giving no returns. This is not what casino machines elsewhere do in other reputable casino cities. The machines must be set to 1 per cent payout i wasted 100 euros in minutes. Silly me but i will never be back and would never recommend here. No drinks service or food comps you pay for everything. A ticket of a few euros got caught in a machine and when i pressed the button for help no one came, but they were able to announce the closure of the casino. They will only be helpful when you go to cash desks to withdraw more money from credit cards. Avoid at all costs please.

As my driving licence was being renewed I needed to get from Nice airport to San Remo via public transport. This was the easiest way to do it :

At nice airport take free shuttle bus to terminal one if u need to
At bus station take the 23 bus from 'platform' 6 to St Augustine train station. This costs €1
Buy ticket to San Remo (cost
€8.90) changing at Ventimiglia. The train departs from platform one. For some reason the direction and end of the Train is Ventimille but this is the same as Ventimiglia. The train took 57 mins all along the coast.
I Then took a train to Savona from platform 2 which stops at San Remo. 3rd stop I think after about 20 minute journey

This was a very easy journey as the busses and trains seemed to be very regular.

A few years ago I had the opportunity of visiting the San Remo Casino for the first time. I have always enjoyed the region and the boardwalk along the sea.Although like a lot of places in Italy you have to be careful of getting short changed in restaurants, I was not prepared for the Casino I went with my wife and toured around looking for a machine to start playing. My wife pointed out a man was following us and looking at him I also noticed from the second floor balcony was a security guard who appeared to be in conversation with this individual. When I questioned if there was a problem my wife and I where told to leave and were escorted to the door. At that time the guards standing at the door had quite a few more disrespectful comments. I have often written to the Casino asking for an explanation, I think I will have to wait a long time.
However now a days they are not the only gaming places in the world.
It is too bad because we have not and will never return to San Remo and we will tell all our friends to stay away, it might have been a nice place 100 years ago but....

No poker, black jack, roulette tables. Just loads of slot machines. Not really a casino.
Very busy, has its own smokers section, can't really tell what that was like as we did not go in.

The place looks quite imposing and impressive from the outside but once you walk through the door you are going to be disappointed.
We walked inside and turned left passed the security and all we could find were slot machines, and more slot machines, hardly anyone playing but lots of machines.
We'd been told this was the biggest and the best casino in Italy, all I can say is the others must be pretty dismal.
We walked around trying to find a bar or restaurant or at least some gaming tables but to no avail, so we asked a security guard where the gaming room was, he didn't understand till I mentioned 'green tables' then he understood. He directed us down a corridor, thru a door and up some stairs. We followed his directions only to be told at the top of the stairs we have to go back down and get a ticket, so we did. we had to show our passports and have our photos taken just to get in, then back up the stairs to the gaming room, well sort of a gaming room, I have seen more life in a morgue. We stayed 10 minutes and left, we have seen better and more entertaining casinos in small town Australia than here at Italy's biggest and best.

This casino it’s nice just if you look the building from outside! Because inside it’s totally different : 1. If you want to enjoy whit slots machine is impossible to win and if you have a lot of money and you know the machine you cannot win BECAUSE THERE ARE“empties machines” and specially in the Roulette table you can see strange number.. 2 or more table where in the same time goes out the same number!
in this place the gambling it’s not correct!!
You can lose a lot money because it’s irregular!
I NOT SUGGEST THIS PLACE
100% IT’S BETTER TO GO IN MONTECARLO AND ITS NOT FAR FROM SANREMO!
