The old city gets eclipsed by the seaside streets below. Definitely the most interesting and authentic part of the city.

Just stroll, enjoy the alleys, the flower pots in the small yards. Walk up the hill and you get a lovely view over the surroundings.

The old town of Sanremo is lively and authentic. Tourists are welcome but optional. Well worth a stroll and perhaps a visit to many small businesses that have been around for generations. Unlike the mass market and high end shops on the Main Street, these...More

Incredibly narrow "vicoli" between dilapidated buildings, gives a flavor of the "true Sanremo" with tiny shops and small restaurants - including good ones like Ipazia and Porta Verde

Talk a walk through the maze of old streets, alleys and squares. A visit to the food market is a must. This is the real heart of Sanremo.

The piazza itself is lively. And with cafes and restaurants and shops. The market Hall is quite ugly from the outside. Inside there is the usual stalls with fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat ans specialities like olives and oil. Not very big, and a little disappointing...More

Interesting old part of San Remo. Very steep so wear strong shoes. History boards and walking route information are dotted around to help you. We went on a Monday morning in February and it was lovely and quiet. Views are great. Recommended.

It is a dedalus of uphill narrow alleys and streets. It should be visited with daylight, since lately it became the "lieu " of refugees traffiching with faked leather goods. Bea & Gianni Novelli Geneva, Switzerland
