With over 50,000 residents, Sanremo (also San Remo) is a relatively large coastal city in the Ligurian province of Imperia. Home to human habitation for several thousand years, the city became a prominent site of Roman beach houses and horticultural production – much the same as it is today. The Pigna is a part of town that has been built up around ancient walls that are still visible beneath loads of fresh laundry. Long an independent maritime state, the city boasts a quite large harbor that was recently granted Blue Flag status. Several Sanremo hotels are found within walking distance of both the old and new ports. The summer season can be very busy in Sanremo, cheap hotels being especially hard to come by in the central city during that time, though last minute deals can often be found.
Once home to a flourishing citrus trade, the cultivation of flowers has been centered here for over 200 years. The onion-domed Christ the Saviour Church is notable as a testament to the large population of Russian nobility that began wintering here during the 19th century. In fact, many of the palaces and hotels in Sanremo date from this era. Also from that era is the Sanremo Casino, a major destination for high rollers and those seeking discount hotels. Sanremo has many options that travelers can easily access using online booking services such as EasyToBook.com.
