Albenga is nice for a daytime stroll but really wakes up at night as the restaurants open their doors. So much choice.

We rented a room here and strolled through the streets here for two days. This town is like a maze with small bakeries, bars and restaurants. Best thing is that it's a short walk away from the sea. I really loved this place!

It is a very storical, unique part of Albenga. Narrow streets and roman architecture were very impressive. The restaurants and bars full of people created a nice Italian atmosphere! There were also small markets of handmade things inside! We liked this place!
