We had our appartement on the top of the stairs, they are kind of tough to get up but completly worth it. The streets are beautifull and the view from the top is almost breathtaking

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

Great walking visit to this old area of the town. Lots of climbing but worth the effort. Amazingly well preserved.

Beautiful exciting place to visit, especially for someone interested in history and buildings. Uneven cobbled steps so good footwear is recommended. The view from the top is breathtaking (almost as much as the climb there!) 😊

Should be a pleasant and interesting historic area to walk in. Unfortunately one or two locals keep their dogs loose on the streets. Near the top of the town an aggressive dog ran up barking snarling and jumping to try and bite me. It was...More

Old medieval part of Sanremo dating from 1500s. Lots of cobbled steps and winding streets. Wear good shoes!! Worth exploring and discovering little piazzas and small restaurants hidden away along with the odd boutique. Not for those with walking difficulties.
