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.

It's like a big surprise to see this much characteristic medieval city right inside a modern city center. It's like two difrent nested cities, one hiding inside an other. Impressing experience to strolling down tiny amazing medieval streets of la pigna and many chance to...More

Had read some dodgy reviews online about the 'Old town' but why, I have no idea. It is indeed a climb up the 'pinecone' but the spectacular panorama at the summit is so worth it! Beautiful church at summit and beautiful gardens, as I remember....More

Lots of climbing but worth it. The local maps are not great - we got lost going to a jazz concert but a local man was very kind and brought us there.
