Sanremo (San Remo) is a popular seaside resort in Italy, located on the Mediterranean coast. The former fishing village dates back to the Roman era, but is nowadays better known as an Italian Riviera holiday destination and as the host of the Sanremo Music Festival. There is a historic casino from 1905, exotic gardens, and the old town area which is still somewhat medieval. To visit these and other attractions, you will need to get hold of a car for hire in Sanremo.
The most popular tourist hotspot in Sanremo is the San Remo Casino, right in the middle of the town. Apart from the fun and entertainment inside with roulette and slot machines, visitors can also admire the imposing architectural structure. You must take a tour of La Pigna, which is the medieval old town area with 400 year old walls. If you get a car for rent in Sanremo, you can take a tour of other attractions like Villa Nobel, where Alfred Nobel spent his last days. Visit the Madonna della Costa sanctuary and take a break at one of the waterside cafes or restaurants along the harbor.
Giardini Botanici Hanbury or Villa Hanbury is the best place to see the famed gardens and flowerbeds of San Remo. Here you will find over 5,800 species. The botanical gardens were damaged in WWII, but have since been restored, and it is now a nature preserve. Do not miss the Roman road inside or the bronze dragon from Kyoto.
There is hardly a better place in the world for a scenic coastal drive with exciting tourist hotspots along the way. The best trip is the one hour drive to Nice, France on the A10. You can make it a more leisurely exploration of the Italian and French Riviera with stops at Bordighera and Ventimiglia, on the Italian coast, and in Menton, Cap d`Ail, and Reze, across the border in France. A stopover at Monaco, between Menton and Eze, comes highly recommended.
