Some historical facts:
Sanremo was discovered in late 1800’s by British and Russian nobility who used to spend winter months in this garden of paradise for it’s microclimate. Giovanni Ruffini was an Italian patriot exiled in London and thanks to his novel “Dr. Antonio” this particular place - situated along the Western Ligurian Coast - became known to a vast public. The book narrates the love story between Lucy (English) and Dr. Antonio (Italian) in which the author vividly describes the mild climate of the Italian Riviera and it’s most fascinating places worth discovering. We can still find the remains of numerous English houses that were built between the 1800’s and up to end of the 1930’s in San Remo, Bordighera, Ospedaletti and Taggia. ‘English Avenue’ ( Corso Inglesi ) runs along one of the most dominant, exclusive resdential roads of Sanremo. It was so named because of the numerous English owned houses that are still found there. Today Sanremo is a famous Italian tourist resort also known for it’s International Music Festival, it’s mild, gentle climate and it’s wonderful position between the French border and Genoa. The untouched medieval villages in the hinterlands are also worth visiting. Names such as Triora, Carpasio, Bajardo, Pigna, Apricale and Seborga – all described by Ruffini - have kept their otherworld charm intact . A situation which has unfortunately been lost among many coastal towns . One of the most recent major attractions is the 24 km ( 15 miles ) bicycle and walking path between Ospedaletti and San Lorenzo al Mare. An enjoyable way to keep fit and take in the beauty of the coastline. Rent-a-bike stations are found along the tract. A worthy mention for those wishing to visit the French Riviera - the Principality of Monaco/Monte Carlo is just a half hour drive and the Nice International Airport is less than an hour away.See my holiday home 89389 on HomeAway Holiday-Rentals
