Sanremo, served primarily by Genoa Airport, is located on the Italian Riviera in north-west Italy, nearby to the border of France. The city is in a great location to explore both countries, so make sure you hire a car and get on the road.
Whilst here, take a walk around the Old Town and then enjoy some relaxation in one of the many gardens. After a delicious meal at one of the restaurants here, stop by the Sanremo Casino for which the city is well-known for a night of entertainment.
Places to Visit in Your Hire Car
If you want to stay in Italy, you can take your pick from the nearby selection of National Parks and fully enjoy the countryside. The edge of the Mercantour National Park is by far the closest and has many kilometres of walking paths to explore. Make sure you take your hiking boots and a picnic and have a wonderful day out.
You can also plan a trip to the city of Turin, which is 2.5 hours north of Sanremo. Here there's an old Roman town packed full of restaurants and shops with some historic buildings, such as the cathedral, thrown in for good measure.
If you fancy experiencing a different culture, why not head into France for the day? Nice and Monaco lie just over the border and are wonderful places to visit.
