The history of Royal Hotel Sanremo:
The Royal Hotel Sanremo, owned by the Bertolini family since its foundation by Lorenzo Bertolini in 1872, has preserved all its old-world atmosphere down to the present day. Ever since the Belle Époque, Sanremo’s Royal Hotel has been a favourite haunt of European aristocrats and financiers, artists and royalty, leading lights of culture and Nobel prize-winners. The Rotary Club of Sanremo, the 26th to be created in Italy, was founded here in 1931. The hotel was restored to its former splendours after the Second World War, and its restaurant Fiori di Murano opened in 1947. The following year it became one of the first hotels to open a seawater swimming pool, designed by architect Giò Ponti, in its delightful subtropical gardens. In its endeavours to constantly provide impeccably excellent service and ensure the satisfaction of its patrons, Royal Hotel Sanremo has always been careful to cultivate its image. Improvements introduced in the last five years include the Royal Wellness Center and renovation of its rooms and suites, conference hall and common areas.
When to go:
Lying in the north of Italy, within the Liguria region is the popular tourist destination of Sanremo. While much of Italy hosts a fairly idyllic climate, conditions in Sanremo are particularly enjoyable due to its proximity to the Mediterranean and where it lies in the forefront of the Maritime Alps. In places throughout the world where mountain air meets sea air you are met with an enviable microclimate as the crisp winds from the mountain peaks intertwine with the refreshing coastal breezes. The Liguria region as a whole is in a unique and peculiar position, with the whole region seeing a variety of different conditions prevailing due to the effect of the mountains that cross the area. Sanremo is a year round popular destination due to this enviable climate, with winters seeing average daily temperatures of about 10º C and summers bring temperatures of about 26º C. It is not entirely uncommon for temperatures to rise over 30º C, though on the whole temperature extremes are pretty uncommon across summer and winter, due to the moderating affect of the Mediterranean Sea. Like a standard Mediterranean climate, rainfall occurs predominately in the winter and autumn months, Sanremo is no exception- rainfall is generally at its highest in November and stays fairly constant throughout winter before dying off almost completely by the end of Spring. By summer, rain is fairly scarce. The best time to visit Sanremo is throughout summer, where you can really get involved in all the beach side activity that takes place, the promenades are alive with activity and the markets are bustling with bargains and interesting finds. Summer brings average highs of 24º C to 28º C, with July and August brings the hottest days. Minimums come when the winds off the water blow through the region, normally bringing low temperatures of about 21º C to 23º C, perfect for outdoor activities. While summer temperatures are the best, the remainder of the year hosts very enjoyable mild conditions. You may be caught in an odd shower from October to December, but there certainly isn’t a shortage of things to do whilst you wait for the rains to pass, the world famous Sanremo casino, built in 1905 is just one way you could pass the time.

Visitors of the French Riviera are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking their destination for a day trip to Italy: Ventimiglia (the shortest hop across the border) is for the lazy tourist and for those who have little time, inland villages such as Dolceacqua and Apricale are catering to people who seek something radically different from the French beach resorts, while Albenga provides a good impression of densely atmospheric, medieval Italy. But of all possible destinations, Sanremo is possibly the most rewarding, not least because it has a little of everything, combining it into an attractive mix and serving it with a unique style and raffish charm. Sanremo, is sufficiently different from most of the resort towns on the other side of the frontier to justify the trip on the grounds of cultural curiosity alone. It is as elegant as Cannes or Antibes, but less self-conscious and less stuffy and generally down-to-earth in the typical manner of the Italian Riviera.
Sanremo, once a place where members of the Romanov family and other crowned heads spent their sunset years, may have lost some of its international luster, but Italians still consider it the most “chic” of their domestic resorts. In Italy, the town is famous for its annual Festival di Sanremo (a music festival), a competition whose style and format are said to have served as the blueprint for the Eurovision Song Contest.
There are also many unpricey family restaurants which are not in business to fleece visitors but because their owners actually enjoy the idea of making food and serving it. If you come from the French side of the frontier, you may already have forgotten that such places do exist. Moreover there is a great architecture. The building fabric in Sanremo’s Old Town (called La Pigna) may not be, strictly speaking, medieval but the narrow street patterns certainly are and can make you feel claustrophobic enough. These are just some of the reasons that make it the best Italian day trip you can take when visiting the French Riviera. […]
