Casino Sanremo


Sanremo, also spelled San Remo, is a popular resort town on the west coast of Italy. Sanremo is known for its casino, but there's much more to see.
 
  1. La Pigna, the Pinecone, is the oldest part of the city. La Pigna's tiny street and covered alleyways wind up the hill to the gardens and sanctuary at the top. Some of the historic buildings, churches, and squares have been restored and there are signs posted telling about them on the tourist itinerary.
  2. Madonna della Costa Sanctuary, on the hilltop above la Pigna, can be seen from most places in Sanremo and is a symbol of the city. A beautiful cobblestone mosaic, dating from 1651 leads the way to the sanctuary. The sanctuary dates from the seventeenth century and the dome was erected between 1770 and 1775. Inside are an ornate altar and organ and beautiful paintings and statues from the 17th to 19th centuries.
  3. Russian Orthodox Church was finished in 1913, when Sanremo was a popular winter destination of Russians. It's similar to the church of San Basilio in Moscow.
  4. Gardens are found in several places. The Gardens of Queen Elena are on top of the hill above La Pigna. The gardens of Villa Zirio, Villa Ormond, Villa Nobeland Palazzo Bellevue are on the east side of town, close to the Porto Sole.
  5. Sports: There are several tennis clubs, bicycling, two harbors, a public swimming pool and beaches for swimming.
