Set on the Riviera dei Fiori in Liguria, San Remo lives up the name of its location with a number of enchanting gardens. The oldest section, called La Pigna ( the Pinecone) is a pedestrian-only neighborhood that invites strolling. If you want, climb to the Madonna della Costa Sanctuary at the top, for stunning views. Or visit the Russian Orthodox Church constructed along the line of Moscow St. Basil’s to serve the Russians who flocked here in the early 20th century. That waterfront is lined with cafes and restaurants ideal for lunch or people-watching.
