Sanremo Weather & Climate Charts for Travelers

sanremo italy

by James Martin

Sanremo is a famous seaside resort city in the Imperia province of Liguria about 20 miles from Italy’s border with France. It’s know for its casino and Annual Italian song festival, Festival della canzone italiana di Sanremo, held in February.

The flashy life in Sanremo is easily escaped by a quick stroll through a gate that takes you up the Pinecone, La Pigna the locals call it, through the somewhat gritty medieval section of the city to the Madonna della Costa Sanctuary, the symbol of the city from which you have fantastic views of the lower town and port.

The good news for potential visitors to Sanremo is that the summer isn’t normally terribly hot, and the temperatures, even in January are quite moderate. Let’s look at the historic climate of Sanremo.

  • Genoa’s Port and Medieval Alleys [982]

    Genoa was made to be seen from the Mediterranean and entered by sea. The best way to arrive is to take a ferry boat ride from the harbor or arrive by cruise ship.

    There used to be hundreds of bakeries up and down the coast of Italy, and in America too, that baked sea biscuits.
