Alassio
Travel Guide

Examine the signatures of celebrities on an iconic wall, wander along a cobbled lane in the historic center and sunbathe on the beaches.

Alassio is a gorgeous strip on the Mediterranean Sea flanked by a sandy strand and green mountains. It runs along the Riviera di Ponente near the French border, in a region of spectacular natural scenery. Stroll along the glorious seafront and visit the many bars and restaurants here.

For a sense of the town’s origins and culture, wander through its historic center. Walk on the pedestrianized Budello di Alassio road, a quaint alley made of cobblestones. Encounter some of the main attractions, including the whitewashed Chiesa Santa Maria degli Angeli. This 15th-century church, which has an intricate rose window and impressive Gothic architecture, contains a museum of natural sciences.

Nearby is the 15th-century Parish Church of St. Ambrogio, which has a blend of Baroque and Renaissance touches. Inspect the range of important artworks, some of which depict the life of the parish’s saint. See the colored tiles of the iconic Wall of Alassio (Muretto di Alassio), which has been signed and marked by Ernest Hemingway and other celebrities. Inspect the many ceramic tiles to find signatures, handprints and pictures of your favorite Italian stars.

Spend the afternoon in the Marina di Alassio to view luxurious yachts. Dine on seafood at a nearby restaurant with a view of the sea.

Visit one of the many beaches during the dry, hot summer. The long stretch of sand that flanks the historic center comprises Bagni Giovanna, Bagni Nicade and Bagni Lido. September and October are fairly rainy, while July is warm and arid. Walk along the Molo di Alassio pier for excellent views of the region.

Find the commune on the western side of the arch of northern Italy. Drive east from Nice in France for 70 miles (120 kilometers) or a similar distance southwest from Genoa. Arrive at nearby towns on ferries and connect to the various municipalities via railway links.

View cultural sights and sandy bays along the stunning strand of Alassio.

"We stayed in this hotel for one night. The location is simply the best you could hope for in Alassio: right next to the promenade, but not on it, so that you can sleep.
