The visit can start from the "Budello", the narrow street that crosses the center: opportunities for shopping, an aperitif or a romantic dinner. A stone's throw away is the beach, ideal for children: you can bathe without fear of drowning because of its sloping bottom. Not to be missed is a visit to the Alassio Wall, symbol of the City of Lovers. Very British villas appear on the hill among parks of exotic and Mediterranean plants.
It was the English at the end of the 19th century who adopted Alassio as a tourist centre, as highlighted by three locations: the Villa della Pergola Park, which can be visited by appointment, the former Anglican church, which has become a venue for events, and the Hanbury Tennis Club. Alassio is animated everywhere by restaurants, clubs with live music and a disco with music and trendy DJs, much loved by young people.
Here they produce Alassio's Kisses, sweets that make a holiday even more inviting. The beach, set of a film by Vittorio De Sica starring a child, is still popular with families: those who have been there since childhood come back married and with children. The quartz and silicon sand conquers so much that it entices the municipality to organize "Sand Castles", a challenge for young and old and now a must-have event of the summer. For children there is the beautiful adventure park Solleone, on the heights of San Bernardo. Alassio also has a well-equipped marina: Marina di Alassio, suitable for mooring yachts up to 35 meters (source: lamialiguria.it/).
