Battle of the Flowers at Ventimiglia

 

1st Day

Afternoon arrival and check-in at the chosen hotel.  Dinner at the hotel restaurant and free evening to try your luck at the gaming rooms of the San Remo Municipal Casino.  Return to hotel and overnight stay.

 

2nd Day: Nighttime Parade

In the morning we invite you to visit Villa Pompeo Mariani, in Bordighera.  Here you will discover a magnificent villa that is home to many Monet paintings and includes the atelier and the park.

In the afternoon, stroll through the center of the town of Ventimiglia where you can shop among the elegant boutiques and cafes.  Starting at 9:30pm, you can see the nighttime parade of floats, with folk music bands and local food tasting.

Return to hotel and overnight stay.

Third Day: La Pigna

In the morning, we suggest an interesting visit to the lovely historical city center of San Remo: La Pigna still preserves the charm of a medieval village and reveals the unedited San Remo,composed of steep narrow streets, arches and buttresses, and quiet hidden  piazzas.  At the top of the old village sits the Madonna della Costa sanctuary, protector of sailors.  At the end of your visit, return home.
