Getting There

By Train -- There are trains almost hourly to and from Genoa (regional: 2 hr., 20 min.; high-speed: 2 hr.), and two to three trains per hour connecting with San Remo (13 min.).

By Bus -- Riviera Trasporti buses ([tel] 0184-592-706; run every 15 minutes between San Remo and Bordighera (20 min.). Buses also run between Bordighera and Ventimiglia.

By Car -- You can take Autostrada A10 between Bordighera and San Remo, but the coast road, S1, is almost as fast. In fact, there is such a contiguous line of development along the route that you won’t know where one town ends and the other begins.


Visitor Information

The tourist office is at Via Vittorio Emanuele 172 ([tel] 0184-262-322; fax 0184-264-455). It’s open Monday to Saturday 8am to 7pm and Sunday 9am to 1pm (closed Sun Oct–May).

Festivals & Markets

It’s a sign of the pleasant nature of this resort that one of the major annual events is a humor festival, held in late August/early September. Stand-up comics perform along the streets and seaside promenade, humorous films are shown, and general merriment is presented. Thursday morning’s market fills the Lungomare Argentina, with stalls selling a bit of everything.
