Impressions of Sanremo Italy

Royal Hotel Sanremo Italy 

Impressions of Sanremo, the best kept secret along the Italian Riviera that feels like a time-capsule from the 1950s. Step back in time with the amazing Royal Hotel Sanremo, part of the Leading Hotels of the World. This grand-dame of Italian luxury hotels used to the one of the favorite hang outs for the jet-set and movie stars like Birgitte Bardot, Alain Delon, Gina Lollobrigida and Marcello Mastroianni. With a free-flowing sea-water swimming pool designed by Italian designer Gio Ponti, the Royal Hotel Sanremo is one of our favorite places to visit along the Riviera. A serious contender to The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d'Antibes, especially when it comes to old school authenticity, something that is getting harder and harder to find along the Riviera.
