Very often on my way from Milan to Cotè D’Azur I was asking myself – “how do they look, this small Italians cities that are located almost at the same French Riviera but in Italian territory between Genoa and border with France? What I really didn’t expect is that I’ll find there the most beautiful sea shore of Italy – beautiful town Alassio! It’s only my third day here but after work days, crazy vacation in Ibiza and around ten weddings in August this is the best thing could ever happened to me!
5 km of white and clean sand (all beaches are private and you need to pay to enter but it’s worth it) and perfect sea in September! Mild and comfortable climate!
It’s definitely not luxury vacation, it’s just normal vacation to enjoy the life!
They have very beautiful and long seafront where you can walk, run or use bicycle!
If you want to travel a little bit you can to French Riviera and to visit a lot of beautiful small cities. Just one hour and you are in Monaco!
Restaurant are just amazing! One is better then another! Italians! 🙂
So all the components of my favorite easygoing vacation came together in Alassio: sea, climate, sand, long seafront, tasty food and opportunity to see something new!
