San Remo lies on the Mediterranean coast of western Liguria in north-western Italy. It was founded in Roman times and is now best known for being a tourist destination on the Italian Riviera. Its old town is called La Pigna and is characterized by perched houses, steep streets, covered alleys, and little squares - just a glimpse of the Medieval times. The modern town turned a village of fishermen into an elegant, world-wide famous seaside resort. Nowadays San Remo welcomes tourists and visitors all year round and entertains them with shows and numberless amusements. San Remo is famous for its Casino which was built in 1905 and is the undisputed realm of green cloth, roulette, and slot machine lovers.
The Euro (EUR), the currency of the European Union, is the official currency of Italy.
