A mild climate all year round, the marvellous sea, beautiful flowers, centuries-old palm trees and wonderfully exciting events.
For over a century, during the month of March, the Granfondo San Remo – San Remo la “Classicissima” bicycle race that opens the season of the great classic competitions has been held in this beautiful locale.
Participating in the Granfondo San Remo – San Remo la “Classicissima” race you will have the chance to challenge yourselves on the roads of the longest line race in the World, but if you wish, you can also take advantage of the event to have a sporting vacation in San Remo.
The brand new Bicycle Path that goes along the sea following the course of the old train track will allow you to reach a unique environmental area with unspoilt inland areas dotted with lovely medieval villages, where you can discover fascinating and challenging routes.
