Not far from San Remo (the finish of the classic Milan–San Remo cycle race) lies Ospedaletti; snug like a bug in a rug on the Italian Riviera. All of 7.3 km (via Padre Semeria and SS 1), to be exact.
Named after a 14th-century hospital that was established by the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, this is a gem on the Italian Riviera.
If you want a laid-back holiday, then this is it. The focus here is on nature-related activities such as jogging, walking, hiking, swimming and simply just to chill on the beach.
Mid-June to end-August is the peak season with many tourists flogging to this beautiful beach town. If you want to avoid the summer crowds, then rather go from the middle of May to mid-June – just before the schools close for the big school holidays. Or go early Spring, which is September.
As with most Italian beach towns, you’ll have to pay up to spend time on the beach.
…its fine, sandy beaches.
