Far less touristy than expected, most people there seemed to be locals or perhaps domestic tourists. No or little traffic in a town situated on a plain makes this place nice for children and elderly alike. Interesting roman and medival town, particularly the odd towers...More

We visit Albenga for a morning (taking the bus or train from Alassio) most years. The centre is pretty much all pedestrianized, and for us it's a great experience of being in a living, working town, which seems also totally medieval in appearance. The buildings...More
