It is a very storical, unique part of Albenga. Narrow streets and roman architecture were very impressive. The restaurants and bars full of people created a nice Italian atmosphere! There were also small markets of handmade things inside! We liked this place!

The well preserved walled city is a treasure trove of tall towers and awesome churches, and it also encloses countless restaurants, bars, boutiques, open-air art galleries and a unique naval museum displaying the rests of a Roman ship that sunk probably two thousands years ago carrying wine amphoras from the South

With a history going back to Roman times, the heart of Albenga is a great place for a stroll, a meal, a church and/or museum visit and a chance to admire the ancient architecture. There is plenty of everyday life here. The jury is out on how safe a place it is in the evening. The locals don't want to surrender their city to crime. Frankly, they have seen some in recent years. We feel quite comfortable here in the daytime. PErhaps in the early evening, we would head to a specific restaurant, since we know the streets. If you are a tad uncomfortable, confer with the locals, the tourist office and/or the police and make your own decision.

Our time here was very short but what a delight it is, with its narrow streets and squares - full of charm and character, Drawn to the imposing tower of The Cathedral of San Michele, we went in to view the large painted ceiling, Well worth the time. Wish we could have spent a lot longer here.
Delightful.

So the river moved and we don't have totally sandy beaches, but for the visitor this is nothing but positive. An intact medieval town center (including towers) provides an intriguing core, while the river bed provides a home for wild boar, and there is a Roman road (not straight) up to the next town, Alassio. An unpretentious and welcoming place, with lots to intrigue.
