Albenga is nice for a daytime stroll but really wakes up at night as the restaurants open their doors. So much choice.

We rented a room here and strolled through the streets here for two days. This town is like a maze with small bakeries, bars and restaurants. Best thing is that it's a short walk away from the sea. I really loved this place!

Unluckily I didn't have much time to enjoy it, but the place is really beautiful, with a wonderful Cathedral, medieval palaces and lovely narrow lanes. It would deserve at least half a day. Unluckily the maintenance is suboptimal, with a little more care (and probably money) it would be fantastic.

We walked through the old city. Unfortunately many of the sites we wanted to visit were closed but that did not prevent us from enjoying the architecture. Whitebeard83

Spent hours walking around the historical centre. Lovely atmosphere and great choice of places to eat or drink.

For many years, we have enjoyed wandering the old walled city of Albenga. Its history goes back to the Romans. It is moving in both the right and wrong direction. On the positive side, there are many interesting shops and good restaurants. It is kept quite clean, and very good people live there. On the negative side, there has been an uptick in crime often attributable to foreigners. I assume the local authorities are taking this seriously, but one needs to be very careful here at night.

The center of the city will surprise you. It is a charming historical place with an interesting history. Definitely worthy exploring it.

Very atypical town in Liguria. There are no rocks, no mountains, no hills. Very Italian place with not so much foreign tourists with typical and authentic atmosphere. Lot of pleasant restaurants, fantastic ice cream and several supermarkets. There´s plenty of monuments and this town is magical notably at night! Old town is a fantastic place. I must say that bathing in the sea is by far not the best in Liguria but you get used to...If not, there is so much possibilities to bath in neighbor localities...

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!
