SAN BARTOLOMEO AL MARE
Numerous possibilities are in store for those who visit the Riviera dei Fiori in Liguria: beaches, sun, sea…or mountains, walks in the woods, medieval villages... On the Riviera of Flowers you will find all of these…and so much more!
San Bartolomeo al Mare lies at the centre of a wide bay, between Diano and Cervo Ligure, in a landscape dominated by the azure sea.
Our town is famous for its climate, the long sunny days, and its average of 300 fine-weather days a year. The average temperature in winter is 15°, and in summer 30°.
You can relax on the beach, explore the inland area with its old churches surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, or maybe practise a sport. There is a surfing and sailing school; various walking or cycling routes; and tennis courts and golf courses less than half an hour away.
There are also plenty of events to enjoy year round: the "Carnevale Dianese", the Infiorata del Corpus Domini religious festival, the Festival of Sanremo, the classical music festivals of Cervo and Rovere D’Oro, the Milan-Sanremo cycling race, the vintage sailing boat and motorised yacht meeting in Imperia, along with numerous other gatherings.
Another irresistible attraction is our gastronomy. Fish, vegetables, white meats and abundant aromas make up the ingredients of the Ligurian cuisine and the Mediterranean diet, which you can savour here in a simple ‘trattoria’ or a more refined restaurant.
