Sanremo: tourists to the Imperatrice 1933
In the 1930's Sanremo experienced the apex of its tourist success, of that in the old style. One of the obligatory stop-overs for the tourists was the corso Imperatrice. The seafront promenade, which runs along the railway line, took its name from the czarina Alexandrovna who during her stay contributed with a generous donation to beautify the city with numerous palm trees which are still present.
Walking along the Imperatrice one can see all the most luxurious hotels in the city and the historic bathing establishments. It is possible to meet musicians along the street and during the summer to enhance the walk there are market stalls.
The style of the Corso Imperatrice is still unique, from the flowerbeds and palm trees , symbol of the city and a breathtaking view of the sea, which extends from the old station to the Franco Alfano gardens
