If you want a nice day with a walk on the seaside with no cars and with a nice restaurant, stay on the motorway, pass SanRemo, at around 12 kms you'll find the exit for Arma di Taggia. Take it, go down to the Via Aurelia where, close to the seaside, you'll have the choice between going back to S. Remo or to Imperia. Choose the left turn - Imperia - At around 100 metres on your right, you'll find a tunnel going to the seaside (lungomare). Park your car and take the path on the seaside, remarkable because no cars and you'll reach a little center on the sea, stop for an aperitive outside the 1st bar near the church (cheap and with a lot of little nibbles), then continue on the seaside - now not anymore a path but a road with cars, 150/200 metres from the bar on your left you'll see the hotel-restaurant Svizzera ( Switzerland).
Unexpensive - a whole grilled sole for 15 euro - tables are outside when possible, it's quiet, no market, only locals, heaven!
And then you'll go back the same way so you can digest and feel like you spent a wonderful day out in Italy, far away from the crowds!
Contact for this restaurant - although they can speak a bit of French but no English at all - 039 18443152.
Hope you'll enjoy,
