LIMONE & SURROUNDINGS
The Flower Riviera, the Cote d’Azur and the Maritime Alps: a wealth of ideas for summer and winter holidays
Thanks to its very special location, in Piedmont between France and Liguria, Limone Piemonte offers an impressive variety of things to do and see during your stay. Aware that a page is not enough for describing this highly interesting area, we still want to give you a couple of ideas:
In the village
Occitan heritage blends in with the village’s typical shops, bars, restaurants, cinemas and discos.
Glamour and good life
Thanks to its strategic location, Limone Piemonte is a great starting point for one-day trips to the most celebrated destinations along the Flower Riviera (Sanremo) or the Cote d’Azur (Montecarlo, Nice, Cannes).
The Train des Merveilles
Experience the thrill of a trip along one of Italy’s most ancient train routes, connecting Cuneo to Ventimiglia and Nice. A 96 km breathtaking railway through unspoilt scenery and indisputably charming works of engineering.
The Roya Valley and the Valley of Marvels
There is more to beauty, in fact the Valley of Marvels also boasts 35 thousand prehistoric rock inscriptions. The Musee des Merveilles (Museum of Marvels) in Tende makes an ideal stop on an intriguingly mysterious tour.
Nature & Culture
Other must-suggest options include the Natural Park of the Maritime Alps, the National Mercantour Park, the Park of the Ligurian Alps, Cuneo’s historical centre and market, the Salt Route, Col de Tende Pass’ fortresses and military roads, the Alpine sanctuaries, the medieval villages of Tende and La Brigue, and loads of other wonders!
You will love getting back to your cosy flat and, if you wish, you could call at the bistro restaurant, the wellness area or the outdoor pool at Grand Hotel Principe.
