This street has everything - all the essentials, plus tempting food, shopping for those with bulging purses or more moderate means. Wandering down it is always a pleasure.

A long winding road packed full of all sort of shops and bars. Every time you walked it you found other little treasures in some of the small alleys that suddenly appeared to the left and right of this road.

In this section of the old city, there are some interesting stores to visit while in Alassio, in addition to restaurants, gelato places, coffee bars, bakeries (pasticceria) and candy stores. The area offers a variety of things to see. Definitely worth it!

Nice walking street with plenty of stores. Most of them are apparel ones, with some original stuff (not the tipical touristy spot)

Alassio has a ton of bars and shops to wonder about along the narrow cobble stone streets. The shopping is a bit up scale but here is something for everyone. One point o remember is that most of the shops close from 12:30ish to 3:30-4:00....More

You can find all sorts of fun stuff here- great food, clothing, boutiques, and gifts. Nothing is open to early in the morning during the winter though.
