Alassio is one of the pearls of the Riviera di Pontente, a few kilometers from the border with France, the first town on the Riviera dei Fiori. Squeezed between a sandy beach and green hills, it is known for its beach of about 4 km, many clubs for young people and a beauty contest that lasted fifty years: Miss Muretto.

The most famous attraction is undoubtedly the colorful Muretto, born in 1953 from an idea of the owner of the historic Caffè Roma, Mario Berrino, who decided to decorate a low wall that bordered the public garden near his café with tiles decorated with the signature of famous people. Among the first signatures there was that of Ernest Hemingway, which was followed by more than a thousand over the years. In 1978, to certify the importance of the wall, the “statue of lovers” was placed by the sculptor Eros Pellini. This bronze sculpture is now the most photographed attraction in Alassio and is considered a symbol of the town.
