to Ventimiglia. OSPEDALETTI. 19. Route. 103
from Nov., 1887, to March, 18S8. — The chief promenades in this
quarter are the high-lying Via Wolfango Goethe (Pl. E, F, 2,1) and
the quiet Passeggiata Imperatore Federico (Pl. E, F, 2), by the sea.
A delightful drive (tariff, see p. 101) is afforded by the *Stbada
Beeígo or Corso begli Inglesi (Pl. A, B, C, 4-2), which diverges
to the N.W. from the Corso Matuzia and ascends the valley of the
Torrente della Foce. It then turns to the E. and, ftanked by beautiful
gardens, winds along the hillside. A little below the road is the fine
palm-garden of the * Villa Parva (Pl. B, 3; Baroness von Hüttner),
to which visitors are admitted on Wed. & Sat., 10-12 and 2-4 (i fr.,
for charitable purposes).
The Via Borgo, the N. prolongation of the Strada Berigo, runs
up one side and down the other of the Romolo valley, passing the
Madonna del Borgo (Pl. B, 1). It then runs to the S.E. to the white
dome-covered church of Madonna della Costa (Pl. C, 2), which is
perched on the top of the hill as the keystone of the oíd town. The
church is approached by alleys of cypresses and, like the Giardino
Regina Elena, beside the large Hospital (Pl. C, 2), commands a fine
view of bay and mountain.
From the Madonna della Costa the sheltered Via Barragallo
(Pl. C, D, 1,2) descends circuitously to the Viadi Francia(Pl. D, E, 2).
Excursions. A beautiful and easily reached point of view ia the (1 hr.)
''Madonna della Guardia (370 ft.; restaurant) on Capo Verde (best view in
the morning-, carr., see p. 101). The ascent begins at the Dazio Comunale,
about l3/4 M. to the E. of San Remo. The return from the church may
be made by Poggio (Albergo Poggio, etc.), a villaje noted for its wine.
The best view ia obtained from near the oíd tower above the village. —

(1210 ft.; inn). — A road leads through the charmiog valley of San Martino
to the (272 hrs.) prettily situated Verezzo, with the churches of San Donato
and Sant' Antonio. — To San Romolo (2580 ft.), a former herinitage, with
fine chestnut woods and villas, in the upper valley of San Romolo, a
donkey-ride of 272 hrs. (6 fr.). This excursión may be continued viá the
Colle dei Termini (J105 ft.) to the (O/s hr.) "Monte Bignone (4260 ft.; pano¬
rama of the sea with Corsica to the S. and the Maritime Alps to the N.).

N.W., via, the Piano del Re, to the well-situated village of Baiardo (2950 ft.;
two inns), whence we may return to San Remo via Ceriana (see above).
