Sanremo railway station is situated in the Italian city of Sanremo.

History[edit]

It was opened on 27 September 2001, with the opening of the new double-track line between Bordighera and Imperia, which is a deviation of the Genoa–Ventimiglia line, built mainly in tunnel. The new station replaced an old picturesque station on a single track line that ran along the shore.

Overview[edit]

The platforms

The San Remo Station building contains a ticket hall, waiting room, information office, kiosk and bar. The entrance building is connected to the platforms built in a tunnel by a long corridor, equipped with a moving walkway. Travel time is approximately 15 minutes. The station has two platforms connected by an underpass.

As Sanremo is an important tourist destination and a significant source of commuter traffic, the station has substantial traffic. All trains stop at the station. Most trains are regional or express; some are InterCity trains. The most frequent destinations to the west are Ventimiglia and Nice, and to the east Imperia, Savona, Genoa. It is directly accessible from Milan (about 3½h), Turin (about 4hr) and Rome (about 7½hr).
