The town lies on the inlet between Capo Mele and Capo Santa Croce. To the north, the center is surrounded by the peaks of Mount Tirasso.
Not much is known about the origins of the settlement of Alassio: it was a religious center owned by Benedictine monks. During the Renaissance it became an important trading center, thanks to trading operations with countries beyond the Alps and the Mediterranean.
Alassio overlooks the Ligurian Sea and resides a short distance from the Alpine belt. This location makes the climate favorable and temperate throughout the year.
In addition to the famous “Miss Muretto” competition, Alassio is known for its soft and fine sandy beach and for the historic center, consisting of a long walking avenue full of shops and restaurants.
Let's not forget the “Muretto” designed by Mario Berrino in the 1930s, who decided to renovate the wall of the public gardens with ceramic tiles. In one of these there is also the autograph of the American Ernest Hemingway, who often frequented Alassio.
The town's economy is mainly based on tourism, both summer and winter. The Riviera di Ponente is very sunny: a climatic advantage that brings many tourists to Alassio even during the cold months.
In the surroundings, a good amount of Ligurian olive oil is produced, with a very delicate flavor. Alassio is also part of the "chocolate cities" club thanks to its "kisses".
Many restaurants and trattorias on the seafront offer traditional dishes, such as linguine with pesto, the king of the regional cuisine together with other types of pasta such us ravioli and trenette, typical Ligurian delights.
It is also worth mentioning the Ligurian focaccia, in various versions. Among the wines of the Riviera we have the white Vermentino, the Pigato and the dry red Ormeasco.
