Pompeiana lies between the cities of San Remo and Ventimiglia. The French Riviera is about 25 km away. In this area you will find many wonderful medieval villages to visit such as Pigna, with its numerous small mountain lakes, and the 1,000 year old ghost town of Bussana Vecchia, which today is home to the “Community of International Artistists”. Almost every day, somewhere in the vicinity, there is a good market. For example in San Remo, Oneglia and Bordighera and on Fridays there is the largest market in Italy, in Ventimiglia. In summer the villages organize open-air events with music, dancing and lots of local delicacies. Pompeiana itself has a small supermarket, a good restaurant ('trattoria'), a pharmacy and a garage. A few kilometers away lies San Remo with its famous casino in the center. In addition, San Remo has many venues, both in the city center and along the coast. For nature lovers there is the vast "Alpi-Liguri", a beautiful nature reserve through which flows the Roya River. Here you can hike to your heart's content or go rafting, canoeing, horseback riding or cycling. On the coast you will find many surf/sailing/diving schools and vast boulevards with sunny cafes, restaurants and clubs.
