Situated on the Ligurian Riviera, Bordighera's popularity with European visitors dates back to the arrival of the railway in 1872. The British in particular built numerous Art Nouveau-style villas here, many of which can still be seen along Via Romana, nestling in gardens of lemon trees, magnolias, agave plants and bougainvillea. The old town, with its winding narrow streets, has retained some of its fortified gateways.
