How to reach the project location

Cruises of the Cetacean Sanctuary Research (CSR) are leaving every monday from Sanremo, Italy

Boarding is in the harbour of Portosole, Sanremo (Imperia), where our boat, “Pelagos“,  is moored. Sanremo is a small town located along the Italian Riviera, a few km from the Italy-France border. It can be reached by train, by car, or by plane.

The information below must be considered as indicative, and alternative travel options do exist.

Once you arrive in Sanremo go to the harbour Portosole at the address: Via del Castillo # 17.

The research boat is usually moored at peer B # 22.
