bus trips from San Remo

We are visiting San Remo at the end of September and intend using trains and buses, and would like to visit villages in the hills north of the town. On our last visit 12 months ago, we had difficulty finding exactly where we could go, and all we managed was a trip to Ventimigila. If there are bus routes into the hills, which places are worth a visit? We are concerned about going somewhere and not being able to get back due to the number of buses on that particular route. We would also appreciate any tips on which are the best train destinations to take for days out.

Current bus times at www.rivieratrasporti.it/OrarioEstivo2013.pdf - the index is at the back. The same u.r.l. will probably work after September 15 if you change the estivo to inverno.

Buses worth taking into the hills from San Remo are to Triora, spectacularly sited with a mildly interesting witch museum, Baiardo/Bajardo (alternative spellings) spectacularly sited with very extensive views across the Mercantour Alps and the sea (visibility permitting) and an earthquake ruined old village and church on its summit but little there otherwise, and San Romolo which has access to nearby woodland walks and is also a good place to start very beautiful longer hikes to Baiardo, down to the coast to Bordighera or to the pretty hill village of Perinaldo which has its own infrequent (as they all are) buses down to Vallecrosia fto connect with a San Remo bus.

From Ventimiglia, Linea 7 goes into the hills (but mostly at valley-bottom level) to beautiful Dolceacqua, to impressive Apricale (infrequent, but the downhill walk back to pretty Isolabona in the main road is easy) and to interesting Pigna and up to Castelvittorio.

Anywhere on the coast is easy by train. Maybe consider Albenga for its small ancient historic centre, and Finale Ligure for a pleasant seaside old town by the station at Finalmarina and its walled older town of Finalborgo a short walk or bus ride inland.
