We visited for the Friday Market on the sea front. This is a very big market selling everything from leather goods to food. Worth going out of you way to see. The town itself is also delightful, with many places to eat, a covered market...More

Many people go to Ventimiglia for the shopping, and forget to look across to the old town. Crossing the footbridge that spans the river as it joins the sea, you walk up following the signs to the cathedral, passing several smaller churches as you climb...More

...it’s filled with cheap imported crap. But the regular everyday market is worth a visit for some cheese, meat, arancini etc. Also the town centre, within 500m of the train station, has somehow managed to maintain an air of authenticity. Beach is rocky and too...More

Went to Ventimiglia on a day trip by train from Nice. It‘s a nice old part of this small Italian coastal city.

Fantastic location just above the new town and along the coast from Nice. Proper earthy Italy with some very friendly locals and stunning architecture!

We travelled from Nice by train and headed for the Old Town across the bridge where we found a wonderful beach with restaurants and cafes to sit at and admire the view. Definitely worth the visit.

If you want Italian style with realistic prices go to Ventimiglia, so Italian, so beautiful. The restraints in the old town or the sea front are wonderful and the prices are not like Monaco only 20 minutes away. Style and class

Note that the old town of Ventimiglia is tiny. Very tiny. Still it's worth of seeing and climbing up 200 meter of uphill (huh). Picturesque place - and quiet especially if you compare it to the noice and traffic in the new town of Ventimiglia....More

Hi, yes, the market is only on Fridays. It is a small town, so anywhere is walking distance. There are a lot of holiday appartements right in front of the beaches, many good restaurants around. But with kids of 10ish, I... More

September 19th is Tuesday, as far as I can see. The Friday market starts approximately at 9 a.m., maybe even earlier, as they have food there, too - local cheese and ham, spaghetti, olive oil, etc. I guess it's true that... More

There is plenty of parking just outside the Old Town. Best to park in the Square which is just near Ventimiglia Marina near promenade. Hope this helps.
