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

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.
