  • Difficult at all in the older part of Ventimiglia. Nice to walk through this old town and its churches to visit, but there are nicer in the immediate hinterland of Ventimiglia overlooking old medieval villages such as Apricale, Bajardo, Pigna, Castel Vittorio Dolceaque, etc.

  • The narrow streets of the city remain cool in any heat. In the evening, very romantic illumination. On the square and nearby streets in the summer suit medieval shows, the market works, as well as an open-air theater, very cool

  • In France, for breaking the journey I stayed overnight in Ventimiglia. The town has a special charm, decadent and light together. An afternoon at the beach with bathing in clean water, then the evening at Ventimiglia alta, complete with a medieval festival. A road climbs to the town, easily accessible from the Boardwalk. Nice alleys, medieval/Romanesque churches. An unexpected surprise. Athena
