  • Do not forget a visit to the old town when going to Ventimiglia. There is a very beautiful Romanesque cathedral (and one Romanesque Church also at the other end of town. There are beautiful houses, ancient palaces. Not to mention a nice view on the modern Ventimiglia, the sea, and also the back country with its talons and his (even snow) mountains in the distance.
