Ventimillia is fun to go to if you like big outdoor flea markets. Every friday there is a market that sells lots of knock off clothes and bags, sun glasses, jewelry etc... You can take the train there and it is a very pretty ride. On the other side of the bridge there are exspensive fish restos and I have not found the food to be great.

The town itself and its main shopping streets are nice. There is a lot of nice stores for clothes, food and liquor, which is cheaper over the border than in France. There is also a vegetable/fruit market.

I am sure if you looked for a place to eat in the main town you will find better quality and more authentic Italian fare.


Do go, it's worth a one time visit for sure.
