We took a special bus (not the local one) to get to the garden, less than 30 minutes from the train station. (limited time schedule) to be coordinated with your return.
This place was spectacular. We were given a small booklet which explained step by step different corners of the garden and the origin of the plants or trees.
There garden is well kept and maintained. Being on the top of the small mountain, you have to be in a relatively good shape to do it, but I didn't have any problem to reach the ocean and slowly walked back taking pictures and breaks occasionally. A place to visit if you are in Ventimiglia.

Right after we crossed the bridge, we saw the difference of scenery, we turned right and started climbing toward the church and walked to all the possible small streets . Every person we came across said the world well known :Buon giorno'' Ciao for the younger ones. We took a lot of pictures, the view of the port and all the stairs in between the houses.
It didn't take that long to discover a clean little village, nice people and great scenery. A place to see, for sure.

I can only say positive things about this place. They are very fond of their job and justly proud of their specimens. Working with an extremely skilled know-how, their nursery is probably the one in the area where you can turn to for the best species, service and counseling, when cactus are the issue. Worth a visit anyway

This beach is much worse than the pictures lead you to believe... its really hot with no respite from the sun and the wicked undertow can really be dangerous to small children and adults alike... the smell of weed in the air is not from the bamboo canes... will not miss this place at all! The hike to get to the beach is the best part while the limited services once you arrive are not up to standard for such a place... highly overrated and not recommended for young families!

The Balzi Rossi caves are located between Menton in France and Ventimiglia in Italy.
When we arrived at the museum, it turned out that you only could pay with cash, not with a bank- or credit card. Entree fee was only a few euros per person, but we did not have cash on us at that moment.
Because we wanted to see the "caves", we went back to the car and out of our way to find a cash machine nearby.
Back at the museum, the "caves" were really a disappointment, just shallow holes in the wall with an overwhelming smell of bird-excrement.
The "caves" are special because they have been used as prehistoric shelters, and this story is what the neighboring museum is trying to explain. Unfortunately, most of the descriptions are in Italian only, so quite useless for tourists.
Since the entrance fee is only a few euros it does not hurt to visit the caves, but in retrospect it certainly was not worth the trouble of finding a cash machine and coming back.
BTW, if you just want to have a peek at the caves, you can do so from the road that passes them. For free. See the pictures.

The church is just a part of what the old part of Ventimiglia has to offer. This church is very old and parts date back to the time before the Romans. Now the church is restored but in a ristic style. you can see some of the old remains they have found while restoring the church.

Every Friday, the market stalls overtake the streets close to the sea.
Plenty of local produce, as well as clothing, shoes, electronics, gadgets, household fare.
A fair bit of repetition, with lots of stalls selling the same merchandise at the same prices.
Also lots of one off sales people peddling hats and sunglasses from suitcases along the streets but not via stalls.
For bargains, go visit but don't expect top quality.

Its not often you can wander about real roman remains. Architecture is not my strong subject but I found it really interesting.
There are some areas that could do with restoration as it looks like it is being neglected.
Very quiet and a good place to reflect and take a time out.
