Ventimiglia is a small coast town on the Italian Riviera with both a historic and a newer center. It was the first city I visited in Italy ever, visited back in 2001. In 2002 and 2008 I just dropped off there for half an hour or so to change trains on the way to nearby San Remo and took some additional pictures. Ventmiglia is a border town to France so many French people go there, as alcohol in Italy is even cheaper than in France. Ventimiglia is called Vintimille in French. There are some beautiful buildings to see, but overall it is a sleepy small town.
