Love the Riviera? Visit our online Travel Guide to Ventimiglia, Italy

It’s no secret I love Ventimiglia in Italy and have travelled there frequently over the last few years. When you have family that have lived for over 30 years in one of the most beautiful spots on earth, it’s a pretty easy decision to keep going back!

The Trip Guru is proud to announce the launch of a new site especially for travellers wishing to visit Ventimiglia.

Ventimiglia is quite simply paradise. One of Italy’s best kept secrets located 130km (81 mi) southwest of Genoa by rail and 7km (4 mi) from the French-Italian border.

With a population of 55,000, Ventimiglia is a popular summer destination for tourists on the French Riviera and very popular all year round with visitors from France for the famous weekly Friday street market along the seafront of the new town.


With accommodation much lower than nearby Menton, Nice and areas towards Monaco, Ventimiglia is a great base on which to explore the Riviera, with fantastic train access across Italy and France, loads of places to eat, decent shopping and plenty happening throughout the year. It also is home to what I think is the world’s best gelato!


A family friendly town, Ventimiglia is a great place to swim and enjoy the beaches, eat, shop, explore parts of the Riviera, stay during Grand Prix season in Monte Carlo, and a great train system for onward travel in Italy and France.


As a regular yearly traveller to Ventimiglia for many years, I hope this new site proves helpful and assists in planning your visit. And if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them below!
