Sea, history and art are the key words to organizing a visit. There is a big historic area and so many wonders to be seen
Three very particular beaches (Balzi Rossi, the Eggs beach and Calandre), an archaeological site with a museum of national importance (Balzi Rossi) and a villa on the Mortola promontory with a paradisiacal botanical garden (Villa Hanbury): these are the keys to organizing a visit to the town.
A stone's throw from the border with France, visit the archaeological site and the most exciting museum in Liguria: the Balzi Rossi caves with rock incisions that are unique in Italy, set in the cliff sheer over the sea, where men lived 25,000 years ago. Let yourself be enchanted by Villa Hanbury and its splendid botanic garden in an enchanting position, where Mediterranean and tropical plants coming from all over the world cohabit in perfect harmony.
In the heart of the medieval town, the stronghold of the Dukes of Ventimiglia, not to be missed are two religious masterpieces: the Assunta Cathedral, which with apses and the baptistery from the year 1000 constitutes one of the most significant examples of the Romanesque in Liguria, and the 11th-century Romanesque San Michele Church. The imposing sixteenth-century palazzos along Via Garibaldi, the former Civic Theatre built at the behest of Sir Thomas Hanbury, which houses the Aprosiana Library, the loggia of the Parliament in the Provenšal style, the oratory of the Neri, complete a visit to the medieval town.
Among events held in Ventimiglia are the famous Battle of flowers, Medieval August accompanied by drummers and standard bearers, and the big Friday market, which is popular with French and other tourists. Box: Ventimiglia beaches When you visit the Balzi Rossi caves don't miss the adjacent beach of flat pebbles placed among the rocks.
The sea here is particularly beautiful; its sloping sandy seabeds are very popular with scuba divers. Nearby is the Eggs beach, called this way because of the oval pebbles that characterize it; privately managed, it has sun beds and beach umbrellas.
Don't miss the Calandre Beach, a couple of kilometres from the centre of Ventimiglia: soft and golden, with a cliff covered with vegetation, on windy days it is frequented by surfers. You get to it on foot along a charming and well signposted path through scented Mediterranean maquis.
