Shopping
On Fridays there is big market in Ventimiglia from early morning to about 14/15. A very good tip is to park near Coop and walk the last bit. It's chaos down in the city itself ☺. In Ventimiglia you will also find a very nice food-marked every day in the mornings and until about 13.30. Vegetables, Ham, Cheese, Pastery, Win and more. Very nice!
