Bordertown Ventimiglia once harboured a stoic Roman town known as Albintimulium, which survived until the 5th century AD, when it was besieged by the Goths. These days it's besieged by a weekly horde of French bargain hunters who cross the border each market day.

The rocky beach makes for a pleasant dip, though the the real draw to Ventimiglia is exploring its medieval district – set on a hill across the river from the modern part of town.
