My first stop in Italy is a town called Ventimiglia. I read a glowing review about this place on tripadviser and as it’s the first stop inside Italy I can begin using my EUrail pass to travel about.
Ventimiglia is a relaxed little place compared to the cities I’ve visited so far. The house I was staying in was again in the old city (up by the church you can see in this photo) which -according to my host – is “owned” by the Mafia! I didn’t see any Mafioso’s lounging about but apparently one does not do business in the old town unless your connected.
