Ventimiglia train station

by mariosD

Hey there,

We are going to travel from Milan Centrale to Nice Ville by train (EC 143). According to the train route there is a stop in Ventimiglia train station. Since this station is in the borders of Italy and France do we need to change train at this station or not? Following the European railway site the journey is direct, but could you please clarify this for me.

Kind Regards,
Marios

While there is a nearly 20 minute stop in Ventimiglia, you will not have to change trains or otherwise get out of your seat.

Note that on trains, not all carriages go to the same place. I haven't looked at the EC 143, but you will want to make sure that your carriage says that it is going to Nice...I imagine most or all of them will...I should go find the website that tells you this (I saw it once)...

The only time (and this is really old) that you needed to change trains at a national (land) border in Western Europe was back when Spain had a different gauge track than the rest of Europe, so at the French/Spanish border, you had to get off the French train and on to the Spanish train...but I think that they changed the gauge size a long time ago (or made dual gauge trains, or both) because I don't think you do this any more (it's been a long time since I was in Spain)......

Unfortunately the times with changing trains are back between ES/FR.
Only "Talgo" type-trains go through. Few years ago there were also traditional sleepers and they run after changing boogies at the ES/FR border. The famous Moscow-Madrid sleeper car was one of these. It R.I.P. in 1996 and slowly but surely the long-distance international sleeper service in Europe goes the way of dinosaurs. Last year, for instance SNCF terminated all sleeper service, now they have only couchette cars running... Wonder, who's the next, probably DB.

I don't think DB will get rid of sleepers anytime soon. They are actually ordering more of them. They still seem to believe in Sleepers (and seem to be able to run them at a profit too).

Travel Tips for Ventimiglia

Balzi Rossi caves

by Tolik

Situated on the Mediterranean's Italian Riviera, just east of Menton and the French-Italian border, the caves are at the southern limit of the hilly massif of the Alps, which extends to the sea along the coast, separating the Italian territory of Liguria to the east from Provence and the basin of the Rhône River in France to the west. This particular topography meant that the Balzi Rossi caves were en route - as well as a convenient stopping point - for those who traveled through or lived in this region over the millennia. During the Upper Paleolithic period, the obstacle of the Alpine glaciers made a stop at the caves obligatory. The Gravettians (creators of the figurines) inhabited the caves, by their predecessors in an earlier Palaeolithic age and by their successors in more recent epochs.
Documents from the period and more recent discoveries confirm that the Balzi Rossi held traces of a long series of occupations: the caves were inhabited first by the Mousterians or Neanderthals over 35,000 years ago, during the Middle Palaeolithic period, and later by a succession of cultures - Aurignacian, Gravettian and Epigravettian, during the Upper Palaeolithic period.
The Grotta del Principe yielded a fragment of thing bone belonging to a pre-Neanderthal woman who walked erect. This is the oldest human fragment ever found in Italy. The famous 'triple burial', the skeletons of a Cro-Magnon adult male, girl and young boy, was discovered in the Barma Grande.
Between 1883 and 1895, Louis Alexandre Jullien discovered fifteen figurines at the Balzi Rossi. This is the largest series ever found in one place in Western Europe, and the pieces can be traced back to the Gravettian chronology and culture. Seven of the figurines were displayed in an exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Ottawa) in 1995.

Ventimiglia ~ The Italian Town Bordering France

by longsanborn

"Ventimiglia - Rivieria de Fiori"

I was in Ventimiglia, Italy, in May 2002. I ended up here because my train on route to Nice, France, was stopped at the border because the French railway labour union was striking. Due to this, the train from the French side did not arrive to connect with the Italian train system. My friend and I were informed that there will be a delay of a few hours. Instead of hanging around the train station, we decided to get some lunch and explore this town near the French border.

And what a lovely surprise we got. Ventimiglia is a beautiful town by the Riviera, facing the Mediterranean sea. After lunch, we walked around and discovered a local open market near the beach. There was also nice beach front for sun bathing and swimming.

Ventimiglia is a nice little town.

Berlecata Party 2002! - Bordighera

by mix76

Every year in Bordighera (Italy) there's Berlecata (Berlecata sounds like "licking my lips") party!

A little ancient town located on a hill near Bordighera is "closed". People can enter only paying a ticket (15 euro). In every square there are restauration points where people can take tipical foods (like tagliatelle al pesto, Pan bagnà, pane e salsiccia, etc.) and drinks (like wine or beers) all included in the ticket price.

There are many people in the little streets eating, drinking and enjoying the party!

Very very amazing! :)
