Is there any market on saturdays? or only on fridays? if so is it worth a trip from nice?
Re: ventimiglia market
Sorry, it's open only on friday year round, whatever weather.
It starts at 8.00 A.M. and stands begin to close at 4 P.M.
Nice is close, the market in itself is huge and extremely colourful.
If you drive to Ventimiglia, remember to park along the coastal road, about half a mile out of town, otherwise you are locked in a tremendous traffic jam.
Travel Tips for Ventimiglia
Three cities of Ventimiglia
Really it would be better to say to meet the three cities of Ventimiglia. The first one, archaeological, of Roman epoch is put in it oriental departs of the modern city and it is an example of museum to open sky.
Tall on the fortress the medieval Ventimiglia dominates the Right Bank of the Roia River. It is distinguished from far because of fits mighty enclosure of boundaries, his cathedral of Assunta, the baptistery to octagonal plant and the convent of the Canonichesses lateranensis.
Between these two rises modern Ventimiglia. In the center city elegant buildings with their eclectic style, furnished shops, tourist services, hotel and place for fun, beaches, promise holiday boredom.
Each Friday, for over 50...
Each Friday, for over 50 decades, traders and bargain hunters have flooded into Ventimiglia at dawn, creating chaotic traffic jams for the Carabinieri to sort out. Shoppers flood down from normally quiet parking areas along the side of the river and are accosted almost at once with informal stands of cheap Taiwanese toys laid on blankets on the pavements. The market is vast: it stretches almost all the way along the shore, the center of town is cordoned off and the quiet park is filled with covered stalls. But, big as it is, there’s a lot of repetition, stalls with identical stock at identical prices are dotted throughout. Clothing makes up the bulk of what’s on offer; cheap and cheerful linen, silk and cashmere ladies wear, and low-cost underwear (although there’s nowhere convenient to try it on). The highlight is the range of leather handbags, travel bags and shoes, and the more expensive the item, the greater the chance of haggling a better price. The Italian Riviera is famed for it’s flowers, and here you can buy the real thing, or magnificent silk replicas. It’s also worth trying the superb fresh pasta available here.
Ventimiglia, Pearl of the Floral Riviera
Ventimiglia is a tourist and commercial town on the North Western coast of Italy (Riviera dei Fiori e.g. Floral Riviera) and a very important railway and road junction because of the near French border. It is also an agricultural and floricultural market.
The area between San Remo and the French border is one of the mildest in Italy. The wonderful climate favors the growth of tropical and exotic plants coming from all over the world. The route gives the possibility to watch plants, which you cannot watch in other parts of Italy within wonderful natural scenery.
The exotic flowers and fruits (just think that it is the most northern place where bananas ripen) will stay forever in your memory. Adding to this you can visit the interesting and unique prehistoric caves.
