How to get to La Mortola? Its too far to walk from either Menton or Ventimiglia itself, so the infrequent local bus service from Ventimiglia terminating in Ponte San Luigi (the border) is the only means of public transport. Journey time little more than twenty minutes the six or so kilometers from Ventimiglia, falling a few kilometers short of the French Italian border.
Example of start times from Vetimiglia stop in the Via Cavour daily:
9.05, 11.05, 12.05, 13.25, 14.25, 17.05
9.30. 11.30, 12.30, 13.50, 14.50 - you get the picture.
Travel cost 1 euro 20 each way.
Take any spare time waiting for the bus to walk up to the charming old village of Mortola Superiore above the gardens
