We visited for the Friday Market on the sea front. This is a very big market selling everything from leather goods to food. Worth going out of you way to see.
The town itself is also delightful, with many places to eat, a covered market and plenty of interesting shops.
The train station is in the centre of town, an easy walk from the shops and markets. We took the train from Antibes in France.

Many people go to Ventimiglia for the shopping, and forget to look across to the old town. Crossing the footbridge that spans the river as it joins the sea, you walk up following the signs to the cathedral, passing several smaller churches as you climb the narrow lanes. It is another world, with few tourists. Locals drinking coffee in their little cafe, a few shops and magnificent views of the mountains greet you as you get to the top of the town. Here you find a maze of tiny courtyards and alleys, tunnels and ancient stores.

...it’s filled with cheap imported crap.

But the regular everyday market is worth a visit for some cheese, meat, arancini etc. Also the town centre, within 500m of the train station, has somehow managed to maintain an air of authenticity.

Beach is rocky and too much litter.

Went to Ventimiglia on a day trip by train from Nice. It‘s a nice old part of this small Italian coastal city.

Fantastic location just above the new town and along the coast from Nice.
Proper earthy Italy with some very friendly locals and stunning architecture!
