One Sunday morning, Sigi and I took the bus to Ventimiglia. It was pouring cats and dogs. We searched for shelter and conveniently ran into the first bakery in sight. Grabbed a few pastries and head out once the rain calmed down.
Ventimiglia is a popular destination during the summer for tourists spending their vacation along the French Riveira. Particularly popular all year with visitors from France is the Friday street market, which takes place along the seafront of the new town, and is a cause of major traffic congestion.
Not a good day for sight seeing but we had a good laugh, getting lost in the old town and being rashed by young Italian boys.
