Ventimiglia PanoramaVentimiglia PanoramaA panoramic view of the historic section of Ventimiglia, Italy.

Ventimiglia is a small Italian city on the Mediterranean Sea about 7 kilometers from the French-Italian border. The area has been inhabited since pre-Roman times and has been sacked and rebuilt many times over the years. The Roia River divides the scenic old town on the western side from the newer parts of the city on the eastern side. The old part of town is built on a hillside and is criss-crossed by many small streets.

The Church of San Michele Arcangelo was erected in the 10th century by the Counts of Ventimiglia on the foundations of a pagan temple.   It was rebuilt in Romanesque style during the 11th and 12 centuries and was damaged in a 1628 earthquake.
