Italy is just round the corner from French Riviera and therefore we decided to make the best use of our schengen visa. We took a train and headed to the Italian town of Ventimiglia. It's just a small train ride away. From eating oysters to digging in pasta- we did that in one day and we were pretty kicked about it. The moment you cross the border, you will notice a stark difference between the French and the Italian culture. Just within a few miles, you see a difference in food, textures, flavours, language, people. We entered a bustling market selling local fruits, vegetables and flowers. The prices are generally lower than what you will find across the French border. Do find time to devour some sinful local risotto, spaghetti and pasta and end your meal with a heavenly tiramisu.

If you’re looking to venture to the South of France, don’t pass up this spot loved by locals. You may be thinking how a well known city like Marseille made this list, but there’s more to it outside of the crowded city center. Come here to experience Les Calanques, or coves, where adrenaline junkies can jump off cliffs into the sea or you can lounge in the sun.
