Stayed in B&B in Vico Olivi in a tastefully restored tall townhouse with a lovely terrazza, overlooking the church square. Fantastic and friendly, although both house and streets rather vertiginous

There is plenty of parking just outside the Old Town. Best to park in the Square which is just near Ventimiglia Marina near promenade. Hope this helps.
