Ventimiglia is a city, comune and bishopric in Liguria, northern Italy, in the province of Imperia. It is located 130 km southwest of Genoa by rail, and 7 km from the French-Italian border, on the Gulf of Genoa, having a small harbour at the mouth of the Roia River, which divides the town into two parts. Ventimiglia's urban area has a population of 55,000.
The name derives from ancient Ligurian dialect, in Latin “Albium Intemelium”, meaning capital city of the Intemelii.
