The completion of Cala del Forte also marked the development of a number of urban projects set to be completed around Ventimiglia. These include the upgrade of the water and waste system, fresh paving of roads, landscaping interventions and the creation of a direct connection between the marina itself and the old city centre, making Ventimiglia even more accessible to those interested in exploring its charming medieval streets. On April 7th 2022, the CEO of Cala del Forte Gian Battista Borea d’Olmo, alongside the Mayor of Ventimiglia Mr. Gaetano Scullino, celebrated the inauguration of a cutting-edge vertical lift which, from this day forward, will provide a direct, fast and free of charge pedestrian connection between the Cala del Forte marina and the historic town centre of Ventimiglia Alta. It is now possible to reach the charming town centre in just 40 seconds. The vertical lift, together with the 582 parking spaces at Cala del Forte, all of which are already fully operational and open to the public, opens up a new era for innovative mobility and hospitality in Ventimiglia.
