Day trip from Nice

Hello fellow travelers~

I'll be in France from July 11 to July 20 for my 50th b-day. On one of my days in Nice, I'm considering a day trip to Italy by train. Worth it or not, and what's the go-to destination? I'm up for a full day round trip, and it'll be by TRAIN. Thinking about just taking the train along the coast to "some point" for lunch the returning to Nice for dinner.

Ready -- set -- GO!!

You can travel quite a distance into Italy, if you so choose, with a transfer often in Ventimiglia (or via Thello). Many people just venture into Ventimiglia for the Friday markets. I find Bordighera to be a very pleasant Italian resort town, but some like San Remo, as it is larger. Genoa is three hours and would make a very long day.
