Sight seeing in Nice

Well, today I jumped on the train and headed into Nice… about a 10 minute ride away.

I didn’t have anything definite planned – just spent the day wandering around “the old town” as well as going up to the ruins of the Ancien Chateau. The panorama from the top was very impressive, and the colour of the water was a stunning contrasting to the red tile roofs everywhere.

Walking around I’d spotted a sign about an Historic Rally on in Nice next weekend, and on my way back through town I realized there was something going on in the main square. Altho I’m here a week early really, it turned out the field comes in this weekend and competes nearby during this week, with the special stages next weekend. Some absolutely gorgeoues machines in there, including an all girl team in a classic Merc, but my heart of course went to the few Porsche 356’s competing… one in particular sounded AWESOME, and judging by the rubber marbles stuck onto it was used to being driven hard… exactly what they’re made for !!!
