The ride today was from Menton, France to Cuneo, Italy. We got off to a reasonably early start 08:50hrs after packing up camp.
On the way we passed through Monaco managing to ride most of the track.
We met a captain of one of those motor launches (34m) and he explained a few facts about owner inc a vessel like those you see by the dozen along the riviera. So a typical vessel of this size will cost between 10 ~ 15m€, parking costs approx 1,000€ (plus a bag of cash) per day in Monaco and 8,000€ at Capri. Fuel usage is 600litres per hour and up to 10,000 with diesel costing a 1€ per litre. So there you go, if you are thinking of buying a boat for your summer you have a rough idea of the costs!
Cuneo is a lovely regional town and we had the best camp site yet with excellent facilities which made a big difference.
In making our way to Cuneo we actual crossed over the boarder between France and Italy 3 times weaving through the mountain passes.
