The Nice tramway project has been a massive disruption to the centre of Nice for a couple of years. However, the trams are at last running -though its only for practice at the moment.

The tramway is supposed to be officially starting in about 6 weeks time so I hope the finishing touches can be done on schedule.

Seeing the new gleaming trams gliding on the rails is quite exciting -at the moment people stand and watch as the trams go by. I suppose there was probably a similar reaction when the the previous tramway was built at the end of the 19th century.

Unfortunately , this old tramway stopped around 1950 due to the expanding bus network - I suppose Nice has now gone full circle in terms of public transport.
