The noise from our convoy was enough to scare even the hardened Italian locals & being tailgated by an old lady in a Micra, or having a white van trying to get past at whatever speed you’re doing conforms with the widely heard view that the Italians know how to drive :rofl:
Again, as I was driving, photos from this day are scarce from me… Plenty of videos which I’m currently sifting through though! Videos, again, will be up soon!
The view from my balcony come the morning
The main lounge/bar/dining area is a petrolheads scrapbook. This hotel was made for people like us to park up for a bit of kip at the end of the night. Photos & autographs of clubs, famous racing faces with autographed pictures all leaving mementos & photos to say that they’ve been to this iconic spot & headed up this amazing road.
The owners vintage Bentley parked next to the Scura Elise & Westfield.
The hotel opposite us with the owners Black Cab parked outside…He was very chuffed with it!
Our hotel! Remember to stay here if you ever visit this road!
Italian fuel stop! After we completed the vast amount of tunnels en-route to Piacenza!
The view from a bloody petrol station!
Home for the night!
The main square in Piacenza before the rain came!
Day 5 is a VERY wet roof down trip to the Mille Miglia museum before we head to the Stelvio Pass & our hotel, right at the top of it!
