Day 32 Arles, France

This post will cover my way from Rieti, in the North of Rome, to Arles in the South of France. 

After two days of rain in the Apennin mountsins, I continued east. 

Riding the old Italian salt road, the mountains are not that high. 

Finally, I made it to the Adriatic Sea. 

I needed to cross Italy as I wanted to visit  San Marino, the second new country on this journey. 
Again, it was raining a lot towards this litte country, that is completely surrounded by Italy.

Always welcome on rainy episodes, the destination is located on a hill. 
View from up there.

Next stop was Firenze, where I visited a good friend, Chistine. She runs a nice B&B "Il Mulo".

We spent two great days, I relaxed and saw a little of Firence. 

I had chosen the way though the hilly backcountry to get to Genua. Even so, this did meant more climing, I like the ride   like that. 

Though the route of the Giro d'Italia

I made my way to France. 

I did a quick lap at the Formula 1 Grand Prix track in 10:42. 

The Côte d'Azur is beautiful, I made my way quite quick (with tons of tailwind :) through Cannes, Nice and Marseille (the latter I liked the most). 

Now, I am in Arles, which yesterday was sunny, 

but today convinced me with bad weather for a restday.
