Sunday – From our hotel on the edge of the Vosges mountains we head straight into Germany and the Black Forest, before popping back into France near Mulhouse and spending the afternoon at the Cité de L’Automobile – a pheomenal car museum containing the Schlumpf Collection, including the most comprehensive display of Bugatti motor vehicles in the world.
Monday – Moving on from Mulhouse, we continue south skirting around Geneva and into the mountains to the west of Mont Blanc, before stopping at Lake Annecy on our way to the overnight stop at Chambery.
The road runs for 7 miles before you drive through the small village of Chop Gate.
You then drive on for a further 13 miles through sweeping bends and lots of gradient changes, again with great views and road, until you arrive at the picturesque village of Helmsley.
Over the decades many artists have sung “get your kicks on Route 66” so join us in our exploration of part of this fantastic road.
Enjoy this road trip from the air conditioned comfort of your modern day American sports car or get the wind in your hair in an open top convertible!
The final nail in the coffin of this fantastic road was the bypass of Williams Arizona in 1984 after which Route 66 was no longer an official US highway.
Many of the gas stations, the diners and motels were out of business and fell into decay.
Old 66 takes us on a climb through the mountains on some great roads via Tijeras Canyon and then we drop down through Barton and Edgewood.
For those who haven’t done our Spanish Safari, this will be a great taster…
Sunday – rest and relaxation aboard the ship home to Portsmouth.
The ruins of Helmsley Castle are here and are well worth a visit as is Dumcombe Park where you can visit the stately home and gardens, again very beautiful.
One thing to note on the drive is it is used by a lot of bikers and is classed as a dangerous road in the area.
