    Lightbulb Euro Drive to Monte Carlo Monaco Easter 2021?

    Hi all I am thinking about a drive from the Black Forest to Monaco around Easter.
    No too organized, daily trips of around 300 km - everybody books his own hotel pays his own bills etc. No roadbook but navigation by gpx files / scenic app.

    four to five days down
    two days there
    three days up

    If somebody's interested in joining let me know.
    Driveability of passes is to be judged on a day to day basis - there are lots of Roadworks taking place in France - and the winter is yet to come - Iseran, Galibier usually open in june.
    Also nobody can currently predict the Covid feasibility of such a trip - but if it would happen it's fine if not then another time.

    Hello Uli,
    a delightful idea. However, with a "Monte" there should be some snow on the road. This is probably not for my Targa.
    For that I would first have to find a rat ...
    Do you have a recommendation for me?
    Golden greetings
    Andreas

    The more I think about this, the more I'm getting excited about the idea of a Monte Carlo trip. But I think we'd either have to do it when the salt/snow is gone, or use a more modern car like a 996 or later (not sure how well-protected a 993 is against road salt). The thought of blasting to the Alps via the Autobahn and then doing all these great passes in my 996 is also quite appealing.

    Andreas: you can pick up a 996 for a relatively modest sum and they drive very well. Sort of like a modern interpretation of the narrow early cars.

    Hi Frederik, I have no problem with more modern cars.
    I was looking into driving the histo monte, but it was cancelled, so I thought doing something like that without all that regularity crap - just driving without any time pressure over the alpine roads might be nice.
    I did that in july 2009 with the 964 - 25+ alpine passes . Easter was just an idea that came to my mind where we would still be able to catch some snow.
    But at the rate covid currently spreads we will have to see what the situation in march/april is and then decide whether it might be feasible.
