New tramline in Nice

New tramline in Nice - Line 2 of the tramway in Nice will be inaugurated on Saturday at 9.45 am. The new line which will connect the port to the airport is eagerly awaited. Large crowds are expected to attend the event with several activities organized in and around the port. Meanwhile the new sculpture recently installed to mark the end of the works has come under fire from many locals describing it as “hideous” and “ruinning the landscape”. A petition with so far 800 signatures has been launched to have it replaced.
