Since the 14th of June the marvellous Cuneo-Ventimiglia/Nizza line reopened service with 4 daily trains between Turin, Cuneo and Ventimiglia. The line was suspended after the service reductions due to the Corona-Virus disease. Although many works on the italian railway network during the service suspension, the line has not been touched, and its infrastructure remains in a really bad shape. There's a 40km/h speed restriction in the french section, and a 10km/h speed restriction in the Paganin tunnel between Saint-Dalmas-de-Tende and Fontan-Saorge.
But there's hope. The line has been candidated as one of the italian "places of heart" by the Italian "National Trust of Italy" fund (FAI). Everybody is invited to vote for this beautiful line. You only need one click!
