In the summer I turned forty I bought an old Vespa on eBay and rode it from Milan to Rome.
The Vespa was a beautiful coffee coloured ’61 model with saddle seats and a little too much chrome. I called her Sophia after Sophia Loren and the Italians loved her as much as I did.
From the Italian Alps to the hilltop towns of Tuscany she showed me a side of Italy very few people get to see.
Vroom With A View is my account of that journey.
