The best way to see Italy and Europe for that matter is with your own set of wheels. I was once told by our friend Vicenzo in his deepest Italian accent speaking perfectly broken English, "Italians like the curve on their roads and their women" and from the voluptuous Sophia Loren to the hair pin turns of the Alpe di Siusi in the Dolomites there has…Continue
