Vroom With A View
In search of Italy's dolce vita on a '61 Vespa
In the summer he turned forty Peter 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. Peter called her Sophia after Sophia Loren and the Italians loved her as much as he did.
From the Italian Alps to the hilltop towns of Tuscany she showed Peter a side of Italy very few people get to see.
