Women wanted him. Men wanted to be him. And one hot summer he roamed the Italian seaside breaking hearts throughout Sardinia, Sicily and along the Amalfi coast. Racy, loud and an incorrigible show-off, he was the epitome of Italian machismo. He showed Peter, his less flamboyant companion, another side of Italy tourists rarely see. His name was Marcello and like Sophia from VROOM WITH A VIEW he was a Vespa. A Vespa the same shade of orange as Donatella Versace. Two years after riding from Milan to Rome in search of la dolce vita, Peter Moore's life has changed dramatically. He has married Sally and she is pregnant with their first child. With fatherhood only five months away Peter reacted the way some men facing nappies and travel systems do, he panicked. But man, Peter sure found an understanding wife. Sally gave him the opportunity to go off, just once more, to be irresponsible. For Peter this was a wild, final, two-stroke powered fling - with permission - through some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world on a Vespa with white go-fast stripes that brought a smile to peoples' faces everywhere it went.

A good successor to Vroom with a view. A more efficient motor scooter take away some of the charm of the first book. Peter still manages to meet interesting people include friends from the first book. Tends to give you the highs of traveling with witha carefree adventure.

This is the follow on book from Vroom With A View (although you can read this book separately without being left behind). After his first experience in Italy with a Vespa, and fatherhood impending, he decides to have one last fling in Italy with his beloved scooter Sophia. As always, things don't go to plan and he ends up with the 'masculine' Marcello. A great book for those interested in Italy and getting beyond just the main cities.
