We left Tenuta Testarossa heading for Venice.  All I can say is that the drivers we have encountered drive as if they are on a race track. Whether in the city or on the highways there is a great need for speed, weaving in and out and motor scooters making their own lanes and rules. I find it interesting that a country that is so laid back would be in such a hurry when they are driving.  May be it is all that espresso. I was proud/ terrified as my husband soon got the hang of it and began driving like Mario Andretti.  The racing in and out of tunnels is what I enjoyed the most & my entire left side has whiplash from the way I was gripping my seat.  On to Venice!!!
