    4 wheels or 2? Here's one of the best destinations to explore using a scooter!

    When you think Italy you probably think Ferrari. Well, we think you should choose... Vespa! Italy is home to one of the most historically beautiful countries and monuments in the world. Flying by in your Ferrari won't let you enjoy the views. Slow down and take it in with a 2-wheeled wonder.
