    1. The sequel to Vroom with a View In the previous adventure, Peter travels from Milan to Rome on a Vespa the same age as himself Here he has acquired a slightly younger model in orange, which he names Marcello, and the ride is through the very different sunny, seaside parts of Italy At the end of Vroom with a View Peter proposed to his girlfriend now they re married and expecting their first baby.I preferred the novelty and carefree spirit of the first volume the many references Peter makes to his [...]

    2. The premise travelling around Italy on a Vespa is something that appealed to me enough to get me through the book Sadly most of the rest of it fell flat I didn t have any empathy with the author s voice This is no fault of the author perhaps, but being as I am far from this regular, middle aged heterosexual male with leanings towards the obsession with Catholicism and saints I found the diary style of this man s progress on his travels difficult to get along with I found myself cheerfully skippi [...]

    3. I think fate is telling me I HAVE to go to Italy First off I went and saw Eat, Pray, Love which is gonna be high up on Mt TBR when I get home and absolutely loved all the scenery, food, etc in Italy Then my sis went to Italy and went to Pompeii long time dream of mine and seemed to have a fabulous time there , and then I read this book going off to add the Lonely Planet guide to Italy to my wishlist What an awesome adventure to go on I m going to do that one day And yes, I was sorely tempted wh [...]

    4. Not that funny, not that well written, not a lot of culture However the book featured a bright orange 1972 Vespa Rally so I couldn t put the damn thing down The food and Saints got a bit tedious.Never trust a man, especially an Australian, who refers to his wife s pregnancy as a condition I hope he writes another book about riding Vespas around Italy.Has inspired me to drive to the Isle of Elba for the Scooter Rally Toscano scooterrallytoscano only 870 miles Any takers Shame it s so cold or I wo [...]

    5. It didn t enthrall me, however it did arouse my interest in wanting to visit the Amalfi coast and Italy s islands, some I d never heard of but they sounded idyllic, especially Capraia It also made me want to ride around on a Vespa, although not for the entire journey, feeling the surroundings on my skin rather than passing through them in a bubble Peter Moore paints a pretty picture with his description and he comes out with some funny original lines Overall a reasonable guide book, informative [...]

    6. Stunning book One of the best travel books and funny and cool and all you would expect from a well travelled Vespa trying to carry its very witty passenger through some of the most interesting parts of italia.

    7. Not as good as the previous book but still a excellent book Borrowed a earlier book of his from for this month can t wait to read it.

    8. A great book, guaranteed to ignite the wanderlust in you Fun recount of the author s solo trip around Sardinia, Sicily parts of Italy on a bright orange Vespa motor scooter Really enjoyable

    9. Enjoyed Wrong way home by this author, but this book is a waste of time, glad it was used for a flight not quality reading time.

    10. I hadn t read any of the author s books in a while, and he does make references to Vroom with a View every so often, but that s okay this one reads well as a stand alone story.

    11. After reading Vroom with a View by Peter, and buying a Classic 1965 Vespa 150, I now lust for the Orange Rally 200 featured in this fun filled travelogue through rural Italy.
