Nice enough ( ) but you have to put up with Jonnie Tourist, I found it Hot, Dusty, lots of mates who rode out (roadies) and sort of enjoyed the food and wine :wink:, hated the glammed up wiminz, laughed at the Gigolos and generally fitted in right away.
I speak little Italian, got on fine, most folks speak English/German anywhoos so wasn't a problem.
Food was cheap, wine too, but you have to be prepared for banter in the Markets (which I loved) there are very large super/hypermarkets around but the ambiance is like a fridge.
Stay local, eat local, ride local.
Couldn't fault it.
Rooms/Appt's to rent were easy to come by (I had a mates Appt) you need to stump up deposits and g'tees but it's nothing untoward, travel like cars and scooters are the way too go, I had a scooter (still have) and it was ace, if it rains the roads get very slippy so remember that..
Some of the best times of my life
