Oh Italy, You're So... Italian


1) By all means, NEVER use a turn signal. This is a sure display of weakness.

2) Do not expect a median strip on a major highway. A white line down the middle? Strictly for sissies.

3) In traffic, people will drive up on the shoulder....
passing you & 10 other cars, then cut back in. You shake your fist (but wonder if maybe you should try the same...)

4) If in a hurry, you will inevitably be stuck behind a truck, usually driven with no particular sense of urgency by an octogenarian.

5) If you fly into Naples & rent a car - GET A CAR WITH GPS.

Happy Driving!

You're much braver than we are. We've been to Amalfi a few times, and we always arrange for a hotel transfer before we arrive at the airport in Naples. It's totally worth the money. I don't think I'd ever try driving there myself.
