Check out the photo album below for some street scenes highlighting the everyday charms of Italy. Everyone we met was really friendly and helpful. I was surprised by the amount of graffiti, the much higher rate of smoking and the number of public telephone booths. Loved the espresso, but missed my morning Starbucks and big glasses of water. Loved the way people dressed and those adorable Vespa motorcycles. Missed reliable cell and wi-fi service and decided I would not want to drive in Italy. Loved the amazing food and the relaxed vibe.
