I miss the driving in Italy. I lived in Naples for over three years and man was that crazy. I only had one accident and luckily I only damaged my car and nothing else. Italian driving made me feel alive but I do know it is not for everybody.
I miss the Autostradas and going as fast as the car and my nerves can handle. I had an E34 BMW 520i that was just perfect for Italy and had enough protection just in case I got into an accident. I miss the twistys and doing some real technical driving. Most of all, I miss the coastal road I used to take on a daily basis to go to work.
I don't know if driving a new BMW in Italy is the way to go. I know it would have given me a heart attack everytime I parked in spots built for Fiat Cinque Centos (cars about half the size of a 3 series). Take car and stay safe. Enjoy it while you can.
