An excellent picture...really quite spectacular! I think you should send it to Piaggio to use (for a negotiable fee!) in their future scooter adverts!

Vespone,

Welcome from Minnesota USA. Thanks for the great photo. You are blessed to live in that scenic world. Do not be shy about sharing more of your adventures and sending photos. We love them.

Bob Copeland
I had the good fortune to live in your beautiful country.  You will recognize Amalfi in this photo from 50 years ago.  Probably has not changed.  Timeless.

Dear Bob, Thank you for the welcome. I looked at your photo of Amalfi, and actually it hasn't changed much since the 50s. Living in these areas of the Amalfi Coast is something that allows you to love the Vespa even more, because it is thanks to it that it is possible to observe with enchantment every single meter of this Paradise.

The Amalfi coast ride may be one of the best. I spent many a day riding it on my Ducati. Two wheels were helpful in the congested traffic during high tourist season.

Dear Bob, Your Ducati is beautiful. Surely you had fun on the streets of the Amalfi Coast.

Vespone,

Thanks for the great photos of the Amalfi Coast. If my memory serves me correctly, most US Tourists would go out to the Island of Capri and just missed the Amalfi Coast. Europeans and Italians knew it was there, but you had to be a returning seasoned traveler to get to Amalfi. Tour busses would come down from Rome for the day. I kind of enjoying having these places, off tourist season, empty with only local Italians around.

Italy kind of blew up in popularity with tourists flooding the popular spots. I would ride my Ducati down to the Greek Temples in Paestum. There was absolutely no one there.

You have one beautiful scooter riding vista.

Spectacular Greek Temples at Paestum below Salerno - No gates. no barriers just walk right in.  I am sure that has changed.

I observed different models of Vespa in that historical photo of Amalfi 🙂

Vespone,

You really live in a scenic paradise. Combine that with the amazing smell of coffee at the local Cafe'/Bar - you may be in heaven.

Viva Italia!

Vespone,

If you can, keep those great photos coming. All the years I lived in Italia, I missed Ravello. I would drive countless times on the Amalfi Coast and missed
going up the mountain to that beautiful city over looking the coast.

Mia moglie (wife Pam) and I took our adult kids (Brian and Kelsey) back to Italy.
We rented two Vespa 50cc and rode two up from Positano to Ravello exploring. Unbelievable scenic beauty. My Vespa got so hot it died when we got to the top of the mountain in Ravello. Understanding Vespas, I let it sit and cool off.
Started right up and down the mountain we went.

Probably not smart riding two up on a 50cc climbing mountains.

Again, thanks for the great photos.
