Mein Auto: 428 Cabrio - ED'ed 8-14
A couple of things that the video doesn't really convey are firstly, how steep the streets are. The spot where I followed the white mini-pickup down the street was like driving out of my bedroom window. Secondly, Karen had the camera on its widest setting, about equivalent to 25mm in a 35mm camera format, meaning those walls were really close. When we got into the unfamiliar part of town, I started the NAV for directional help, and followed the Uscita Citta (city exit) signs when the NAV wanted me to turn through a solid stone wall. Quite an experience.
