It took us about 30-45 minutes to leave Milano and we got a lot of training on what to do and how to drive in Italy. As in France the scooters are quite aggressive although I must say I found the Parisians crazier. But I hear Rome is tough too.
After putting gas and eating and specially drinking as it was very hot, we left the gas station and I started testing if clutch would come back or if it was shot for good. Unfortunately did not like the feel of it and later the BMW mechanic would say "E' Morta" ("It is dead") and would give a cross sign.
As we had evening in Genova, we went out for dinner and stopped in an "American Bar" and sat and drank something while they brought us "included in the price" snacks, which were great. After all was done it cost us 20E and included tip. It was very good value for money.
