As for that description of driving in Italy especially on the coast, that was a tame description. Did Milan to Genoa to Monaco. White knuckled the entire way. Wife kept asking me what was wrong and I was too busy paying attention to my driving to respond. Like Grand Theft Auto with real cars. The tunnels were the best, especially with a semi coming the other way.

To make it even more contentious, you have to remember that you have a maximum speed you are not to exceed in the break in period. so going around others and out of the way sometimes becomes difficult.

I am going to rethink my trip. May do a loop of Munich, Albertville, Milan , Muncih.
For this reason I will be taking delivery and driving directly to port to ship out.
