In his “Wheels” column, N.Y. Times guy Nick Kurczewski guy writes about a deal offered by Sergio Cagia of Nero Tours in which a couple pays $300 to take a three-hour tour of Rome on a couple of Vespa scooters. Three times I’ve rented bikes-for-two in Rome for a little more than one-third that amount. Same streets, same excitement, same sense of “fun while feeling impossibly cool.” I’m stunned that anyone would be dumb enough to pay $300 just so they can look swift on a classic Vespa.
