We picked up our rental car in Nice, brand new Fiat 500 or as we liked to call her, Fifi (feefee). After seeing how people drive in Italy I spent the past month very nervous about this day.

Here we encountered some of the annoying window washers who wait for you at traffic lights. It doesn't matter in what language - English, French or body language (and you can imagine our hand language for starters), foot on accelerator slowly (or not) inching the car forward or whatever you try - they will not take no for an ...
