How to Park a Car when in Rome

It’s true – lane lines are for decoration and there are no parking rules.  Pedestrians do not have the right of way. 

I thought New York cab drivers were crazy – take a cab ride in Rome for the ride of your life.  I suggest wearing your seatbelt :)

Your best bet - follow a nun or a local when crossing the street!

Also, the scooters and motorcycles will weave in and out of traffic and fit through the tiniest of spaces.  Driving is definitely an art form in Rome.

Double parking – Allowed!

Parking sideways over the curb – Allowed!

Parking back end to a tree – Allowed!

I have no idea how this guy will ever find a parallel parking spot – this was one of the largest vehicles I saw:

With all the crazy driving, I did not see an accident all week - amazing!
