LA VESPA: CUTE AS A BUTTON

La dolce vita en rose
The incontournable Italian Vespa scooter launched by Piaggio in 1946 has always been a French fashionista favorite. This brand-new shiny pink model was parked under a platane tree on a shady Uzès  street  in the Languedoc-Roussillon. The word "vespa" means wasp in Italian.

Vocabulary
incontournable:  inescapable, not be be avoided
mignon comme tout:  pretty as a picture
joli comme un coeur:  cute as a button
une guêpe:  a wasp
un deux-roues:  a two-wheeled vehicle
