[[Image:Faggio (GTAVC) (front).jpg|thumb|right|200px|The Faggio, as depicted in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|GTA: Vice City]].]] The '''Faggio''' is a scooter based on the ''[[wp:Piaggio|Piaggio]]'' range, found in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. == Description == The slowest motorcycle in each of the five games the vehicle appears in, the Faggio's appearance remained virtually unchanged throughout the [[GTA III era]], being based off a [[wp:Vespa|Piaggio Vespa]], apart from one of its brake lights being broken on the San Andreas model. In GTA IV, the Faggio took on the appearance of a Baccio DLX 50; it has a new engine sound, no longer has a single transmission number, and its handling has been greatly changed, yet it is still the slowest motorbike in all GTA eras. Using the Faggio is the easiest way to do long wheelies. == Variants == The [[Pizza Boy]] (or Pizzaboy) delivery scooter, featured in [[GTA Vice City]], [[GTA San Andreas]] and [[GTA Liberty City Stories]], is a modified Faggio with a back-mounted box installed to carry pizzas (or other goods), and painted in the livery of the vehicle's respective owners. Another delivery scooter, the [[NoodleBoy]] from GTA Liberty City Stories, has similar handling and speed to the Faggio, but has a different, more contemporary design. In GTA Vice City Stories, another delivery moped looking like the Faggio appears named [[Ventoso]]. GTA IV expansion [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] apparently contains a new Faggio variant. == Locations == '''GTA Vice City''' *By a skip, a block away from safe houses in [[Vice Point]], [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]] *The alley next to [[Ken Rosenberg|Ken Rosenberg's]] [[K. Rosenberg & Co.|office]] in [[Ocean Beach]], Vice City. '''GTA San Andreas''' *[[Santa Maria Beach]], [[Los Santos]] *Near [[Burger Shot]] in [[Redsands East]], [[Las Venturas]] (starts [[Courier Missions in GTA San Andreas|courier mission]]) '''GTA Liberty City Stories''' *Outside the [[FIDL]] supermarket in [[Portland View]], [[Portland Island]] *[[AMCo.

Ocean Drive is a major road in Vice City. It appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It is the easternmost street in Vice City that runs along Ocean Beach and Washington Beach in Vice Beach. The street is basically a long stretch of road that runs from the north near Standing Vice Point in southern Vice Point, all the way to the south at Maison Wenifall and an unnamed fountain in southern Ocean Beach. Ocean Drive is located parallel to Washington Avenue and has many alleyways in which weapon spawns and unique stunt jumps can be found.
Ocean Drive is based on the real-life Ocean Drive in South Beach, Miami, being a street running between a grassy partition, a walkway and the vast Vice City beach to the east, and a predominantly Art Deco and Streamline Moderne urbanscape to the west; the Ocean Beach lighthouse is just east off the southern end of Ocean Drive.
Being in close proximity to a well known beach, it is not uncommon for the player to encounter swimsuit-clad pedestrians in the day and contemporary party attires at night along the road. Skating pedestrians also frequent paved areas along the street, and strolling lifeguards were added in GTA Vice City Stories.
There are large numbers of landmarks dotted along Ocean Drive, most being Art Deco and Streamline Moderne hotels, cafes and restaurants on the west side, reflecting the aesthetics of the real-life Ocean Drive. However, the vast majority of these buildings are non-interactive or have no interiors; only two buildings in GTA Vice City are exceptions. The vast majority of buildings along Ocean Drive are retained in GTA Vice City Stories, but have been cosmetically retouched with their names omitted.
The various landmarks along Ocean Drive are as depicted using GTA Vice City screenshots in the following gallery (note that certain buildings are duplicated along the entire stretch of Ocean Drive):
