Traveling in Italy

with (or without) a bike

I have had the good fortune to travel to Italy many times. I count those days and weeks among the finest in my life. Recently, I was talking with Larry Theobald of CycleItalia cycling tours and mentioned that I would like to share what I have learned with visitors to our website. Larry generously offered to throw in what he could.

This is such a huge subject, I've broken it into several sections. You can just click on those areas that appeal to you.
