Hi there,
so, we have a lot of thinghs and places to see here. it depend how many time you have to spend, your landing and leaving place. anyway most interesting places where to ride a bike in italy are the Alpi's range (from france to austrian border) the Appennini (wich is as a long backbone mountain range from north to south (highways are boring and expensive sometimes) the coastal route from naples till reggio di calabria and sicily so on. sardinia also have rough landscapes and remote history heritage. main cities like as usual florence, venice, Verona, Rome, but you can stumblin' in small villages along the way with quiet life, nice views and intresting and historic architecture (if you are intrested on it). accomodation may be a little bit expensive in main places and famous and hype-touristic cities. also camping in italy isn't ever cheap.
anyway if you need further info, send me a mail; i'll be glad to help you.
see ya.

I only have a couple or weeks. I've thought about flying into Palermo, Sicily because it is a port town and I think I can have my bike shipped there. And just traveling North from there. Maybe ending my tour in Venice and flying out from there. You say it's pretty expensive? Do you have any helpful tips for me? Thanks, Ron
