    Unfortunately on those days I'm not at home and I can't meet you.
    But I can give you few suggestions:

    Be careful because roads in Italy are fully crawded in that period.

    When you are in Tuscany I strongly suggest to visit small towns like Pienza, Montepulciano, Sinalunga, Monteriggioni.
    Roads in Tuscany are fantastic for bikes; enjoy them!

    I wasn't too impressed with Venice and it was soooo expensive!

    I know it is a little further up but the LAKES area was much nicer place to go. Our campsite at Dongo was brilliant.

    I think it would be a waste not to do the Stelvio and Gavia passes if you are in Italy but it is a long detour from your route.

    The roads round Tuscany was very pretty but I didn't do much of that.

    If you want I can email you our route from this last trip. It is a garmin gps file.

    If you're a MotoGP fan you could visit Rossi's hometown, Tavullia and check out his fan club headquarters & cafe. Tavullia is near Rimini.

    Have a great time & please post some photos when you return.









    Oh & don't forget - Avoid Venice!

    There will be something!

    Best going to the cafe 'cos there's more room so more likely to have coverage in there. The fan club is just 2 little rooms.



    Wish I was going with you.

    Best place to park up is outside the cafe.
    It's only a short walk to the club.
    There's parking spaces outside (below) the fan club but your bike will be out of sight once you walk up the slope. If you park outside the cafe you can order a tasty bite to eat, I had the 'Steve McQueen', then visit the fan club one at a time while one watches the bikes while relaxing sitting down.
