I didn’t really enjoy myself. Think it was bad timing. I’d just been riding through Switzerland. The roads and scenery were gorgeous, the food amazing. But got to Italy on a Saturday and it was so incredibly crowded. I’m guessing it was the start of the holidays there.
The whole mood of the trip changed there, and not in a good way. I ended up having a small off on the bike (fun). Still found some great roads, but after saying goodbye to my two companions in Austria, I pretty much rode back to France and stayed in the Alps.
I definitely have to return though. I’d like to give Italy another chance.over 5 years ago
