I'm going to spend a couple weeks in Tuscany next month poking around the countryside. I always travel light, never checking any baggage. I was thinking that if I came across an interesting C & V find that I could box it up and take it back as checked baggage. I'm assuming I would have to declare it for customs (bicycle parts). Has anyone had any experience bringing a bike back home that was purchased in Europe? Also, and this question is for the Italian bike lovers: What would you look for in Italy that isn't readily available in the US?
