Milan or Rome, what to do with boxes
Well it looks like we got my first tour narrowed down to Italy. I was wondering what I can do with our bicycle boxes once arriving? We will be flying into either Rome or Milan.
I have read that they will not let you on the train at the airport without a bicycle box for the train. Is this still true? What about Milan?
What should we do with our bicycle boxes when arriving?
There is just discarding of course, then hopefully picking up a box on the way back.
What about a friendly bicycle store that is nearby the train station in the city? Would they store it?
Then of course there is leaving the boxes at our first nights stay but if flying into Rome, I think that I would want to just get out of the city on the first day. I imagine rooms are very expensive? Even hostels? Then there is just the hustle and bustle of the city. Or is it worth spending at least a day in Rome?
Any other tips on what to do with our boxes? (No wise cracks please
