    Cycling in Italy - Cyclomundo

    I'm planning on doing a trip in Italy in September. I'm considering a self-guided trip with Cyclomundo through the Dolomites and down to Venice. Does anyone have experience with this kind of trip or, in particular, Cyclomundo as a company? Any advice would be appreciated.

    1) No wheeled vehicles are allowed on the Venetian islands.
    2) Outside the major cities, I feel a lot safer on the roads in Italy than in the US. On the secondary roads where I'd ride anyway, drivers don't have the attitude that bicycles are kid's toys that don't belong on "their" roads. The traffic laws presume that in an incident between car and bike the car is at fault until proven otherwise. It gives drivers more incentive to be civil to cyclists.

    The trip actually stops outside of Venice. I appreciate your comments on cycling outside the cities. This trip is mainly on rural roads and, in some cases, bike paths. I do have some concerns about navigating as this is a self-directed tour. But, I guess that is where the adventure comes in.
