I rode in Rome. But I've been riding in traffic for years (and was younger and more foolish then). The only thing I remember is that the Roman Cobbles trap glass like something crazy.

I'm glad to hear about the bicycle train cars. I was kicked off of a train in the middle of the night (last train for that station) because I was carrying my bike with me (disassembled and compacted down as much as it would go. Should have covered it with a garbage bag and it would have been fine.

Some towns/regions like cinque terre are beautiful. Good paths between the towns, but I think mainly for walking. Perhaps make sure you are comfortable pushing your bike up and down mountain paths. I'm not sure how MTBs have impacted the region. There are also apparently some winding auto roads between the towns.
