She's going to want a car. Can't remember how much the taxi costs. At the time, George had a deal with a driver. I'll bet he still does and can give you an idea of the cost. The guy was a hoot. He refused to take the freeway because of tolls. We took countless backroads, some of which were not much more than one lane wide. Guy drove like a bat out of hell, but he was very skilled, as most drivers in Italy are. (It's harder to get a license there than in the U.S.). We arrived May 24th. Nice time, but that year they were having their second coldest, wettest spring in history. From town you can look up and see the range were Monte Grappa is. One morning you could see fresh snow. One guy did the climb to Monte Gappa. He said it was cold and while the road was clear, there was about 6" of snow on the ground at the top.

The final stage of the Giro was started within riding distance so we went to see it. Here is Niboli riding passed:
