I've ridden there too! Did a London-to-Rome trip as a Graduation Present from my Parents from HS. You might have ridden on some of the same roads we did, esp if you road up to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I was actually disappointed with it - its a lot smaller then pics make it seem. Even in your picture of it, it seems pretty big. It prob. doesnt help that theres a Cathedral next to it.

But yes, some very FAST hills in Italy! I recall one that gave us a great view of some vineyards...except you had to concerntrate on the road since you were easily going between 40 - 50 MPH downhill on it!
