My husband and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in June, 2014. We are both experienced GS riders and want to ride this route to celebrate. We're planning 3 weeks or so for the trip, with all but about 4 days with the bikes. We have been to central Italy (June, 2012 for three weeks) and so we know what we want to see there. However, we don't have experience with Sicily or Sardinia. I am always appreciative of advice on what to see and do (and where to eat, of course!), but I'm really looking for basic advice. Most importantly, I would like information on a reputable bike rental agency for a 650 and 800/1200. We'll be picking them up in Rome and riding south, then returning them to Rome again. I'm assuming there is a car ferry between the mainland and Sicily and between Sicily and Sardinia, but I'm not sure about this. We'll probably go from Sardinia to the Cinque Terre area. Any thoughts or advice is welcomed and appreciated.
