I'm cycle touring through Europe and have spent the last 3 weeks cycling through The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, but now it is getting cold I am catching a train to Venice. But after that I can't decide which way to go, so I would appreciate any advice or recommendations on this.
I was thinking of either going south through Italy, or around to the coast of Croatia. I have never cycled in either country before, so I was wondering what the cycling conditions are like? I assume there are fewer off-road paths than in Germany or The Netherlands? Which is your favourite?
Is it possible to catch a train/ferry south with my bike in either country? If so, is it expensive?
