I will be cycling a little in Italy really soon and I am wondering about taking my bike on the train...
We will be cycling through Tuscany for about +/-10 days and then going down to Puglia by train and bike for another +/-12 days... (Taking one high speed train going up and down to Puglia)
The Trenitalia website ask you to take your bike on board in a box or a bag which never exceeds 80x110x40 cm... As I am riding a Surly disk trucker, even if I'm taking everything off, the frame of the bike doesn't even get into that box (too small).
So I'm wondering : Are they really checking the size of the box/bag everytime ?? Did anyone here had any issue with the size of the box/bag ?
Thank you very much for your quick answers :)
