Touring Italy in November

Hello,

I am new to this forum but found a lot of great info here. I am traveling to Algeria through Rome in early November, and want to know if it would be worth the expense to take an extended (3 to 5 day) layover in Italy, rent a RT and tour around Italy that time of year. I heard the weather can be rainy and average 50 to 60 F. Any thoughts would be very helpful.

Huh? Isn't that a perfect riding weather? I cannot wait until the temps here at home drop into the 50's!

Suggestion: any time to ride is great. Good raingear is your friend (not the chinzy unbreathable polyethylene stuff). I use raingear in low temperatures as a heat container: put it on and feel comfy.

Don't waste the occasion to sample some of the best riding in the world.
