Bike Store - Rome (Italy)
« on: March 25, 2018, 04:17:12 pm »
I'm going on a cruise this summer from Rome to Barcellona.  On my last cruise (on the Rhine River), we docked basically either in or very near town at almost every port.  I often walked off the boat on my own and straight into town.

A couple days ago I had an epiphany.  One of those small folding bicycles would probably be very useful.  However, airlines are charging through the nose for checked bags.

I'm landing in Rome around nine in the morning, but the ship doesn't leave the port until eleven that night.  So I have plenty of time to go to a bike store and buy a cheap folding bike.  Assuming I know where to go.  So does anyone have any recommendations for a bike store that will sell a cheap folding bike in Rome?  My plan would be to leave the bike on the boat for the crew at the end of the cruise.  If the price were similar to the cheap ones on Amazon, it would probably cost little more than the baggage fee in both directions.  I'm not looking for a durable bike (obviously), just something cheap.

Decathlon have a number of stores in Rome and have a good selection of bikes including folders.   Prices and quality are generally good.
