Italy Bikes Trains

Does anyone have experience touring in Italy, particularly Tuscany? What are the rules and regulations for transporting bikes and panniers while on tour?

I've bikes in Italy but never taken my bike on a train there.  However, RailEurope has an Italian Rail web site with a great deal of info and they can tell you the regulations.  Here is the URL:

Apparently you can take your bike on most trains but there are packing requirements.
