Lonely Planet has replaced Baedeker and Frommer (Europe on $5/Day) as one of THE premier guidebook publishers of the 21st century. Among their book titles is a series of cycling guides in five countries around the world. They first published the Italy Cycling Guide in 2003 and upgraded it with a second edition in 2009. ExperiencePlus! assisted author Elle Thalheimer with several of the routes in that edition.
