I only say USA because I have done most of my riding there. I have ridden in southern France and Italy, and I think Spain if I recall. Somewhat similar to New England terrain before you hit the big peaks. I liked New England mostly due to the weather since even wintertime can be pretty reasonable if the roads are clear; not much rain and fairly short hot season.

You are 100% correct - well spotted!!
Taken while riding to Venice from Salzburg - we hit the Grossglockner the following day!
