Here is our brief itinerary:
- We did all our reservations for trains through Trenitalia and Italo. Excellent service.And I highly recommend making all reservations in advance.
- We had a couple of reservations through airbnb. Both of them worked out very well.
- Most of the museum and other reservations which could have been done in advance, were booked in advance by us from here. This saved us a lot of time as we didn't have to queue up for tickets.
- We bought a 1/2/3 day pass for public transport in most of the cities and it was both economical and convenient thing to do.
- Google Maps is par excellence for public transport routing. Life would have been miserable without its support.
- Rick Steve's audio podcast were tremendously helpful for various museums and city walks.
- Google Translate was also very helpful where sign language couldn't do much!
