Best way to Exchange Currency?

Jump to last reply

Hi! I finally booked my trip to Italy and leave in a week. i just want to share, you need to follow Airfarewatchdog.com. I got my ticket for $812 coming out of Las Vegas...which is way better than the $1400 i was going to pay. decided not to go with a tour and just do it on my own.

In any case, any experienced travelers out there know which way I should exchange currency? I can get it here at Wells Fargo at a 1.5141 exchange rate. Or should I go to the ATM in Europe (using Wells Fargo or Bank of America), OR exchange at the airport?

Also, any advice on how much to bring or allocate for a 6 day 5 night trip exclusively to Rome (we are doing Vatican tour, Da Vinci code tour, eating and shopping). $1200 ok?

Thanks for the consideration in answering this post!
