Buying Advance Tickets for Spain/Italy

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be touring through Spain and Italy in June and these are the destinations we have already booked accommodation for (in order):

Barcelona
Venice
Florence
Sorrento
Rome

We have our flight into Barcelona (from Canada) and out of Rome as well as a flight on RyanAir that will take us from Barcelona to Venice already booked. The remaining stops (after Venice) will be transported by Trenitalia. Which poses my first question. Should we reserve our train tickets on Trenitalia now or wait until we are there? I'm not sure if these trains sell out pretty quickly or if they are pretty flexible and can be purchased at the time of travel.

My next and primary question is purchasing advance tickets for attractions in these cities. First of all, what would be a good resource for buying these tickets ahead of time to "skip the line"? Would something like Viator.com be the best resource for this?

To give you an idea, here are some of the attractions we are interested in and figured we should look into advance tickets for to avoid waiting in long queues. There are more attractions but these are the only ones I could think of that would benefit us if we had advance tickets.

BARCELONA - Guell Palace, La Sagrada Familia, Picasso Museum, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, Guell Park, Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour.

VENICE - Palazzo Ducale, Venice walking Tour (St. Mark's Basilica)

FLORENCE - Uffizi Gallery, Duomo, Galleria dell'Accademia, Possible Day-Trip Siena.

SORRENTO - Ferry trip through Amalfi Coast, Pompeii.

ROME - Ancient Rome, Roman Forum, Colosseum, Vatican Museum.

If you think there is something obvious that I missed, please let me know. As usual, your feedback is greatly appreciated!!! :)
