I've read a lot of threads here on itineraries and came up with this itinerary (below) for an early August 2006 trip. Is it too late to book the hotels?
Are the routes and sites to see doable in the time I outlined or too rushed? Am I missing any key sites I really should see? Are there some I should skip?
Are these the best cities/towns for overnights? How do I find the best hotel bookings?
