Jump to last reply

Here is our planned itinerary for April/ May this year. We'd love suggestions about less known places to go and things to see. This is our 5th trip so we've 'done' many of the main tourist sites. Also advice about transport passes etc... in fact any advice would be very appreciated. I;ve booked accommodation along the way but almost all of it is able to be cancelled/changed so we can be flexible...
