My husband and I are heading to Italy in late August (1st trip). Have made reservations from 8/30 - 9/3 at the Hotel Marincanto in Positano, then 9/3-9/7 in Rome at Hotel Raphael. I have been working my way through LOTS of threads and amassing a ton of information but am not sure how soon I need to start looking at booking restaurants, tours, etc? Are there "special" underground/behind the scenes/etc. tours that need reservations far in advance? I am not certain exactly what sites/museums we are going to see, just in the initial research stages...but know we want to try and fit in many of the "do not miss" sites and then eat and drink well :)) Thanks!!
