Hopefully some useful advice from someone who has been to both Italy and
Czech Republic many times. You don't say if you will have your own
transport. If you do, that will make a big difference.
In Venice there are four caches. Three of them are virtuals. "The Snail"
is nice and the series Death in Venice is great to get you around some of
the more unusual sights of the city.
It's great fun and will take up most of a full day.
>Ceske BudejoviceThere aren't any caches around Ceske Budejovice but it is the home of the
original Budweiser. You will get fed up of people there telling you
that. But it's great beer.
There are quire a lot of caches in Prague now. We haven't been there since
we started geoaching so I don't know much about any of them. Except
"Panorama" which was set by a friend of mine. That gets good
reviews. Prague is my favourite city in the whole world. Just keep away
from the bars and cafes in the main tourist spots and you will be fine.
Have a great time.
