Nice pics, it seems you took a vey similar route that my wife and I took a couple of months ago. We did not go to Italy (we were in Rome about a year ago), but your pictures from there look great. I think it is a better option than heading over to Switzerland as we did. Better food for a better price in Italy no doubt. Prague was indeed amazing...I highly recommend the Segway tour when you are there (for anyone that may be going soon)!!
We did bikes and segways, but did not manage to get on steeds, very cool.
