Money exchange/Credit Cards

We are going to Germany for a week and Italy for a week this spring, will also be going into Austria and Switzerland. I was wondering what is the best way to pay for things. We have a visa and discover card, are they excepted? I also was told that you need a "european" 4 digit pin number if we are planning on using the ATM.

Could someone comment on what the best way/cheapest exchange fees would be.

We just changed our credit card and debit card PIN, to 4 numbers, just because we heard conflicting reports about this as well.

The exchange rate to buy Euros has been very good lately. My husband has purchased a good amount. We would not consider taking our currency over to Europe to exchange it there.

We plan to first use up the Euros we purchased here, then debit to withdraw cash, then credit card if they accept it.
