I'm going to be there between May 17 and May 25 and I don't know anything about traveling to see the stages. Do I need a car? How do I get to the towns? etc Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
car is best, but (more)LDO

Railway connections is Italy are quite good, so this would be a cheap way to move around. For stages that start or end in towns with no railway, there are local buses that do the connection (e.g. mountain stages). the problem is how to get the timetables and all related information.

If you are willing to spend some time travelling, choose the train. When in Italy, it should be easy to plan it even the day before. You can buy railway timetables at many press shops, as well as the regional (or even national ? can't remember) bus timetable for one of the major Italian bus lines, called "Autostradale". Good luck.
