How do I avoid excessive credit card/ATM fees when traveling in Europe this summer?

I'll be studying abroad in Europe for 6 weeks this summer, in 6 different countries. I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle money out there. I know that it's best not to carry cash or use local currency exchanges, but is there any particular credit card or bank that I should apply for to avoid conversion fees and other surcharges? Ideally I'd just be able to get cash out of most ATMs without having to pay an arm and a leg for each individual transaction.
Right now I have a checking account (debit card) with PNC Bank, and a credit card with Bank of America, just FYI.
