When I went to Thailand in 2006/07 my friend and I explored Ayuthaya by hiring bicycles (about 100 Baht per day from a bike shop just across the river from the train station) and riding all around the moated city.
We covered most of those temples by bike in 1 day so if you have a car it should be no trouble. The city is REALLY small.
My favourite place was Wat Chaiwathanaram- it's style is very much like ankor wat's. Make sure if you have to miss anything - it's not that!
I'd also recommend doing a night river cruise which is a circuit around the whole moat. It allows you to get off the boat and some temples that are hard to access (or know they are there) and it shows you a few that you may have seen during the day, like Wat Chaiwathanaram, in a whole new light (literally, they are illuminated by light and look quite different and beautiful)
