We are planning on visiting Italy for 8-9 days in October. It's a fairly standard itinerary.... We want to start in Rome for 4 days, 2 days in Florence with a day trip to Pisa and then head over to Venice for a day and that night and leave the next afternoon to Milan. Spend the evening there and the entire next day and fly out to Paris the next day. We were really keen on the Amalfi coast but have dropped that from an already packed itinerary. Needed help to make better a rushed itinerary. We definitely want to see Rome, Florence and Venice.
