San Gimignano: 1 night

San Gimignano - Pisa - Lucca (1 night)

Cinque Terre: 1 night (not sure to visit yet)

Florence: 2 nights

Venice: 3 nights

I think you should reconsider gong to so many places where you'll stay for only one night. This will leave you with very little time to relax and just enjoy being in these places. You will be too busy packing and unpacking your bags, waiting at the bus/train station, etc.

Just a thought. Good luck.

I would leave out Cinque Terre for another visit to Italy.

Rome to Siena by bus www.sena.it for three nights

Bus Siena to San Gimignano www.trainspa.it/train04/extraurbano.pdf

Bus Siena to Florence (Firenze) www.busfox.com/timetable for three nights

Morning train Florence to Pisa, and later take the train to Lucca and return from Lucca to Florence by train www.trenitalia.com Click on the UK flag for translation

Trenitalia train Florence to Venice

You should stay 3 nights in one location and do day trips to Siena, Lucca and San Gim. Will save you packing/ checking in.
