sad to lose Venice, but it makes for a much more enjoyable plan imo overall.

Agree on losing Venice. We went to Italy three times before getting to Venice. While Venice was great in that it is so unique, we love Florence (#1) and Rome more.

Favorite restaurants in Rome: Santo Padre and Pietro Valentini (small family places with amazing food). Florence: La Giostra. Enjoy

Your itinerary is too structured. To me, Italy is about slowing down and enjoying life. Italy cannot be structured, it is part of its charm and at times it can be frustrating. Trying to operate on a set timetable will ruin your trip as your plans quickly go out the window and you don't have enought to fit in all of your activities.

Even though I recommended dropping Venice because of the OP's particular itinerary and time restraints, La Serenissima remains my favorite city in Europe. Couldn't stand Florence. Chacon a son gout.

Also agree with dropping a city, but if it came to a choice, personally I'd drop Florence, keeping Rome and Venice with 3 nights each.

If you do plan on returning to Italy then don't rush your trip.

If what you love about the "Italian experience" is the food, wine and culture then you will need time to soak it all in.

Have a great trip!
