Barcelona to Rome in 2 weeks

Hey so me and my boyfriend are going to Europe for 2 weeks at the beginning of June (13 nights). We bought our plane tickets to fly into Barcelona and to fly out of Rome. We have planned to spend at least 4 days in each of those cities, giving us 5 days to travel from Barcelona over to Rome. Neither of us has ever been to Europe before and we are trying to figure out what to do for those 5 in between days. We are both in our twenties and looking to have a fun, not too stressful time. I like museums and history, and walking around towns and just browsing shops and cafes I guess. So somewhere in between touristy stuff and relaxing stuff if that makes sense. Here are two options that I am trying to figure out which would be best:

1. Staying in each Barcelona and Rome longer than the 4 days and flying to get between them.

2. Staying in each Barcelona and Rome for 4 days and taking trains to get between them. Staying somewhere in S. France along the way. But where to stay?

Also, I would really LOVE to go to Florence, but not if it is just going to be a rushed thing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

you can easily fly Vueling ( cheap) from Barcelona to many places in Spain ( some beach time?) or Europe.
Train system in Spain and Italy is very good....
check for ideas

It might or might not work for you, but there is a once-a-week ferry that goes from Barcelona to Livorno, leaving every Tuesday. It takes 20 hours and you will probably want to get a cabin but you are not required to. Without a cabin it's 120 Euros for two. With cabin add a hundred Euros. It's kind of like taking a one day crappy cruise.

From Livorno you could easily see Pisa and then go on to Florence for a couple of days before going to Rome.

We once flew to Florence from Barcelona, then took the Eurostar train to Rome (90 minutes). So that's easily doable.
You can purchase museum passes online in advance, a good idea for Florence as they limit admissions.
