Is this feasible?

We will be going to Italy for 9 days, adn we would like to go to Rome, Florence, Siena, and Venice.
1) Is this feasible or too much running around?
2) Which route do you advise? Rome to Venice and then go south or vice versa?

This is your third posting for the same trip! You still haven't answered the questions asked the two previous times. The only difference now seems to be that you've extended your trip from 7 to 9 days!

Frankly, yes, I think it is too much. I'd stay camped in Rome and maybe spend a day or two in Florence. If you do this, you can use the Eurostar (train) to get to Florence. It's very affordable and is 1.5 hours each way.

Buon Viaggio,

Florence and Siena are very close. I"d do 3 nights in Rome, 3 in Tuscany, 2 in Venice. Or start in VEnice, then Florence, Siena, Rome.
For the 3 Tuscan nights do 2 in the hilltowns (incl Siena) and 1 in Florence. Maybe consider car rental from Rome to FLorence to drive Tuscany vs limiting yourself to train stops.

You are nuts! You need at least 5 days to enjoy Rome. Its an amazing city! Do Venice as a second city. Skip Florence. Its overrated and compared to Rome not so great. Siena is a 4 hours day trip, at best. Pace yourself, slow down. Enjoy what the cities have to offer.
