From Florence, I would like to visit Pisa by train, drive/bus to Greve, San Gimignano and Siena. I am thinking of adding 1 more day in Florence to see the Cinque Terre. This would need me to remove 1 day/night from Rome.

When in Sorrento, we would like to visit Capri, Drive the Amalfi Coast, visiting Positano and Ravello, and visit Pompeii.

When in Rome, I would like to train to Orvieto.

This is not a must, but I read about heading to Tamburini in Bologna, where you can get vacuum-packed delicacies to take home with you. Maybe this is a stop we can make on our way from Venice to Florence. Is there a place we can store our luggage for a few hours if we do stop here?

Based on the above itinerary, would you recommend taking away 1 night from an area to add 1 night to another area. I am thinking of taking 1 night away from Rome and stay and extra night in Florence to take a day tour trip to Cinque Terre. Thoughts?

I plan to begin booking hotels this week and am seeking recommendations. I would not like to spend more than 150/night, be close to center or close to some or most main sights, would prefer breakfast to be included, comfortable bed, prefer a view. I am not looking for luxury, but I also don't want a place that is just ok.
