Fly into Milan and out of Rome to get the best weather.... heading from north to south as the weather gets a little cooler.

I'd do Pisa as a day trip from Florence. Your order is fine.


Are you talking about 12 days out of 14 on the ground with 2 travel days? If so, I might skip Milan and fly into Venice. Then spend 4 nights each in Venice, Florence and Rome.

Either fly into Milan and out of Rome or reverse as those two airports have more non-stop flights from the US and are usually less expensive.

You can visit Pisa by train from Florence (about 1 hour, 6€) so no need to change hotels.

Is there a reason you only want to visit cities?
