Venice to Prague Backpackers itinerary - suggestions for bus/train travel?

Hi there -

I have the itinerary below in mind for June 17th arrival through August 24th departure. Is there a RailPass that would work well for it, or do you recommend purchasing bus, train and (for Palermo to Tirana if nowhere else) plane tickets individually?

1. Italy
a. Venice (4) (Sun 6/17, M 6/18, T 6/19, W 6/20)
b. Milan (3) (Th 6/21, Fr 6/22, Sa 6/23)
c. Turin (3) (Sun 6/24, M 6/25, T 6/26)
d. Bologna (3) (W 6/27, Th 6/28, F 6/29)
e. Florence (3) (Sa 6/30, Sun 7/1, M 7/2)
f. Siena (3) (T 7/3, W 7/4, Th 7/5)
g. Rome-Pisa-Vatican City (5) (F 7/6, Sa 7/7, Sun 7/8, M 7/9, T 7/10)
h. Naples (3) (W 7/11, Th 7/12, F 7/13)
i. Palermo (4) (Sa 7/14, Sun 7/15, M 7/16, T 7/17)

2. Albania
a. Tirana (4) (W 7/18, Th 7/19, Fr 7/20, Sa 7/21)

3. Macedonia
a. Skopje (4) (Sun 7/22, M 7/23, T 7/24, W 7/25)

4. Greece
a. Thessalonki, Athens and Mykonos (6) (Th 7/26, Fr 7/27, Sa 7/28, Sun 7/29, M 7/30, T 7/31)

5. Turkey
a. Istanbul (4) (W 8/1, Th 8/2, Fr 8/3, Sa 8/4)

6. Bulgaria
a. Sofia (4) (Sun 8/5, M 8/6, T 8/7, W 8/8)

7. Serbia
a. Belgrade (4) (Th 8/9, Fr 8/10, Sa 8/11, Sun 8/12)

8. Hungary
a. Budapest (3) – preferably on a M, W, Th or F (M 8/13, T 8/14, W 8/15)

9. Germany
a. Berlin (3) – preferably over a weekend (Th 8/16, Fr 8/17, Sa 8/18)
b. Erding and Munich (2) – preferably over a weekend (Sun 8/19, M 8/20)

10. The Czech Republic
a. Prague (3.5 – T 8/21, W 8/22, Th 8/23, Fr 8/24)

Your advice is much appreciated! I've already been to the destinations in Germany, Hungary and Turkey, so I'm not concerned that I haven't allotted enough time to them or to any other destinations on this itinerary.
