Any suggestions on itinerary- Italy- Greece in September?

My husband and I are going to a wedding in Athens and wanted to fly in earlier and incl a trip to Italy.

We have a ff ticket reserved from Orlando arriving to Pisa-Florence on Monday morning (Labor Day). We have a wedding to attend the following Sunday in Athens and are flying back from Pisa-Florence, the Wednesday after the wedding (total 10 days/9 nights).

We are in our mid 30s and are traveling without our kids. We will be each taking each a travelpack/backpack to make it easier to get around and wanted to include Florence sightseeing, Venice, Athens, and possibly a Greek island. We realized going down to Rome maybe asking for too much, unless we change itinerary. Here's what we had in mind:

Monday-Tues Florence- take Tues. evening train to Venice
Weds-Fri Venice
Fri-Tues (fly out Fri from Venice) to Athens/Greece
Tues return on early morn flight to Venice & rtn to Pisa-Florence via train
Wednesday Pisa-Florence rtn flight home

We thought of making Paros as our central stay while in Greece, and coming in to Athens for the wedding on Sunday and sightseeing on Monday, OR just stay in Athens and take day trips out. WOULD LOVE to really do Athens & Santorini, but don't know since wedding is on Sunday if we could manage that.

Any suggestions will be appreciated from those familiar with trips to these regions.

We are looking at getting a return flight from Athens to Pisa-Florence on tuesday.

The Europe Board would be a better place to find expertise on your question.
