Default 11 Days in Italy

As you may know, I'm trying to come up with an itinerary for the Italy portion of my trip. My concern is how much travel time will affect the plan, and if I'm giving us enough time:

Day 01: Fly into Milan, proceed directly to Venice
Don't really care about Milan, we're flying from London

Day 02: Venice >> Florence

Day 03: Florence

Day 04: Florence >> Pisa >> Cinque Terre
Just need a couple hours in Pisa for the photo-op

Day 05: Cinque Terre

Day 06: Cinque Terre >> Ascoli Piceno
Not sure how long this will take: this province is near the east coast slightly north of Rome. Looking at the rail map we'll go down the west coast from CT, go east at Rome, and travel slightly north up the east coast and into the province. I don't think there's an easy way to do this, but it's important to me to get there.

Day 07: Ascoli Piceno

Day 08: Ascoli Piceno >> Rome

Day 09: Rome

Day 10: Rome

Day 11: Rome

Is there an easier way to do this, should I eliminate something? I'm not doing much planning for the rest of my trip, but I want to make sure I get this part right so everything comes together.

Default Italy trip!

Hey there! 11 days in Italy sounds awesome! A convenient option may be a Contiki trip if you don't want to worry about the hassle of planning transportation, hotels, meals, etc. I've heard the Simply Italy trip is awesome. I saw Venice, Florence, and Rome at the end of my European Discovery trip and had such an awesome time. Take plenty of cheesy pictures in front of the Leaning Tower and drink a lot of wine on a gondola ride! Have a great trip!
