Travel tips for Rome - Florence - Venice - Milan - Paris

Looking at Euro train pass for travel between Italy and France.

Rome - 3 Days
Florence - 1 Day
Venice - 2 Days
Milan - 2 Days
Paris - 4 & 1/2 Days

Is it doable?

Give Rome at least 5 days, Florence 2 days, Pisa 1 day (optional).

Just wondering if paris is a must go for u? In terms of distance, switzerland is very near to milan. U can easily take train from milan and visit lugano, lucerne and fly back from zurich. Alternatively visit other sites in Italy, eg cinque terre, tuscany countryside

Wow, its very touch and go.. I spent 5 days in Rome, and regretted allocating such little time to Rome.

It really depends on what your interests are. I didn't enjoy Florence cuz I'm not into arts.. and like previous post mentioned, Switzerland is close to Milan..

I did Zurich-Milan-Venice-Florence-Rome

I did a 5 cities in 12 days europe before. Doable If u r still young and fit. Going 5 difference places with train ride.

My itinerary was
Paris 4 nights
Interlaken 2 nights
Lucerne 1 nights
Florence 2 nights
Rome 3 nights

I did "go" to Milan just to transit the train to Florence after I departed Switzerland.

If u never been to Switzerland or would visit europe only just once for experience. Don't skip Switzerland since from Paris to Italy is along the way.

I personally feel that 4.5 days is too much for paris. I would rather you spend more days in rome as per others said. Better yet, travel slowly up and visit the umbria region.

Thinking of getting Euro train pass. Worth it or should I just get individual tickets?

Will it be of a trouble to take the overnight train from Milan to Paris? Read online that there will be overnight train. And cabin with two sleepers only.

imho individual tickets is a better choice
if you book early enough you can save a ton

overnight train is a good choice if you are doing it for the experience or to save time
not the most comfortable way to travel and definitely not much cheaper than taking a flight
