Greece and Italy 2 week itinerary

Hi all! I'm attempting to plan a two week trip to Greece and Italy and could use some advice. There's so much to see but this trip is to get us acquainted with these countries and will hopefully be back with more time to spend at each. We're very adventurous and prefer to see/do as much as we can. This is what we have so far:

9/2: Arrive in Athens at 8:45pm

9/3: explore acropolis and area. (Could leave this evening for Santorini)

9/4: maybe half day trip to temple of Poseidon. Leave for Santorini @ 8:50pm

9/5: Santorini

9/6: Santorini

9/7: Santorini. Fly to Venice @ 9:35pm

9/8: Venice

9/9: Venice. Travel by train to Florence around 7pm

9/10: Florence

9/11: Day trip from Florence to Pisa and surrounding area

9/12: Florence. Travel by train to Rome around 7pm

9/13: Rome

9/14: Rome

9/15: Leave for home at 9:30am

Any input would be appreciated. Only the main flights (to Greece and leaving home from Rome) have been booked already. Thanks!

Um..... it's really not good. It's too much travel without any time to explore. Cut out Florence and Pisa and add that time to Venice and Rome. A single full day in Venice and Florence is a waste of time.

Well stated. It is possible traveling from Venice to Rome to spend some time in Florence on the way, storing your bags at the SM Novella Station, maybe leaving after lunch. Also I feel that traveling first thing in the AM is better than in the evening.

You need more time for Italy. We did Venice/Florence/Rome with Pisa and Positano side trips all in a week but I wish we could have spent a week in each city. So much to see and do in each city and you don't want to feel disappointed that you rushed through everything.
