hi.....it's time to be realistic and better informed. You have a week and wish to visit waaay too many destinations all over Italy....Venice, Rome, Pisa, Amalfi Coast, Milan (and possibly switching the AC for Naples)....stop, take a breath and create a more manageable and enjoyable trip.

A MAP will indicate where all these destinations are in relation to each other and a guidebook will let you know what there is to see and do IN these places. Venice and Rome are s.i.g.n.i.f.i.c.a.n.t. destinations and Pisa and the Amalfi Coast are not 'day trips' from Rome. You are trying to "see it all", cramming in just names of places without any concept of their complexity nor geographical distances and travel time.

Speaking of, there is travel time in between each change in destination and it's always more time than you think. Plan 1/2 day with every 'travel day'. You do not have "4 days in Rome"...

7 days/7 nights, with travel time, fly in Milan/train out Milan:

--arrive Milan, train directly to Venice 1/2 day

--Venice 2.5 days/3 nights

--train to Rome 1/2 day

--Rome 2.5 days/3 nights

--train to Milan 1/2 day

--Milan 1/2 day/1 night

--train to Switzerland
