This is our first pass at the itinerary and we plan to travel using Eurail. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you

Looks far too rushed to me. Expect travel days to be long and exhausting, and for you to get hardly any quality time in the city on those days. That means you have effectively zero days in Berlin and Naples, only one day in Paris, Florence, Rome and Athens, etc.

To properly do this itinerary, I'd recommend at least twice as much time. Alternatively, cut half the cities and save them for a separate trip in the future.

Hello! I agree with Sander. Also Nice is worth more than a day.

On the other hand, if you're really limited by time and won't have another opportunity to see Europe anytime soon, it's acceptable. It reminds me of the Chinese way of travelling. It sucks if you happen to not feel well on a particular day, then you'll miss out on a city because you'll have to move on.

So there are pros and cons. Your itinerary is definitely not a relaxing one, and you'll get to know each place on the surface only. If that's what you're fine with, then it's all good.
