Hi I'm planning to go travelling around Italy for about 16 days, starting in Venice and ending up in Sardinia.

My plan is the following:
Days 1-2: Venice
Days 3-4: Verona
Days 5-6: Milan
Days 7-8: Bologna
Days 9-10: Florence (Pisa)
Days 11-12: Rome
Days 13-14: Naples
Days 15-16: Sardinia

I was just wondering if anyone has any places they would recommend me going to. Also, is my plan even okay for me to do, in like is it realistic? This is my first time travelling so I want to make sure I don't miss anything important or go wrong!

Travel time between these places will take up half a day or more, and on top of that you lose time packing, checking into your accommodation, etc. Plus just being on the road is a tiring experience. It basically means that you'll only have a single worthwhile day at these destinations, which (especially for Rome) isn't nearly enough. I'd either add a week to your itinerary, or cut at least 3 destinations and spread their days over the remaining destinations. Particularly when you don't have experience travelling efficiently, you're way better off travelling well, and seeing places in depth, rather than trying to cram in so much that it'll leave you dazed.
