If you pick one of the cities, then it would be worth it to rent a car to explore the area around the city. For instance, if you pick Florence, you can travel around to wineries in Tuscany, drive to Pisa and the beach and go to Siena and Assisi.If you choose Milan, you can visit the Lakes Region and sample wine in Piemonte, go hiking in the Alps and visit the Sacri Monti (look this up in Google).If you go to Rome, you can drive out to the beach, go to the Castelli Romani, and head to Hadrian’s Villa and Villa D’Este.But if you are planning to see Rome, Milan, Florence, and Venice in 10 days, I would just buy regular train tickets (not an Italy Rail Pass) between each destination and stay in the city without a car. Venice has water taxis and no cars. Florence is small and you can walk everywhere and there is no place to park. Milan and Rome are large but have good public transportation. Another solution is to find an organized tour that is going to these cities that will take you to places you want to visit along the way.
