Given the time frame, I would probably eliminate Venice and just do Rome/Florence. I would do 3 days Florence and 5 days Rome. As Perche stated, Florence is a matter of taste and not my favorite city in Italy, but you should have enough to fill three days (including a side trip to Pisa).

In Florence, arrange for tickets to see the David before you go. November should not be crowded with Tourists, but it will eliminate having to stand in a long line if it happens to be crowded.

In Rome, try to get tickets for the Scavi tour under St. Peter's. There is also a Vatcan Gardens tour that has been sold out the times that I have been in Rome. I have also heard good things about Villa d'Este in Tivoli and their gardens (mainly fountains), if you are looking for a day trip out of Rome.
