I biked between Florence and Pisa. It's a fairly easy ride because it's in a river valley. There are little roads you can take which mostly stay close to the Arno river. I'm still a fan of detailed paper maps over electronics. It's hard to get an overview by looking at a small screen. The Touring Club Italiano 1:200,000 series are excellent maps.

I haven't biked between Florence and Rome. That will be challenging due to the topography. I did bike within Rome and I mostly enjoyed it, but I'm accustomed to urban riding.
