She's still around.  My wife wants to take the baby this time.  Perhaps we can also take the nanny, we'll see.

There is simply no way that VCE is as enjoyable with an infant as without.
As @moish said, from what I recall Italy is bigger than VCE but even there was more than fine.
By infant I mean infant, not toddler.
But I do disagree with that. I have been there with and without numerous times and enjoyed it all the same.
Throw on a comfortable baby carrier and you are good to go. If you are in the properties on the other side of the island and have a combined 3 hr mandatory walking in extremely hot and humid weather over shabbos to do, that may be a different story, but I never recommend staying there either way.
Not being able to do a particular activity doesn't make the trip/vacation/getaway any less enjoyable. In Thailand they wouldn't allow me to go on the Zipline with a 3 month old strapped to my back no matter how much I begged and pleaded   but I guarantee I had the same enjoyable Thailand experience as the next guy.

For my honeymoon later this year we're going to Italy for from November 6th to the 19th or 20th with at least two nights in each of Milan, Venice, Florence, Siena/Tuscany, Naples and Rome.

Since that is only 12 nights (if we do 2 in each place) we have three extra nights to disperse. I'm thinking Florence and Naples since that will allow us time to do a day trip to Pompeii.  Any suggestions on the 3rd extra night? Milan is more or less out because we'd have to change hotels and if we're changing anyway might as well head to a new city. The other option is we spend a night in London visiting friends...

Thoughts, suggestions?

Personally, I'd skip Milan unless by Milan you mean Como or if you are an art enthusiast and need to see Da Vinci's Last Supper.

Instead, If you will anyways be in the region of Naples/Pompeii, I would recommend to go further south to Sorrento/Capri/Positano

If you're going to Pompeii, maybe you'd also be interested in Herculaneum/Ercolano.  If you go to either, please do a TR.
