1Eurail questions get asked so often, and the answer is always the same. Here's daveelmstrom's reply to the same question less than two weeks ago:
The rail pass vs. pay-as-you-go debate has been discussed many times on this forum. Basically, the only way to know is to add up the price of all of your rail tickets and compare that to the cost of the pass. Just depends how often and how far you are traveling.
What's more concerning is the very very little time you have in your Italian destinations before jumping on a train to visit other destinations. Have you read this thread?:
Remember, 2 nights is less than 2 full days once you take travel times into account. Most experienced travelers would rather spend more time in fewer places than you're doing--a minimum of 3 nights anywhere worth visiting, and a minimum of 4 nights in major cities like Rome or Paris. Trust me, Rome has a lot more to offer than EuroDisney.
6 destinations in 13 nights means you'll spend very little time in the places you came to see and a lot of time in-between them.
I strongly urge you to consider dropping the destination you're least enthused about in order to to give more time to places you are more enthused about.
Frankly, I think it's the combination of an over-asked question (clearly you didn't follow the stated guidelines of searching before asking a question) and an unreasonable itinerary that have kept others from responding to your question.
