Plan my Florence trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Florence is an approximately 17- hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Florence. Traveling from Sao Paulo in April, expect Florence to be a bit cooler, temps between 22°C and 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) to allow enough time to take a train to Bologna.
