There are no direct trains between Paris and Firenze/Florence - though you can choose to travel during the day, or this overnight option.

Thiough if you take the overnight train from Paris you will arrive in Milano, where you will be changing trains, at around 06:00.

Take care  to allow sufficient time to make the connection between trains in Milano.

If the train from Paris arrives late (and it's not particularly punctual) you may have to re-book for the journey on to Firenze/Florence.

It's why we've singled out Loco2, as the option it sells for making the end-2-end journey on a single booking, allows more than 1hr 20mins to change trains.

If the train from Paris does arrive on time, a good option is to pass through the ticket check gates at Milano Centrale station, so that between trains, you can access the food/drink outlets in the main departure hall.
