Plan my trip to Venice with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Venice is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Venice due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Sao Paulo in April, expect Venice to be slightly colder, temps between 21°C and 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Cortina d'Ampezzo.
