Naples to Florence on overnight train ride?

Hello, I'm planning on driving up from Sicily, and I wish to drop the car at an appropriate city from which to take an overnight (sleeper) train to Florence. I believe that if it's too short a trip, there won't be cuccette available. Would Naples be about right, or should I start in Cosenza? Thanks in advance for any advice!

The trip from Naples to Florence is about3.5-4 hours. From Cosenza it's about an 8 hour train trip.

Why don't you drop the car in Sicily itself? You have a train, for example, which leaves Messina Centrale at 20:30 and arrives at Florence at 7:22 in the morning. No need to change or take the boat with the car, look for the agency at Cosenza etc etc

Enjoy!

Thanks, that's what I'm looking at now. Seems to make the most sense.
