Normally, I think of using the preposition "à " when referring to a city. In this passage, they land in (à) Paris but they take the train to (pour) Florence. I am guessing that Florence is not an exception as a city but rather one takes the train for or to a city using the preposition, pour, instead of à. Is that correct?

Yes, you go to/arrive at -à , but take train/plane/boat etc (destined) for - pour.
Using "pour" in case of travel, you can think of it meaning "destined for" or "bound to".
