Hello again everyone. As I continue to plan for my December trip to Florence, I'm considering taking the train up to Venice and spending one night there. I'm still thinking about the best way to pack for an overnight, knowing I'll probably have to carry my things with me unless wherever I stay will let me store them there. I wondered if you could recommend a place to stay for one night. It would be wonderful to have a view of the canal, but since it's just one night, I don't know if that will be possible. I haven't done much research on Venice yet, but I'd like to visit Murano and Burano and see the square all lit up. I like the idea of wandering the streets, enjoying the architecture and soaking up the ambience.
That's about a 3 hour trip on the train one way, correct? Once I get there, is it possible to walk to the city center?
Also, not directly related to Venice, but a general question, I would assume that in December everyone will be wearing masks on public transit, correct?
Thank you for any suggestions!
