Venice all night

Wife and I are considering staying up all night before we leave Venice at the ungodly hour of 6:25am.
Past travel experience show we don;t usually sleep the night before we leave and the cost of 160E for 3-4 hours (possible)sleep takes away from what we could spend on other things.
Are there things open? I know we will find out once we are actually there, but we would still like to know in advance.

We were there the week before Easter, I was surprised how quite the City was after dinner. This could be because it was off-season. Also we were staying in a fairly residential area. But even when we went to dinner in more of a tourist area, it was pretty dead after 10:00 pm.

I actually did this once, and assumed it wouldn't be hard considering how nocturnal Rome is. Instead it wasn't easy. The restaurant kicked us out around midnight and we ended up wandering around Venice which at night is so quiet and empty it is kind of creepy. Nothing was open, and it seemed like we were the only people there. We ended up heading to the station at around 3am, where there were people before leaving by train around 6.

Yes, in further reading I discovered that midnight all is quiet, even the taverns.

Don't know what I should have expected, but it was worth asking.

Thanks again.

If you decide to do this be sure to rent the movie "Don't Look Now"--eerie scenes of Venice at night.

As others have said, there is very little open late, but explore around the Rialto market.
