It only yakes 2h35min on the train so I assume you want to spend the night somewhere else. If you want to see somewhere different you could go up to Trento or Bolzano and pick up the train to Milan in Verona, or one of the places at the bottom of Lake Garda - whose names always escape me :(

That's true, going from Venice to Milano is really short, it doesn't need an overnight stop at all. You think about that to see another place, right? A stop on the Garda Lake is a good idea, some nice towns are Desenzano, Sirmione or Perschiera just to name few.

Or, if you want to change your way and don't go straight to Milano, you can even consider Bologna which is at a reasonable distance from both Venice and Milano.

We did Verona for one night between Venice to Milano and the old Roman buldings were a nice contrast with the other two cities.
