Advice for budget trip to Venice, espec trains & Groupons

Jump to last reply

I will be ending a tour in Italy June 19, but want to add a couple of days in Venice and from there to Zurich. Are trains my best option? Any suggestions on how to get the best prices?
Do I take the train to ST Lucia, and , here's a stupid question, is that the mainland or the island of Venice (Did I even say that right?) So I am alone and 68, how do I ensure my location , probably an airbnb, is not too far to walk? SInce my budget is low, am I better off staying on the mainland and going to the island by day? I have found 2 concerts that look really special, Musica A Palazzo and Interpreti Veneziano; however, they are at night. Will the water busses run late? How late?

I guess my main issues are the problem of leaving/arriving with luggage, and being in Venice at night. How do I juggle proximity to the trains for the first and convenience/ambience for the day trips. I would rather find a cheap place and stay on the island itself, but will that really complicate my need for trains? Thanks for your patience. I haven't explained it very well.

Also, I found some Groupon.it deals I want to buy, but I can't get them to accept my info; they say my email is unknown. Anybody know what to do? I am really spinning my travel wheels here stuck in computer limbo of some sort and wasting too much time getting nowhere. Thanks for any help.
