Venice to Florence to Venice Itinerary

Hello! A girlfriend and I are coming to Florence for a group yoga retreat from Oct 18-23. We wanted to start in Venice for a few days before heading to Florence and flights are much cheaper to do roundtrip from Chicago to Venice. It seems pretty easy to take a direct train from Venice to Florence. My question is for after the yoga retreat ends at 10am on the 23rd. We were thinking of flying out of Venice on the 24th. Could anyone recommend a place to visit for one afternoon/night in between Florence and Venice - assuming we would fly out of Venice the next afternoon at 3pm?

Note that Venezia S Lucia is on the island, and that the Mestre station is on the mainland near the airport.

Bologna is the perfect stop between Florence and Venice and is also a wonderful City to Visit

Enjoy
