>From MXP take the 'Malpensa Express' train to Cadorna Station. Trains to Venice depart from Central Station. Cadorna area is ok, but forget Central station for wandering around alone at night, unless you fancy being crowded-in by junkies of various descriptions. So just get of the Malpensa Express, stay in the area and take the Metro to Central Station in the morning.
See my reply to Callie's question for hotel suggestions. I can give you more if you let me know what sort of price range you were thinking of.
