We were in Venice last August and I can't honestly recommend it. The place was heaving with tourists and it was very hot - 42 degrees. The bridges are very unfriendly for wheelchairs, but as Peedee says, the main sights are probably doable if you can face the crowds and the queues.
We stayed at the free sosta near the football stadium in Treviso and took the train in daily. Treviso is worth a visit, and is a lot friendlier for wheelchairs.
We then decamped to Grado, a lovely resort about 50 kilometres to the east, not far from the Slovenian border, and we had a lovely time in the historic town and crystal clear lagoon.
Many of the other northern towns were too hot and we found a welcome refuge in the Dolomites.
Italy is lovely - but a long drive away. Have fun!
