Car hire in venice

Jump to last reply

I need to hire a car from Venice (to drive to Innsbruck) and want to do in the least stressful way. There is a Europcar at Piazzle Roma within Venice, reasonably close to the bridge/main road (SS11) that takes you to the mainland. But looking at the spot from above - using google aerial maps - it looks like it might be a nightmare to get to, and cause one huge amount of stress for our travelling party, two adults and three children at the end of August.
My questions to the forum are these: Any one done this? What would be the easiest, simplest way to get there? Could a water taxi/water bus take you pretty much "up to the door" so to speak?
Or, would I better be off returning to the airport and picking up a car from one of the car rental outfits there? Anyone know where the car hire places are in the airport? Are they a long walk from the water taxi drop-off point?
I am staying on Giudecca island so will be attemting this journey from there.
I'd be really grateful for any insights, advice etc.
