Venice: Best place to turn in rental car?

We arrive Venice after a trip by rental car. We are going to turn in the car and go into Venice for a few days. My question: Where is the best place to turn in the Hertz car? Airport or Train station? The lady at Hertz had no idea. Any suggestions?

Piazzale Roma is the spot right in Venice.

If you search Piazzale Roma on this site there are lots of old posts answering this question. We, on several visits to Venice, always dropped the car off (or picked up) at Piazzale Roma.
Then, you are right there to hop on a vaporetto to your hotel.

The airport is a terrible idea - definitely leave it at Piazzale Roma - at the end of the causeway to Venice.

We decided to drop car at airport. It was easy. We then took boat to St. Marks and walked to hotel. Hertz kept telling me to go to airport and would never allow a change online. I tried. All in all, no big deal.
