Well that depends where you’re planning to go. Downtown Venice, about 5 miles from Venice Airport (VCE-Marco Polo), can be a challenge to drive around. Make things easy for yourself by renting something compact, fuel-efficient, and simple to operate. Take into consideration that Venice is an excellent base to explore some of the bays around Veneto. If your journey is more about tearing down the open road, then you may like something with a bit more trunk space and extra legroom. How about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
