Venice to Bled via train (via Villach?)

Trying hard to find train schedule (or understand same) to take us from Venice to Lesce Bled. I believe we have to change trains in Villach but totally unclear. Also, can we rent a car in Italy (or Slovenia) and drive to Croatia and return? Grazie!

Call a few Italian auto rental agencies and ask. Some agencies will allow your taking a car into Croatia. The only way you will know is to ask. You may find it easier to take your car in Slovenia instead of Italy.

?Create a list of
companies you want to research. Do that by
searching google for ‘auto rental Italy’. You will
find 50 suggestions such as autoeurope, avis, alamo,
sixt, europecar, and Kemwel.

I usually call a few of
them to get a feel for the current rates, since they
change frequently. My experience with Sixt (a
German firm) was best.

They permitted me to drive
into E Europe at no additional cost. I also had
success with Kemwel (a British firm).

Hi Merlin,
Check this route:
Venice to Villach dep 14:44 arr 17:40
Villach to Lesce-Bled dep 18:04 arr 19:05
I took this same route in May (although did not get off at Lesce Bled but continued on to Ljubljana).
