Do you mean to drive all the way? Or put the car on a ferry?

In any event, the drop-off charge in another country would be colossal.

And the rental companies would not let you drive through most of the Balkan countries anyway.

I think Nick's answer is the correct one!

While, as I said, they wouldn't let you drive overland, they also wouldn't let you put the car on a ferry from Italy (insurance questions).

Even if they did, someone would have to go to Greece to pick up the car and drive it back to Italy, and they would charge you for that.

So, no.

Driving a car from Venice to Greece would be incredibly expensive. You're better off using trains or flying.
