Best route to Dolomites (Ortisei) from Venice Marco Polo

We'll be collecting our hire car at Venice Marco Polo Airport and driving to Ortisei. Which route would you recommend? The E70/E45/A22 seems the obvious choice according to Google maps but any local advice would be appreciated!

When we come back to drop the car off at the airport, how long should we leave (roughly) for the drive - are there any areas that get particularly heavy traffic en route in the morning (6 - 9am)?

Thank you.

The E numbers are part of a UN system of numbering through routes in Europe. Just like in the UK, the E numbers seldom appear on road signs. I would think the best way is A4 to a bit beyond Verona, then A22.

Incidentally, another post indicates that you will be staying in Venice, in which case you would do better to pick up or drop off at Piazzale Roma rather than wasting an hour going all the way to the airport.
