Venice Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(Venice, Veneto, Italy)

Spring and summer are optimum times to visit the city of Venice, as the weather is warm and generally quite sunny, although really the tourist season runs throughout the year. Venice is at its busiest in July and August and it can be extremely hot and humid at this time of the year, with occasional afternoon thunderstorms.

At the end of the high season, the mild weather often continues, and days may be warm and clear - or alternatively they can be cold, damp and foggy. The best months for sightseeing are March to June, September and October, when the city is not too hot and the weather is generally pleasant.

Venice Weather and ClimateIn the winter the streets tend to be much quieter and in January they are almost deserted. Between October and March, Venice's seasonal flooding occurs, known as the 'acqua alta'. The site of the Piazza underwater is very memorable and it is sometimes deep enough for rowing boats to be used. During this period, duck-boards are used to move around the city without getting wet and in some low-lying areas, waterproof boots provide the only way to get around.

The weather can prove unpredictable from November to February, although it is generally fairly mild. There can be heavy rain and occasional icy Artic winds, so be sure to bring a warm overcoat, scarf and gloves. If you are planning to visit outdoor locations, water-resistant boots or shoes with a good grip are recommended as the pavements can get very wet after heavy rain, and an umbrella can be a useful item to carry. Venice under snow is not uncommon and quite unforgettable.
