Weather in Venice Italy

Venice could be called the best city in the world in many respects,  but the weather in Venice definitely won’t win any awards. Still you can often find great weather... if you visit at the right time of year. Read on and discover when that is...

Venice in Winter

July and August

These two months can be really hot and very humid – occasionally reaching around 34 C / 90 F. Combine that with the masses of people thronging Venice during these months and you'll realize why I recommend that you rather try and avoid visiting during this time of year.

December to April

December until the end of April is often bitterly cold and on misty winter days the damp really seems to soak into your bones.

The good thing about the winter weather though is that it keeps a lot of tourists away, Venetians seem to pop out of the woodwork once again and you'll get to see real Venetian life - this gallery gives you an idea of what I mean.

Then there's the fact that the  narrow alleys and canals are hauntingly beautiful in a winter’s mist,  Christmas in Venice is really magical and of course there's the Venice Carnival.  All in all I'd say the this is a pretty good time to be in Venice.

October and November

Early October can be lovely with mild and sunny weather, however the later into October you go the more likely it is that you'll get cool and rainy weather.

If you are coming to Venice in winter the only month to absolutely avoid weather wise is November.

November is the month of the year when it rains the most and it is also the month when the high water flooding or acqua alta occurs most frequently.

Getting your feet wet on a freezing day can be a highly miserable way to experience the city. So if you are here in November bring your galoshes!

May, June and September

Venice weather is best in May, June and September and these are the best months to visit. The weather in Venice during this time is very pleasant, warm but not humid, and the crowds are reasonably small.
