The weather in Venice varies and is very unpredictable. The climate, however, has Mediterranean influences. Temperatures in winter rarely go below 0°c (32° f), thanks to the calm sea breeze. The temperatures In summer can run up to approximately 35°c (95° f).
Venice is located in northeastern Italy. The climate is not milder than on the other side of Italy which is connected to the Mediterranean sea. Because Venice is situated in a lagoon the humidity can be very high.
The months of July and August are hot in the daytime and sultry in the evening. In the autumn, the fog brings a nostalgic atmosphere. Throughout the whole year there is a chance it will rain, but November is the wettest month.
