What you didn´t know about the Climate in Venice Italy...

What kind of climate in Venice Italy do you expect? Noooo rain, please... Yes, the weather keeps us busy. And especially if we go on holiday. I have visited Venice every season.

Each season has its charm and magic. I will tell you in this new article about the climate and the best period to visit.

How is the climate in Venice Italy?

Venice has a temperate climate. The warm wind and the high humidity rate make the summer sultry, and the winters are damp and cold. But the Venice winter with a crystal clear sky is wonderful… And quieter, in terms of tourism...!

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. On the other hand, 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.

July and August are hot in the daytime and sultry in the evening. In the autumn, the fog brings a nostalgic atmosphere. There is a chance it will rain throughout the year, but November is the wettest month.

Is Venice is drowning?

The climate in Venice also has another well-known phenomenon. This is the "acqua alta" and can best be described as a flood or a sudden tide. When this happens, there will be a sound of a siren in advance.

But… don't be scared… Some plazas will flood. The people of Venice will put ramps on the streets so tourists can continue exploring the city. Boots are essential during this "acqua alta"… Well,,, It can be a kind of romance to carry your loved one, so she will not get wet feet.

What is the best period to visit Venice, Italy?

As a lover of Venice, Italy, whatever the weather will be, the city will not lose its magic and charm. So choose the season which is best for you!

The ideal months to visit Venice, Italy, are April / May and September / October. These months will provide you the best weather.

It is hard to explain, but even in the summer, when most tourists visit the city, there are lovely authentic places where you can go far away from the crowd. And the summer can be humid, but it's great to take an afternoon off and go to Lido Beach.

I have visited Venice in all seasons, and then you notice the climate in Venice Italy. The temperature is shifting, and a new season is coming in.

October can still be really great, with sometimes degrees above 70. In the evening, it gets chilly.

And in the winter? Well, one time, I spent one whole week in January, and it was one of my best times. Despite most days being very foggy. You can't see a thing, and views across the water and from sightseeing lookouts are bad. So your pictures of this colorful city will also be a bit dark. The best thing for me; is fewer tourists and the serene atmosphere from the mist above the water canals.
