The Venice Italy Temperature
Summers are hot, winters cold and bleak.

Which clothes do you bring to Venice? The Venice Italy temperature peaks in July and August with temperatures over 35°C (90°F).

And in the winter, there are almost no temperatures below 0°. Please bring your shoes. Because the weather in Venice remains variable. The most rain falls in November and June.

So comfortable walking shoes are a must. It is cold and bleak in winter, so you must bring your gloves and a warm scarf. The fresh breeze due to the cold water makes it wintry cold.

The temperature in Venice, Italy is now:

The best time to visit Venice is in the spring or fall. This is the period when the peak flow of tourists leaves the city. The temperature in Venice is comfortable in these months. While it is excellent at night and along the Grand Canal, it is more relaxed. In the spring/autumn, I recommend bringing a sweater or a light jacket for the evening.

Summer is the peak season with many day-trippers. Hot temperatures. Sun cream is needed. For museum and church attendance, take a scarf or something with long sleeves. Don´t wear a short skirt or shorts. It is the most expensive season, with higher rates for hotels, restaurants, gondolas, and taxis.

I have never taken rain boots with me to Venice, Italy. You also don't have to do this because they prepare unique walkways for over the water.

You can hear a siren if the sea level rises above 110cm. A flood takes 6 hours due to the sea tides. 

Most areas of the city are more than 100cm above sea level. However, some lower areas begin to flood if the sea level rises above 80cm. This is mainly around St. Marc Square. A three-day prediction for the water levels is available on the official site of Venice.
