Ready to go? The Venice weather is essential when you're going on holiday to Venice. Of course, you want to have blue skies, not too cold nor too hot and indeed no rain...

I have visited Venice every season. Each season has its charm and magic. On this page, I will tell you more about the weather in Venice.

2. Venice Italy Weather, the best period to go: 

No one can predict Venice's weather forecast precisely. However, mostly a blue sky in the morning when opening your hotel window foretells enough to have a lovely day in Venice. So here are some Venice weather facts: 

Venice Italy Weather at San MarcoVenice Italy Weather in the Winter at San Marco
  • Throughout the year, there is an average of 82 inches of rain
  • August is the warmest month
  • January is the coldest month
  • November is the wettest month
  • February is the driest month

Winter: These are the months of December, January, and February. The temperatures are sometimes below zero, and occasionally it is foggy.

This Venice, Italy, the weather makes it feel colder. The beautiful thing about these cold months is that there are fewer tourists. The town exudes tranquility, and the silence and steamy channels can be very romantic.

The phenomenon of 'aqua alta' (high water) occurs in these months regularly. When this happens, some squares around the San Marco Basilica in Venice will flood.

Are you two lovebirds and want to experience romance? These winter months could be a perfect fit for you;,,, love will keep you warm. Read more about winter activities in Venice Winter. During these activities, it will be very crowded with tourists.

Venice Italy Weather

Spring: The Venice, Italy, temperature is rising in the month's March, April, and May. This is the best time to go on holiday to Venice. It doesn't rain as often, and the temperature is pleasant. While you will need to bring a jacket in these months, you can quickly take it off on sunny days. Be warned; Easter weekend is one of the busiest weekends with tourism.

Summer: These are the months of June, July, and August. In July and August, it can be uncomfortably hot and stuffy in Venice. This hot weather is particularly true if you walk through the alleys or on the maze of canals with a gondola. The storm that occasionally occurs in the summer provides a refreshing atmosphere. A warm summer afternoon can turn into a thunderstorm... "Sometimes wonderful." 

Also, it is inconvenient and busy in Venice. Many tourists make a day trip to the city. A visit in June is still okay, but it is bustling around St. Mark's Square in July and August. I've been to Venice several times during the summer. And I recommend exploring the city in a different season. It is almost too warm weather to enjoy because the heat reflects brightly on stones and water. 

Autumn: These are the months of September, October, and November. The temperatures can still be delightful. However, there is more wind. November is the wettest month in Venice, so keep this in mind. Just like spring, this is a great time to visit!
