Venice Italy weather, what is the best time to go to Venice? And how is the Venice temperature each season?

How about the Venice climate? Is it the same as in the United States or United Kingdom? And perhaps more importantly what will be the weather forecast in Venice this week?

Ready to go? The Venice weather is important when you're going on holiday to Venice.

Of course you want to have blue skies, not too cold nor too hot and certainly 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.

Venice Italy Weather, here are some facts: 

Which weather type do you have to consider?

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

The phenomenon of 'acqua 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 the romance? These winter months could be a perfect fit for you,,,, love will keep you warm. Read more about winter activities in the Venice Winter. During these activities it will be very crowded with tourism.

Spring: These are the months March, April and May. For me this is the best time to go on holiday to Venice. It doesn't rain as often and the temperature is pleasant. While, in these months you will need to bring a jacket, on sunny days you can easily take it off. Be warned; during Easter weekend it 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 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. Actually, a warm summer afternoon can turn into a thunderstorm... "Sometimes wonderful". 

Also, it is inconvenient busy in Venice. Many tourists make a day trip to the city. A visit in June is still okay, but July and August it is very busy around St. Mark's Square. I've been to Venice several times during the summer. The heat reflected brightly on the stone and water. I recommend to explore the city in a different season.

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