I visited Venice in every season. Despite the tourists, there is always a place of unparalleled romance and culture. The history, the colors and the splashing of the water. Venice is always very attractive to go. There is no bad time to visit Venice. Each season has its attractions and charm. 

In the summer you can enjoy the warm summer evenings; For example, in a gondola through the romantic canals. The busiest months are from May until September. If you want to avoid the crowds but still want to have good weather, then I recommend to visit Venice in April. If you want to escape the city when the hot temperature rises I recommend to take this escape route.
