Venice Weather Forecast

Studying the Venice weather forecast is good preparation for your trip to Venice, Italy. "The City of Water" is in the north of Italy, bordered on the northeast by the Adriatic Sea.

Venice has 118 small islands between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Venice has a warm, humid temperate climate with hot summers and no dry season.

Below is the weather forecast for the next two days. 

Because the city is floating on a web of canals, it is subject to high humidity throughout the year. In combination with the summer heat, this can lead to uncomfortable conditions. Despite this, July and August are the peak tourist crowds. So, book a hotel in advance if you brave the heat, humidity, and groups of tourists!

July is the hottest month in Venice, with an average (day + night) temperature of 23°C (74°F). But the temperature you feel can be much warmer. For example, you can calculate + 5°C due to the humidity, sunshine reflecting the water, and stones. 

  • The coldest month is January, with an average of 3°C (37°F).
  • The month of July has the most daily sunshine hours.
  • The wettest months are June and November, with an average of 90mm rain.

Summer in Venice starts in June, with temperature peaks in July and August. The temperature rises between 30°C (86°F) and 40°C (104°F).

Luckily, the summer also has rain for refreshments, but this happens occasionally. Unfortunately, the high temperatures and humidity mean that there are frequent thunderstorms.

A thunderstorm can disrupt your travel plans, but it gives a romantic picture with the drops of rain pattering on the canal.

July is the sunniest month of the year, with nine hours of sun per day. However, the best month to swim in the sea is in August. The average sea temperature is 26°C (79°F). You can swim on the long stretched beach of the island ‘Lido’ (15 minutes by vaporetto boat).

Winter and Venice Weather Forecast

The best time to visit the city is in April till June or September and October. During these periods, the peak of the tourist season is avoided. You also have fewer problems with humidity and winter conditions.

The busiest tourist season starts on June 4. Venice will be less crowded after September 13. And did you know the hottest day of the year in Venice is, on average, July 29?
