Weather in Venice
Venice experiences very high humidity, with hot weather in July
and August, the height of summer. Temperatures in summer usually
range between 86°F to 91°F (30°C to 33°C), dropping in winter to
between 32°F and 37°F (0°C to 3°C). Due to its location on the
Adriatic coast, Venice often experiences thunderstorms and rain
showers which, particularly in spring and autumn, tend to cause
flooding. Known as the
,'' it is best to pack waterproof shoes or boots
to avoid a soaking. April to October is usually the busiest time in
Venice, though it is a popular destination all year round.
Christmas, Easter, Carnival (in February) and the Venice
International Film Festival (in August) are also busy periods, and
winter is perhaps the best time to travel to Venice to avoid crowds
and find better rates on accommodation.
