Venice is largely deemed an all-season destination, but the significant air temperature and humidity variations should not be disregarded since these fluctuations are as decisive as it gets for the way one can spend their vacation in Venice. Humidity, however, is a feature which remains constant all the year round.

Thus, Venice is best to be visited between April and October, when temperatures are not only bearable (maximum values are reached in July and August, around 30 to 33 degrees Celsius), but pleasant also. The humidity might create a certain level of discomfort, just like the virtually unpredictable showers and thunderstorms, but, despite such aspects, Venice is nothing but a fairytale from spring to autumn, which is precisely why huge flows of tourists flock to Venice this time of the year.

In winter (more precisely, November to March), and in particular due to its location on the Adriatic Sea and to its lagoon-like structure, humidity increases. A phenomenon locally called acqua alta, which basically refers to the flooding of the lagoon caused by the considerable rainfall, might also pose some problems. The cold season also sees the coming of lower temperatures which stabilize around a medium value of 8 degrees Celsius (minimums don’t drop below 1 or 0 degrees Celsius). Tourists who do choose to visit Venice in winter must make sure they are all geared up with adequate waterproof boots, in order to avoid being soaked and keep their feet dry. On the other hand, Venice is ideal between November and March for globetrotters who prefer to avoid clustered destinations since, indeed, Venice is not a very popular destination in the cold season.
