Weather Overview for Venice

 

Venice, ‘the city of water’, is located in the north of Italy upon the marshy Venetian Lagoon which lies adjacent to the Adriatic Sea in the northeast. Venice stretches across 118 small islands between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers.

 

Venice is most well known for its canals which weave through the shallow lagoon. The unique city is Europe's largest urban car free area- in the old part of town, the 150 canals replace roads, and every form of transport is on water or on foot

Because the city basically floats on a web of canals (much like Amsterdam) it is therefore subject to high humidity year round. When combined with the summer heat, this can lead to fairly uncomfortable weather conditions. Despite this, July and August are the peak tourist months and the city becomes almost entirely booked out. So if you choose to endure the heat, humidity and throngs of tourists, be sure to book ahead!

 

 

 

Summer

 

Summer in Venice begins in June which sees average highs of 25°C and lows of 16°C before the temperatre climbs to the summer highs in July and August when average maximums are in the high 20’s and the mercury can often rise above 30°C.

 

Summer sees steady rainfall; the evening showers can come as a much needed relief from the heat. The high heat and humidity means there are frequent dramatic thunderstorms which crash in the skies above the canals. Thunderstorms may disrupt your plans but they could be said to add to the romantic ambience of the canal city.

 

Storms usually leave a clear sky and sunshine levels are very good in summer. July is the sunniest month in the year with nine hours of sunshine per day. 

 

Winter

 

This is actually Venice’s driest season but rainfall tends to alter in type rather than frequency. Lighter showers that can last for hours and hours are characteristic of winter rain. January is the coldest month with an average high temperature of 6°C and average low -1°C. February and December are only just warmer. When the Adriatic winds blow they can be bitterly cold as they cross the waters of the canals and wash over the city. Come prepared with gloves, scarves and warm coat if you plan on cruising the town in the famous Venetian gondolas.

 

There are many clear, sunny days throughout winter which are perfect for sightseeing. However, the sunshine averages at three hours per day so it is not to be relied upon.

 

Autumn and Spring

 

The shoulder seasons are periods of rapid change. Closer to summer, both seasons see pleasantly warm days with refreshingly cool nights. May sees an average high of 21°C and an average low of 12°C. October ranges from a high of 18°C and a low of 9°C. Both months see similar rainfall but late spring is much sunnier than early autumn.

 

If you can avoid peak season in Venice, it is recommended that you do so. The best times to visit the city are April through until June, or September and October. During these times you will see plenty of clear days and sunshine whilst avoiding the peak tourist season, high humidity, and also the dreary winter conditions.

Venice experiences unpredictable conditions all year round, one moment it will be sunny then suddenly the blue sky will be swaddled in grey. However, everyone knows that Venice isn’t a city you visit for the weather; it is a unique, historical city with endless sights – just being there is an unforgettable experience.
