Best time to take a vacation to Venice

  • Best Time to Go

    The city is best-visited any time between April to June and September to November, depending on what one desires to do during their Venice vacation. The December to March period is avoided because of heavy downpours that occur. July and August tend to be hot and humid and the local beaches on the mainland are the only refuge. During fall and spring, there are fewer people visiting Venice and the weather is pleasant too, which makes it the ideal time for those wishing to avoid the crowds. May to September is the time to travel to Venice to soak in the ambiance of festivity and revelry.

Insider tips for Venice travel

  • Dry Tour

    The Dry Tour in Venice is among the best wine bars in Italy with the best atmosphere.

  • Pasticceria

    Taste the crystallized fruit cakes of Pasticceria Tonolo, an over-century old patisserie.

  • Hostaria da Franz

    Trying trademark seafood at Venice is incomplete without trying the risotto alleseppie—rice cooked in cuttlefish ink—at Hostaria da Franz.

  • Risorante al Buso

    For the Venice experience of eating by the beautiful lights of the canal, opt for one of the restaurants that line the Rialto Bridge like Risorante Al Buso.

  • Pizza al Volo

    The huge pizza slices offered at very reasonable prices by Pizza al Volo in Campo Santa Margherita are most welcome.

  • Introduction

    Travelers continually succumb to the alluring charms of Venice, finding themselves involuntarily saying, “Ah, Venice” randomly during their trip. Venice is technically a lagoon city made of over 100 small islands, making it a one-of-a-kind and immensely interesting place to visit. From its world famous canals (rather than regular roads) to its seemingly endless supply of quaint and elegant housing, travel to Venice has to be on any serious European tour. The Canal Grande acts as the city’s main highway, carving a giant ‘S’ through the city. If followed from end to end, a tourist can see the city’s history up-close and personal. Hire a noble gondolier on this journey of sightseeing, or take a more frequent vaporetti (water taxi) to get from restaurant to restaurant and so forth.
