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.
