Venice's best travel months (also its busiest and most expensive) are April, May, June, September, and October. Summer in Venice is more temperate (the high 70s and 80s) than in Italy's scorching inland cities. Most Venetian hotels come with air-conditioning — important in the summer — but it's usually available only from May (at the earliest) through September. Spring and fall can be cool, and many hotels — thanks to a national interest in not wasting energy — are not allowed to turn on their heat until winter.

Venice has two main weather patterns: wind from the southeast (the Balkans) brings cold and dry weather, while the sirocco wind from the south (North Africa) brings warm and wet weather, pushing more water into the lagoon and causing flooding (acqua alta). This shouldn't greatly affect your sightseeing plans. Tabacchi (tobacco shops) and some souvenir shops sell boots to keep your feet dry. Elevated wooden walkways are sometimes set up in the busier, more flooded squares to keep you above the water. And it's worth a trip to St. Mark's Square to see waiters in fancy tuxes and rubber boots.

So, Venice doesn’t know a true low season. The Serenissima is so unique and so famous that the desire to see it with one’s own eyes knows no seasonal limit. Each time of the year has its pros and cons, as well as different activities and events to enjoy up and down the canals.

Although Venice Italy is a beautiful city, you should avoid going there in the summer because it is overly crowded and it can be pretty hot. April, May, September and October are the best months to visit the city because it is when it’s not rainy so there’s a lot of chance to roam around. Half of May is the best time for sightseeing because it is comfortably warm. You can check out this article for the other best options to visit and why.

Venice is often referred to as the "City of Canals" and is famous for its intricate network of canals and waterways that can be explored by gondola. The canals are lined with beautiful Renaissance and Gothic architecture, making them a popular attraction for visitors. Venice is renowned for its delicious seafood dishes and traditional Venetian cuisine. Visitors can enjoy delicious local specialties such as risotto alla vongole (clam risotto), baccalà mantecato (creamed salt cod), and fegato alla veneziana (Venetian-style calf's liver) along with famous wines like Prosecco and Soave.

The best time to travel to Venice, Italy depends on your personal preferences and what you want to experience during your visit. Here are a few things to consider when planning your trip:

High Season (April to October): This is the peak tourist season in Venice, and the weather is generally warm and pleasant. The city is also home to many festivals and events during this time, such as the Venice Film Festival, the Venice Biennale, and the Redentore Festival. However, it can also be very crowded, and hotel prices tend to be higher.

Shoulder Season (March and November) - This is a less crowded time to visit Venice, and the weather is still mild and pleasant. The city is also home to many festivals and events during this time, such as the Carnival of Venice. Hotel prices tend to be lower than during the high season.

Low Season (December to February) - This is the off-season in Venice, and the weather is generally cold and damp. The city is less crowded, and hotel prices are lower, but many shops, restaurants, and attractions may be closed.

It's worth noting that Venice is a city that can be visited all year round, but the best time to visit is often considered in the spring and fall. The city can also be very beautiful in the winter, with fewer tourists and a more peaceful atmosphere.
