The climate in Venice is moderately continental, with fairly cold, damp winters and warm, muggy summers.
It can rain at any time of year, although the highest rainfall is in the autumn and spring.
In the winter, St. Mark’s Square can flood, as it is the lowest part of town. It is often foggy and temperatures can occasionally dip below -5 C.
Summer is hot and sunny, especially between June and August, with sea breezes that cool the hot, humid air. During the hottest periods temperatures can rise over 35C, but the shady, narrow streets offer respite from the heat.
