Best time to visit Venice

Venice

Best time of year to visit Venice

La Serenissima is attractive during any season. However, the most crowded period in the City on the Water is February and March during the famous Carnevale Venezia. Thus, the best time to visit Venice is in autumn and spring when the temperature is moderate and the days are sunny. September is an excellent time to hire a gondola for a ride, see Regata Storica race, and meet the celebrities during Venice Film Festival. May and June is also a great period to visit due to the Biennale art fair and the Vogalonga boat race.
