How acqua alta affects Venice tourism

In Venice, the busy season for tourists is long - stretching out from Easter until ahead of schedule October, however some would contend that Venice never truly has a low season any longer for tourism.

Venice has a moderately calm climate, with temperatures once in a while dropping beneath freezing during the day, or transcending 35°C.

July and August are the hottest months with normal highest day by day temperatures of 27° Celsius, and the tourists swarming around Piazza San Marco. Normal day by day least temperatures are 19°C in July and August. Mugginess can be uncomfortable and the blend of high temperatures and high moistness can be abusive, particularly in extremely swarmed streets.

April to June and September to October are all much pleasanter months for weather with normal every day greatest temperatures extending from 17°C in April to 25°C in June.

Weather in September is pleasant; normal day by day highs around 75°F/24°C, and nights around 65°F/18°C.

Winters are generally cool and regularly rainy. Snow is rare, yet conceivable, generally December through March. During the winter months haze is also conceivable, particularly in the morning.


Incredibly high water level happens anytime of the year, but is more pronounced in winter. It is motioned by the sounding of common guard sirens when the level surpasses +110cm above sea level. To better adapt to the various overflowed person on foot streets, the city's legislature has built up a plan to empower people to move dryly about many areas of the city, by setting up temporary stages (passarelle) amidst real passerby walkways which are most subject to flooding, and linking them to many of the public transportation boat stops.

These stages make it conceivable to stroll without getting wet; however the walkways are tight, simply permitting single line in every direction.The flooding is for the most part linked to the lunar tidal level, in two about twelve hour cycles for every day (6 hours rising, 6 hours falling), implying that notwithstanding when flooding happens, it once in a while moderates or blocks foot traffic for more than a couple of hours only before the waters retreat again underneath walkway level. Most areas of the tidal pond city are over +100cm above ocean level, however some lower areas, for example, Saint Mark's Square, start flooding at levels of +80cm above sea level.

The best time to go relies on upon your hobbies. There are important events consistently, from
  • Carnevale in the 10 days finishing on Shrove Tuesday,
  • Patron saint's Festa di San Marco on 25 April
  • Voga Longa (a noteworthy paddling marathon) on the Sunday after the Ascension
  • Art Biennal from June through November
  • Festa del Redentore the third weekend in July

  • Regata Storica on the first Sunday in September
  • Venice marathon on the last Sunday in October

There is a vast pick of art presentations consistently, which change every once in a while, other than various world class lasting exhibition hall accumulations open year round.

In the off peak season periods between the Epiphany, January 6, and the start of Carnival (February-March), and around the August 15th Ferragosto holiday, various restaurants and hotels will frequently close for brief times of vacation and maintenance, however a large portion of the museums and other tourist destinations remain available to the public.
