What is the weather like in Venice right now?

by baileyandyogi

Hi guys.. our trip is just a few days away! getting very excited and have printed all the helpful posts you have posted!

We are travelling light as recommended & im wondering if a thin jumper, jeans & a mac is too warm for through the day in Oct/Nov?

We will probably be in Venice all day, returning to the Lido on an evening... thanks :)

You need to check the forecast just before travelling to get an updated idea. Weather just now is improving with the low depression moving eastwards and cloud cover clearing. So tomorrow looks sunny. But check the forecast and take whatever clothes are needed. It begins to turn colder and especially in evening you should be prepared for temperature falling below 50 degree F. (say 10 C) The BORA wind does sometimes affect this northern Adriatic region and brings strong winds but not so much a problem in Venice.

Re: What is the weather like in Venice right now?


added to the above advice: it also depends on what weather you are used to yourself. When in doubt, bring something fleecy, so that you can layer.

We were in Venice last year during mid November and it was really cold, I was even wearing gloves, but you never know, the best is to check the weather forecast, weather is all crazy everywhere nowadays, and take umbrella, it rained a lot!.

The weather is quite cold now! Especially during the nights. I suggest you to wear a great coat.

And I've read that flooding can occur as early it end of Oct or Nov? We were just going to bring our Crocs instead of heavy golashes..

If you haven't left already, another site is Go to either "site search" at the top right or "international sites" at bottom and type in Venice, Italy. I usually check all weather sites to get a consensus; although my sister says they lie, you can get a fairly good general idea & it's always worked for me. Looks like mid-40s to mid-60s, although 60% chance of heavy rain Sun-Min-Tues. Sorry! To check tides go to to the English version, home, tide forecast which gives 3 days info. They also explain the relationship between rain & wind re acqua alta.

It is Friday November 5..
I am looking out my window at foggy skies. Saturday will be very foggy, visibility 50 meters.
We have had major flooding in the Veneto... Major..
The temperature is not so cold, but the humidity sometimes makes it worse.
I think it is quite similar to the bay area of California.
You can buy an umbrella at all the souvenir shops and markets, Don't bring one.
Have fun

Travel Tips for Venice

First Look at Venice along the wide Giudecca Canal

by csordila

From the huge car parking buildings on Tronchetto or Piazzale Roma you can reach Piazza San Marco taking the vaporetto Nr. 2 express line, which runs through the wide Giudecca Canal, water access to Venice for the large cruise ships, to San Zaccaria on Riva degli Schiavoni.
But you do not need to wait for San Marco only. On the way you will have a wonderful view of both side of the canal, Dorsoduro and Giudecca.

The most intriguing waterfront promenade is the Zattere lined by a series of notable buildings and monuments, running the entire southern shore of Dorsoduro. The marvellous Casa Dei Tre Oci by the painter and architect Mario De Maria, a nice re-interpretation, midway between Gothic Revival and Art Nouveau styles, of the Venetian gothic palace. It stands on the island of Giudecca. Along the years it was home, apart from De Maria and his family, for architect Renzo Piano and for Peggy Guggenheim's daughter.

Ristorante Riviera on Dorsoduro side, locatated around the Maritime station at the end of Zattere opposite Mulino Stucky. It is, what used to be a rarity in Venice, a restaurant that offers really good cooking. Pricey, but worth it.

Andrea Palladio's Church of the Redentore, a large, white building with a dome crowned by a statue of the Redeemer is sited on the island Giudecca. From the distance, the temple front facade stands as the front layer, behind which the higher roofs of the nave culminate in the dome and its lantern.
Every year in the past, the doge and senators walked across a specially constructed pontoon bridge from the Zattere to Giudecca to attend Mass.

Mulino Stucky, the former Flourmill, now Hotel Hilton seems to be in a rather remote location, on the far west end of the island, where there is not too much activity in comparison to Venice. Staying there would be a little like going to the Ball, but having to stand outside and watch through a window as the orchestra plays.

After getting off at San Zaccaria and walking along Riva degli Schiavoni, the high-rent strip of hotels facing the lagoon, to San Marco you can admire the most celebrated hotels in Venice. Double rooms cost upwards of €300 (low season) or €700 (high season), but the hotels have a loyal following among guests who can afford luxury. The Danieli is especially popular with wealthy Americans; I once was told by a friend, he saw a dapper guest in a Western suit, Stetson hat, and cowboy boots emerge from the Danieli.

by msmod

Visit Piazza San Marcos - you'll feel like you're in the middle of a 1950's Cary Grant movie. Take a picture with the birds and visit the Doge's Palace. Listen to the Orchestras at sunset.... Gondola ride is a must. Water, water, everywhere.... take boats, taxis, water bus, and gondolas everywhere. Eat at Osteria Da Carla 'con cucina' S. Marco 1535 Venezia Tel. 5237855... bene!

The city is built on 117 small...

by ainhoaflies

The city is built on 117 small islands, and is linked to the mainland service town of Mestre by a road and rail causeway. The Grand Canal insinuates itself around the city, emerging at the unforgettable vista of Piazza San Marco, boasting its campanile, Doges' Palace, St Mark's Basilica and elegant pigeon-filled piazza.
The Bridge of Sighs links the palace to the gloomy old prisons, and the bobbing gondolas are overlooked by the stunning Santa Maria della Salute, San Giorgio Maggiore and del Redentore churches.
To appreciate the fine palaces that line the Grand Canal, swallow your 'but I'm not really a tourist' and take a gondola.

The Accademia Bridge leads to a quieter Venice and the Galleria dell'Accademia, with its collection of Venetian masters.
The nearby Peggy Guggenheim Gallery updates your walk through history and art, with its fine collection of early-20th-century works.

Venice, side "street", or back "alley"

by Martin_S.

In Venice the waterways are the streets and take the place of what most land locked cities think of as side streets or alleyways. This "small" canal gives access to many homes and you can see the boats moored at the "car park" infront of the homes. Many of them give direct access to the home from the boat, you step out of the boat into the house....


by diageva

You can see the importance of the Carnival all the year for the lots of fancy dress stores you will find all along Venice.

Lots of religious fancy dresses, mask of all kinds ... all with a great art made and high quality
