When to Visit Venice
Avoid the summer, as the city will be overrun and the heat is often oppressive. The ideal times for a visit are late spring (May-June) and fall (September-October). Venice can also be enjoyed in winter, when swirling mist and gauze rain make it extremely romantic in a melancholy sort of way. It is seldom too cold; the light is soft; and, except for the Carnival period, the crowds are gone.
