Venice Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

The best times to visit this magnificent city are in late spring and early summer. Venice is busiest in June and during September and October. Summer in Venice gets hot and muggy. There are fewer crowds mid-March through May, another good time to vacation. Wintertime transforms Venice into a pristine wonderland, occasionally cloaking the city in fog or snow.

Legend has it that a betrothed fisherman, who managed to escape the lure of a siren, was rewarded with a foam-like headdress that became his lovely bride’s wedding veil. Eventually, Venetian lace makers recreated this legendary veil with lace, and an industry was born.

Venice was one of the greatest engineering feats in the world. To achieve the impression of a floating city, builders dug wood pilings deep into the ocean floor amid 118 submerged islands.
