Best time of year to visit Venice

edited April 2013 in - Italy
When is the best time of year to visit Venice? I don't necessarily mean the peak tourist season because I would prefer not to be caught in crowds and queues. Is it true that the city gets a bit stinky at certain times of year? Any advice welcome!


  • Hi Kahlan,
    Venice is a very popular travel destination and it can get uncomfortably crowded. From April to October the city is very busy. My advice therefore would be to go in winter when it is less crowded and a bit cheaper. Winter - December to February - is cold but the city will astound you.
  • I would say January - February if you want to see the Carnival or from June to August
