January and February
It used to be the case when the canals would freeze over but nowadays although this seems to be a thing of the past, the quantity of water and the freezing winds means that Venice feels cold and damper than the Italian mainland.
January : degrees centigrade maximum = 6 minimum = -1 monthly rainfall = 58mm
February : degrees centigrade maximum = 8 minimum = 1 monthly rainfall = 54mm

March and April
Spring in Venice can bring temperatures of around 20C. However, beware as these months can be rainy and the low-lying areas of the city can become flooded.
March : degrees centigrade maximum = 12 minimum = 4 monthly rainfall = 57mm
April : degrees centigrade maximum = 16 minimum = 8 monthly rainfall = 64mm

May and June
