Winter in Venice

Most visitors usually flock to Venice during the warm and sunny summer months, and I don’t question their logic. You don’t have to convince me that warm weather and sunny skies are a good thing. But if you’re only visiting Venice in the summer, you’re missing out on a magical experience.

During winter a dense fog descends on the city, making the narrow alleys and winding canals eery and mysterious. The usually crowded streets are practically empty and the unique atmosphere of this hauntingly beautiful city is all yours to explore!

If you’re looking for more than just foggy solitude, late February would be a good time to visit – that’s when Venice celebrates Carnival, and the historic streets turn into a massive outdoor party with people dressed in cloaks and Venetian masks – sort of like Eyes Wide Shut but outdoors.
