In Venice is frequent a phenomenon known as Acqua Alta that causes the flooding of certain low areas of the city. This usually happens during the spring and autumn, and often can interfere with the full enjoyment of your tour of the city.
Although the most pleasant weather is during the period from May to September, the best time to visit Venice is between the end of August and the end of September. The weather during these dates is really perfect to enjoy all the activities and even visit some nearby beaches. Winter is the least favorable time to visit this city, as temperatures drop considerably, the days are usually quite short and there are not many activities to do.
