LOVED IT. Have been both in mid-August and late March.
I was in Venice in late June. I loved the city itself, although it is a little like WDW with the whole tourism thing. Such fabulous attractions – be sure to take a gondola ride – and things to see.

West Of The Alleghanies
ABSOLUTELYLOVED IT !!
(and cant wait to go back…)
My tour guide/professor, who has been to Venice 20+ times, says it is always best to visit Venice in the spring or fall. Summer has problems of “sewage odors” due to the lowered sea levels, and winter is when most natives go on vacation, so much is closed down…
I was there March 17-30, 2005. The weather was perfect. Warmer than i thot it’d be, tho it does drop quite a bit at night (esp. when traveling on the vaporettos on the canal)
Mid-June. nice weather. I think early june would have been even nicer.
Loved it in October :)
I loved it in March. Sure it was cold but it was lovely.
And honestly I’d love it even if it got stinky and crowded because I know it for the jewel that it is.
I loved it so much, its my passion.
I was there in late August and it was great. Not hot not cold, it was fine. and it wasnt so crowded.
LOVED IT! I visited in December 2005 with my sister. We were there for 5 days. The weather was cold and crisp but Venice was practically deserted of tourists, ideal! It’s such a small place that we found 5 days just enough to see all the main sites and find a few hidden jewels.
I’m returning there later this month with my boyfriend who has never been. He’s in for a treat!
(p/s apparently November is the worst time to visit as the city is more prone to flooding at this time of the year)
Loved it, been twice, in May both times I think. =)
Loved it … visited in August. Quite a lot of people there, but not too crowded.
Went in the beginning of April last year- beautiful place- just the rainy weather was horrible. My travel companion’s umbrella actually broke in St. Mark’s Piazza! And I don’t think my feet have ever been that cold in my life!
(P.S. I stayed in Rome first- before Venice- where the weather was beeeauuutiful)
I went in the beginning of October. It was fabulous. Most of the tourists were gone, the weather was warm enough and dry.
I would avoid November — the city tends to flood as the water level rises. There are platforms to walk on, but it’s much more enjoyable without the floods.
OH and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. It is one of my top 3 cities in Europe that I love.
Loved it. Went in mid-June, only rained once while I was there and it wasn’t a lot of rain. It was pretty hot. I don’t remember it being stinky, but it was definitely crowded with tourists and there were a ton of (nasty) pigeons. I think the pigeons are there year-round though…
I loved it over and above many, many other places. October – flooded but fun.
City of Westminster
I went during Easter and really loved it but I think it’d have been even nicer in the summer or early autumn. If I could choose I’d probably go in early September because there wouldn’t be as many tourists.
