Venice is located in North–East Italy and so the climate varies throughout the year.
During the winter, temperatures can drop below freezing, while in the summer, temperatures can soar to a dizzying 35 C / 96 F.
The hottest month is August and the coldest is January.
Because of the water that makes Venice so unique, the cooler temperatures feel colder and the warmer temperatures, hotter.
During the fall and winter months Venice can suffer from flooding, which in November seems to occur almost on a daily basis. The flooding in Venice is directly related to tides in the Venetian lagoon.
Therefore, high water "acqua alta", normally only lasts a few hours a day.
Acqua Alta is a phenomenon that regularly occurs in the city of Venice, especially during the autumn and spring high tides. It involves the flooding of the most low lying areas of Venice, or in more severe cases, up to 96% of the city streets.
