What’s the weather like in Venetian Riviera in January?
January is the coldest time of the year in Italy, but winter is the best time to go if you’re looking to avoid the crowds. The Venetian Riviera weather in January is cool but it still receives a good deal of sunlight and it’s not as rainy as last month.
The Venetian Riviera is in northern Italy and runs along the coast from Venice. It’s also near the Venetian Lagoon, which is a famous location in Italy for its marshes and variety of small islands. The climate is chilly throughout the month, though its position on the coast helps to guarantee slightly warmer weather than parts of Northern Europe. Although temperatures are very low, it’s unusual for them to drop below freezing.
The Adriatic coast offers impressive sea views throughout the year but it’s too cold for swimming in January with an average water temperature of just 12°C. The daily average is just 8°C that drops to 0°C overnight. Overcast skies and cloud cover is expected across winter, but there’s still a fair amount of daily sunshine with up to nine hours of sunlight per day. The estimated monthly rainfall is around 23mm, which means there’s a good chance you won’t see any rain during your stay. The humidity is 72% and winds don’t travel much faster than 6mph.
