What’s the weather like in Venice in February?
February is one of the coldest months of the year with bitter cold nights and a high chance of rainfall. Venice weather in February isn’t great for sunbathing or swimming in the sea, but if you’re more interested in sightseeing and exploring this beautiful city then it’s a fantastic time for a quiet holiday.
Venice is on Italy’s northeast coast in the Veneto region. The climate is humid and subtropical, with very cool and wet winters. The city is near the Adriatic Sea, separated only by a long strip of land. You’ll need to pack warm clothes like jumpers, hats, and scarves to help deal with the freezing temperatures. Winds blowing in from the sea are quite common at night, which leads to colder weather in the evenings that don't pick up again until around 12pm.
With an average temperature of 8°C and lows of 1°C, February is a very cool time to visit Venice. There are ten hours of sunshine per day, which has increased by an hour from last month. The sea is very cold and not suitable for swimming with an average high of just 10°C. There are quite a lot of cloudy days in February with an average rainfall of 54mm over nine days. Winds travel at 9mph near the coast and blow in from the northeast.
