City Breaks to Venice

This wonderful city of canals possesses riches beyond compare and the pleasure of strolling in a city totally free of traffic is one of Venice’s greatest charms. In the narrow streets, which wind beside the canals and over the little arched bridges there is a wide variety of enticing shops from elegant boutiques to busy street markets. With city breaks to Venice from Dublin you can wander off the tourist trail to discover squares, bars and markets frequented only by the Venetians themselves.

Climate

Venice experiences very high humidity, with hot weather in July and August, the height of summer. Temperatures in summer usually range between 86°F to 91°F (30°C to 33°C), dropping in winter to between 32°F and 37°F (0°C to 3°C).

Due to its location on the Adriatic coast, Venice often experiences thunderstorms and rain showers which, particularly in spring and autumn, tend to cause flooding. Known as the 'acqua alta,' it is best to pack waterproof shoes or boots to avoid a soaking.

April to October is usually the busiest time in Venice, though it is a popular destination all year round. Christmas, Easter, Carnival (in February) and the Venice International Film Festival (in August) are also busy periods, and winter is perhaps the best time to travel to Venice to avoid crowds and find better rates on accommodation.

Language

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is understood in the larger cities but not in the more remote parts of the country.

Money

The Euro (EUR) is the official currency, which is divided into 100 cents. ATMs are widespread.
