What to Wear in Venice in Spring




Venetian Clothing Style


Neutral and monochrome color palettes are always in vogue – team your black jeans or slacks with a stylish wrap top.

Pack comfortable shoes with good grip to navigate the cobblestones or water over the pathways. Leave behind your favorite white shoes when planning what to wear in Venice in spring – they will get dirty very quickly!

Read our ten step packing guide on choosing the best shoes for travel.




Accessorize with a scarf


Street vendors selling a plethora of gorgeous scarves are a common sight in Venice, which add color and interest to your outfit, and come handy when visiting churches where shoulders are expected to be covered.


Use packing cubes to help you organize and even compress your belongings to maximize your space.




Tran-seasonal style


Venice showcases some of its best weather during late spring and early summer, when the temperatures are comfortably warm but haven’t yet reached the height of oppressive heat.

Make sure you pack a cardigan or long sleeved shirt for the cooler days, along with a raincoat or umbrella to avoid the spring showers.
