Venice and Florence in August - To Go or Not

Jump to last reply

I was supposed to go to Venice, Florence and Rome last year but had to cancel my trip. I rescheduled it for this August on a smaller scale eliminating Rome. My plan is 2 nights in Venice and 5 nights in Florence. Flying non stop into Venice from NY and home non stop from Pisa. Got business class seats using ff on Delta and locked in my Florence hotel using American dollars so the trip hopefully will not break the bank. My original trip was for early May but the newly scheduled trip is for the last week in August. Now I am wondering if I made a mistake traveling to Venice & Florence in August. I am concerned about crowds (and closures) as well as hot and humid weather. I've heard all kinds of reports of Venice being very unpleasant at that time. Normally I do my homework but this was an impulsive decision. I cannot travel in the fall so postponing till then is not an option.

I'd love to hear from others who were in Venice and Florence at this time, and whether the crowds and heat were unbearable or not such a negative to greatly impact one's ability to get around and enjoy the sights. I know weather is not predictable but I want to prepare for the worst case scenario and decide whether to postpone till next spring or just go and enjoy now. There will be all kinds of fees to cancel so that is a factor too.

Maybe I'm over thinking this but it's my first time and I want it to be special.
