We have spent all of January in Venice on two occasions.

First time, we were seeing about 5 degrees C maximum during the days.

Second time it was a lot warmer – I recollect that it reached as much as 8 deg C on several occasions.

Both times we saw a light dusting of snow, and ice lay on the ground for several days without melting. Acqua alta can be a hassle in the winter months.

As others have said, you never know what you're going to get with weather - obviously. I travel a lot off peak (and I'm from the north), and I have to say I have never been as cold on a trip as I was in Florence in February. Rome, afterwards, was no picnic either. 2008. It was still a wonderful trip, and we were ready for it, but ouch. Ouch!
