Venice in the rain

We are not really into museums. Any suggestions.

Going Tuesday and the wife's birthday is on Wednesday but the weather looks awful with lots of rain or should I not trust the forecast. Typical. We went Barcelona a couple of months ago and rained non stop too.

Typically it rains hard and not for long... Well the last few blocks of rain have been like that. Also the temperatures dropped drastically on Friday when we had the last lot. They went up again though!!! Maybe head to a church/musuem or bar and wait it out.....

Venice = water. My clearest memories are of a long time ago, rain falling and cold, being pursued by a water taxi bow wave come slopping down the footpath behind me. It’s Venice. Being in, um, a watercolour.

That's helpful. Thank you. The temperatures seem fine this week but Wednesday and Thursday, it looks like it will rain for long periods. Hopefully they are wrong!

Venice is wonderful in the rain. Not the pouring kind but just a sprinkling, foggy day is a treat. You can always hang in a bar/cafe if you are not into museums. Watch your umbrella in narrow calli so you do not poke anyone’s eyes out ;)
