Come to Venice in winter - and you will be knee-deep in water at the time of the famous Acqua Alta!
How to see the famous Acqua Alta flooding in Venice
There are floods in Venice in winter (from late September to January), the Italians call them the Acqua Alta. Come to Venice in November-December - and you will see the famous flooding of Venice.

The streets of Venice are hiding under the water for a couple of hours and then the water goes as quickly as it came. Piazza San Marco is the lowest point of Venice, and it is under water faster than anyone, so it is the best place where you can watch the flooding.

Buy a raincoat with a hood and rubber boots - and walk knee-deep in the water in the most beautiful place in the city!
