Venice is a city that can be enjoyed at all times of the year, although summer tends to be a busy time to visit. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to travel to Venice, as the city is less crowded and the temperatures are pleasant. The best time to visit Paris is during the famous Paris spring between April and June, when the days are sunny but not too hot. The autumn and winter months are another good time to visit when there are smaller crowds.
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express runs departures between Venice and Paris from March to November.
