When I went to Venice, it was after the tail end of my stay in France. It feels like forever ago. We went in November, which was off-tourist season, and which I would highly recommend. What was not so great, however, was the severe flooding. It even made international news! Luckily, it had subsided by the time that we arrived, and every time we asked the locals about it, we were met with a shrug and an incredibly nonchalant "ehhhh, happens ev'ry year." Although you might not be able to tell from the photos below, here and there you can see some of the platform walkways that had yet to be put away.
