The Climate of Venice is tempered by the sea and the Lagune, though
cold N.E. winds and thick foga are not uncommon in winter. The mean
temperature of the year is 56.5° Fahr.; that of January, the coldest month,
32.6°; of February 39.1°; March 46.2°; April 66.7°; May 66.7°; June 72.1°,
July 76.4°; August74.6°; September 65.5°; October 58.8°; November 46.5°;
December 39°. The air is very humid, and often favourable to catarrhal
affections, but rheumatism is prevalent. Its perfect immunity from dust is
one of the chief advantages of Venice, and nervous patients will find an¬
other in its noiseless highways. The water-works supply drinking-water
from the district of Castelfranco (p. 279). Invalida who intend wintering
in Venice should choose rooms with a southern aspect. The warmest parts
of the town are the Riva degli Schiavoni and the Fondamenta delle Zattere.
