Packing for Venice
Venice is warm and temperate all year round. Summers peak in July, with an average temperature of 23°C. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are musts and it’s also wise to pack some long-sleeved shirts to keep those arms under wraps and away from the sunshine. The coldest month is January. Expect rain all year round so it’s worth packing a waterproof top or cagoule. With reasonable rates and reliable service, Luggage Mule can ship your luggage anywhere in Venice so that you can enjoy the city worry free.
What to ship home from Venice
There are some great souvenirs to bring home from Venice and a traditional Venetian mask has to top the list. There also many artisanal glassmakers and boutique clothes shops to explore too including the vintage Italian jewelers of Le Gioie di Bortolo and modern Murano glass experts Venini. If you’re planning to bring back gifts, don’t settle for single items – with a generous 30kg allowance, our luggage shipping service allows you to buy multiple purchases and have them delivered right to your door.
