Raleigh, USA to Venice is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Raleigh to Venice due to the time zone difference. In March in Venice, expect temperatures between 58°F during the day and 41°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Mantua.
