Venus orbits the sun in approximately 225 Earth days. (224.70069 days)

Strange as it may seem, Venus rotates so slowly that a "day" on Venus is longer than its year. It takes Venus about 243 Earth days to spin once on its axis. The slow rotation is also in a "retrograde" (clockwise) direction, from east to west.
