The equatorial circumference of Venus is about 38,025 km or 23,627 miles.

This is only slightly smaller than Earth (40,075 km).

Often a planet's circumference around the equator is different from the pole-to-pole circumference, since the spinning of the planet on its axis flattens the planet out somewhat with a bulge at the equator. Venus rotates very slowly though, so its polar circumference is pretty much the same as the equatorial circumference.
