It takes 243.025 Earth days for Venus to complete one rotation, which is more than it takes it for one rotation around the Sun. That means if you look from that perspective one sidereal day on Venus is longer than its year. On the other hand for Sun to return to the same spot on the sky which is one solar year it takes Venus 116.75 Earth days. That is a little more than half of its year which is 224.7 Earth days. In both cases one day on Venus is pretty long. Venus also rotates clockwise so the sun rises on the west and sets on the east.
