Venice isn’t just a paradise for art and history lovers. Imagine a city without cars, with little smog with an ever-changing and breathtaking panorama. It seems impossible to find a place like this one, but Venice is just this. An out of this world oasis suspended in time.
With this in mind, it doesn’t take much to view Venice a paradise for those who love to walk and run in beauty. Of course there are some contradictions, like the numerous bridges that connect the “islands” of the city as well as the dense pedestrian “traffic.” We’ve already gone over where to go jogging in Venice to avoid these inconveniences. However there is an event that is the emblem of the beauty of Venice and jogging: The Venice Marathon.
Every year in October (this year the 23rd) the Venice Marathon runs from the magnificent Riviera del Brenta- Stra- up until the Giardini in Castello. This run isn’t only one of the most important running manifestations in Europe, it is also simply an event for athletes and professionals. The Venice Marathon is an amazing event to witness even if you don’t officially participate in the race.
On this October day, the city stops to watch the runners run through the city, entering across the bridge of Liberty and Santa Marta running along the Giudecca canal before reaching San Marco. It is truly one of the best ways to comprehend the uniqueness of this century old city.
Don’t miss out on your chance to participate- even as a spectator- this fall manifestation that brings thousands of spectators every year. Entertainment guaranteed.
