The Venice Marathon is known for its fast course that runs through the beautiful city. The start is at the Vila Pisani Museum and the first part of the race is run along the Riviera del Brenta. This part of the course is rich in culture and historical buildings. After this you will run through the centre of Marghera and Mestre before reaching the Ponte della Libertà. This bridge is 4 km long and brings you to the historic centre of Venice on the island of San Marco, the most spectacular part of the course along with the bridge over the Grand Canal, which was specially built for this event. After this you will quickly reach the finish line on the Riva Sette Martiri. A certified Bronze Label IAAF Race, which has the reputation of fascinating both runners and supporters!

Buongiorno Venezia! After breakfast, you will have plenty of free time today, and Venice has a lot to offer! The city is spread over several islands and each island has its own charm.
