>General Running>Running in Venice
So I am Venice for the next 2 days and need to get in a 13 mile run.
Anyone on here from Venice? I tried mapping a run and just to get about 5 miles I think I was on 200 different streets and crossing about 50 bridges!

Maybe you can take the boat to Lido di Venezia...You're on the northern side of a very long island then, and you might run south to Alberoni.
(I'm not from Italy, but we were in Venice a few times.)

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Having experienced the water in Venice, I disagree.
I was hoping this thread would be about Venice CA.
Venice is not good for running. If you can find your way onto the causeway to the mainland you could get a good out-and-back.

I think I will try the causeway tomorrow. I did manage to find the bus terminal today so I assume it runs north from there.
That will be good!
I see just now the post, I'm italian, I'm curios about your course, have you found a way?I suggest to found a long road and run along this to cover the target of 13 miles.
