We will start running in Saint Mark’s square in the early morning, when it’s still empty and quiet. The golden Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Campanile will be the background of your run. We will catch our breath while taking a picture in front of the Bridge of the Sighs and then we will speed along the waterfront of Riva degli Schiavoni, along Saint Mark’s basin.
We will reach the district of Castello where we will see the entrance of the Arsenale, where the Venetians built the ships for their skillful merchants and their powerful fleet. We will run past the two gigantic stone lions who guard the Arsenale and we will proceed to the residential district of Cannaregio. We will step up and down the bridges and swerve through the winding calles.
We will reach the Jewish Getto with its five synagogues and finally cross the Grand Canal. It is the largest and deeper canal in Venice and it’s water will be completely calm early in the morning. This is the perfect scenery for a last picture while you run to earn your deserved breakfast.
