VENICE BY RUN is a sustainable tourism project born in 2015 with the aim of offering exciting experiences in Venice without undermining its fragile context given to artistic, historical and environmental factors.
The running tours are designed for small groups (max 6-10 persons, depending on the tour) to offer a unique visit to the most valuable historical, artistic and cultural places of Venice in a different way from the tourism mass proposal.
We will show you the everyday life of Venetians (yes, despite the high tourists flux there are still many residents in the historical centre) and give you useful practical information to live your stay like a local. All this in a funny and healthy way!
We want to offer to people visiting Venice a sustainable and healthy tourism experience.
We want to organize sightseeing running tours, out of the mass tourism conditions, that allow you to know, live, enjoy Venice without leaving a high impact on it.
Who we are
Our tour leaders are first of all passionate runners – we all train to run competitions Senior/Master – all locals, great experts of Venice and its everyday city life.
We all are involved in sustainable themes in different fields of research and committed to obtain a fair trade-off between tourism and the city of Venice.
