The “Venice Night Trail” is a run by night that takes place through the historic center of Venice. In 2020 it reached its 5th edition. 16 km between the streets and squares, up and down 51 bridges between the mystery and charm of Venice by night.
The starting line is set in San Basilio. The run continues through Santa Marta to Piazzale Roma, crossing the Constitution bridge to reach the railway station. Entering the Ghetto and passing the church of the Madonna dell’Orto, the run reaches the Civil Hospital and the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. The runners continue in the Castello district, first through the Arsenale, then in Sant’Elena along the sports field. Passing the Biennale Gardens they return to Piazza San Marco along the whole shore that runs alongside the basin. Passing Piazza San Marco “the most beautiful drawing room in Europe”, after Calle Larga XXII Marzo and the church of Santa Maria del Giglio the runners reach Campo Santo Stefano. Then passing the Accademia bridge, the Peggy Guggenheim museum, the church of Santa Maria della Salute, the Punta della Dogana and the whole long bank of the Giudecca canal they reach the finish line again in San Basilio.
Best wishes for fun to all participants, athletes and viewers.
