Overview

Italy by Run is a sustainable active tourism project aiming to offer exciting running experiences in the major Italian art cities without undermining their fragile context given to artistic, historical and environmental factors. The private tours are designed for individuals and 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, Florence, Verona and Milan away from the mass tourism proposal. We will show you the everyday life of our beatiful art cities and give you useful practical information to live your stay like a local. All this in a fun and healthy way! Our tour leaders are first of all passionate runners - we all train to run competitions Senior/Master - all locals, great experts of the destinations and their everyday city life.

I was so pleased to see this sightseeing tour available - whilst it was a little pricy (but there again Venice is expensive anyhow) it was well worth the fee. If this type of tour isn't available in other major tourist cities, it certainly should...More

Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
