What if you saw thousands of people running up and down the bridges all over Venice? Don’t worry, it’s not an hallucination! It’s “Su e Zo per i Ponti”, an t
raditional race taking place each year and involving young people, adults, families, school parties and sport groups in an amazing walk through the Venice calli (alleys).
This year the event takes place on Sunday 10th of April at 10 am, starting from Piazza San Marco (corner of Palazzo Ducale)…13 km of track, crossing 53 bridges, that circles all the island to arrive again in Piazza San Marco.
At 12.30 don’t miss the Folk groups parade in Piazza San Marco that will entertain the runners and the visitors with artistic and musical exhibitions.
This peculiar walk is a funny way to discover Venice and its soul and to have great time celebrating an important festival!
How to get to Piazza San Marco from the Hotel Sant’Elena:
By foot: about 25 minutes along Rive dei Sette Martiri
By vaporetto boat: take the n° 1 to Piazzale Roma and you’ll reach San Marco in two stops
