City Life and Sport

Some sport activities related to the city of Venice have become greatly successful events, like the “Vogalonga”: the most important Venetian rowing event in which many Italian and foreign rowers participate. The race on the traditional boat crafts has become the symbol of a burning issue that is strongly felt in the city of Venice: the protection from wave action and the protection of the fragility of the Lagoon.

In relation to traditional water sports, many sport associations organise rowing or sailing classes in different areas of the city, from Cannaregio to Giudecca and Mestre.

For several years now, the Rowing Camp of the island of S. Erasmo provides rowing classes and interesting workshops for children and teenagers, to teach them about the extraordinary and unique natural environment of the Lagoon.

The old but glorious Stadio Penzo is the historical site where the “arancioneroverde” football team has its home, providing opportunities for entertainment and lively debates that animate Venetian city life.

The Palasport Taliercio in Mestre, on the other hand, is linked to the Reyer basketball team, and is a multifunctional structure able to host not only sport events but also shows and conventions.

Outdoor sport enthusiasts, instead, just need to put on a pair of sneakers and run down streets, bridges, and squares. You will often see people engaged in this activity in and around the city: "panting" Venetians and foreigners who do not want to miss the opportunity to jog in a unique environment, motivating them to feel healthy in both body and spirit.

The "Su e Zo per i ponti" and the Venice Marathon are the two best-known international Venetian events. They testify to the potential of Venice in sports, becoming actual "symbol events" of a city that counts on getting around by foot... possibly with your nose up in the air and your eyes ready to be surprised by unexpected beauty.
