No matter if your visiting Venice on holiday, social trip, work outing or just resting over for one night, a new city is a killer of motivation when it comes to staying fit! Unlike most cities, we offer up various workout options, perfect for staying fit and healthy.
Walking in Venice
Venice, as you will probably know, is made up of hundreds of small islands connected via bridges. This unique layout naturally encourages walking, making traditional car rides the least popular means of travel. Walking in Venice will make most people feel like they have been participating in a 12-hour gym workout by the time they head to bed or questioning whether their iPhone step metre has been mistakenly strapped to a rogue godula.
Running in Venice
Contrary to popular belief, Venice does have some great jogging spots for avid joggers to enjoy and take advantage of, you just have to know where to look! Some of the best places to jog are along the water. However, this choice may run you into some angry tourists and locals! The trick is if you pick the right spot at just the right time and you'll be in store for some breathtaking views, especially on the outskirts of town. If you are interested in finding out more, get in touch with the team at Corte Realdi and we will be happy to map out some of the best jogging routes possible.
Gyms in Venice
If you are looking to workout in Venice, there are large quantities of gyms that are open to tourists looking to get their sweat on! If you are interested in finding out more information regarding what gyms to visit, please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of the Corte Realdi team members, who will be more than happy to put you in touch with just the right people.
Swimming in Venice
The truth is Venice canals are not open for refreshing summer dips! Although it can look tempting to some, the canals lining the streets are not open to the public, landing rule breakers with fines up to 500 Euros if caught swimming in them. If you are looking to enjoy a splash during your trip to Venice, it is advised traveling further afield of the lagoon. Places such as the Lido di Venezia, Jesolo, and Bibione can perfectly accommodate your oceanic desires.
