The finish is in the historic centre of Venice, on the embankment named Riva Sette Martiri, in a scenic position facing the lagoon. The first part of the route, along the Riviera del Brenta, lays in an environment rich with history, culture and beatiful landscapes, characterized by the numerous Venetian villas facing on the waters of the river. The marathon goes through the centre of Marghera and Mestre, then runs for more than 2 kilometers inside San Giuliano’s Park and gets to Venice via the Liberty Bridge (a flat and straight bridge long just a little less than 4 kilometers). The race proceeds in Venice's renovated port area and reaches the city centre for the last kilometers, which are simply unique and unforgettable. Marathoners run next to the Giudecca Canal to Punta della Dogana, where they cross the Grand Canal on a pontoon bridge, especially built for the race.
