Walkers stay together as a group and all ages and levels of fitness are welcomed and encouraged to join. "Passing dozens of landmarks, we will be joined by community members, both individuals and in groups, as we pass through the city's most diverse neighborhoods." Not convinced?

Walk Like A Venetian: One weekend a year "artists open their studios, architects open their homes, and art lovers gather at one of the area’s largest silent art auctions, all to raise money to provide free, quality health care for people in need." Venice Art Walk grew from a commitment to the people of Venice whose residents built a of "art, ideas, and idiosyncrasies that continue to flourish today." Schedule here.
