Length about 4,5 km (round-trip), the speed is up to you. From the Ca’ Nigra Lagoon Resort jog in direction of the Papadopoli Park. After a few meters you have the Rio Nuovo right in front of you. At this point turn right and jog along the Rio until you come to an iron bridge. Here you turn right, then immediately left and cross the first bridge you come across, continue along the entire fondamenta and at the end turn right and cross two bridges (the second brings you to the opposite side of the channel). You have just passed near the Campo dei Carmini and the relative Church.
Continue straight on in the direction of San Basilio, crossing first a fondamenta and then a small campo (Campo di San Basegio). Along the fondamenta you will see the small Chiesa di San Sebastiano dating to 1506 on the other side of the Channel (namely the Rio di San Sebastiano).

Now you have arrived at San Basilio in front of the Giudecca Channel. At this point turn left and follow the channel to the end. The view from here is really very beautiful and you can admire the whole Isle of the Giudecca, the Redeemer Church (Chiesa del Redentore) and the Spinster’s Church (Chiesa delle Zitelle), attributed to Palladio.

Continuing along the bank you will come to the boot stop of the Zattere near the Church of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary (Santa Maria della Visitazione built in 1494 by the Gesuate Brothers) and a little further on to the salt storehouses; continue till you reach the Punta della Dogana which has shortly been restored and is now used as a museum.

From here you can enjoy a breathtaking view, the most beautiful of the whole city! In front you have the Isle of Saint George with its Church, on the left Piazza San Marco with its pillars, the entire Riva degli Schiavoni and the Sansoviniana library. More to your left begins the Canal Grande and behind you is the majestic Church of the Virgin Mary of Good Health (Chiesa della Salute).

Arrived here you “lap” Punta della Dogana, pass in front of the Chiesa della Salute and cross the small little bridge beside it. Follow the street and get to the bank facing the Channel of the Giudecca. From here you take the same way as before to return to the point of departure.
