If running continuously for 42km without stopping sounds like fun - then the Venice Marathon is for you. Taking place on the 23rd of October, the marathon will feature an all time high of over 8000 runners. Needless to say it's one of the more picturesque marathons in the world, so if you don't fancy running - you can always kick back at a bar and cheer the runners on.
Concert wise. Irish band The Cranberries will be doing a one-off concert on the 28th. Tickets will set you back around €34.
