People of Venice loves pets. For this reason the dogs are well liked everywhere. It is not uncommon, in fact, to cross in a bar or in some shop people with its dog on a leash. Or even see the dogs in the boat with their own masters.

Where to go with your dog

In Venice dogs can not run free, but must be kept on a leash and with a lot of muzzle, especially to get on the vaporetto or any public vehicle. Small and medium size dogs do not pay the ticket.

In the city there are few green areas and there are no meadows so always take the bags with you to collect the dirt that leaves your dog.

The only large enough green area can be found in the Eastern part of the city: SANT’ELENA.

In the sestiere of Cannaregio you can find two other small green spaces that are: the park of Ca ‘ Savorgnan and the park Groggia in Sant’Alvise. Attention: In all these areas dogs must be kept on a leash.

The area instead where dogs can run free and happy is:

BAU BEACH The dog beach of the Lido di Venezia to Pachuka in San Nicolò, which is located in the most northerly part of the island, offers the possibility to choose the specific menu for your four-legged friend. It also has a space on the seashore dedicated specifically to dogs, not adjacent to the bathhouse of the same room, but equipped with umbrellas, showers, bowls for drinking and eating destined to Fido.
