Rain-soaked tourists were barred from St Mark's Square in Venice where local authorities said the "acqua alta" (high water) peaked at 156cm, leaving nearly three-quarters of the Italian city under water.
Venice is now experiencing the worst flooding it's seen in a decade, but one restaurant refuses to let the knee-high water impact business.
Two young people died south of Rome when a tree hit their vehicle while another was killed when high winds toppled slender pine trees in the nearby town of Terracina.
The water level has only reached above 150 centimeters five times since records began, most famously in 1966, when it hit 194 centimeters and devastated the historic city center. The high tide along the final stretch of the race meant participants had to jog through ankle-deep water to complete the course.
The high water level halted vaporetto services.

Monday's high tides were caused by a low-pressure weather system over northern Italy that brought strong winds from south to north, pushing water into Venice.
Meteorologists say weather conditions are expected to subside over the next few days but more rain is set to pummel Venice and other areas. Shopkeepers used buckets to remove water from their premises.
As noted in an earlier article, Italy now experiences major flooding every four years or so, which means people have started taking necessary precautions to deal with the water ahead of time.
Italy's famous century-old structures have also bore the brunt of the storm, and several landmarks have been left completely destroyed.
Much of Italy is under alert for flooding from heavy rains, a problem exacerbated by a lack of maintenance of river beds.
In the province of Frosinone, south of Rome, two people died after a tree fell on their auto, while in the southern region of Calabria, a man was reported missing.
