Spritz and cicchetti

Your experience of Venice is incomplete without trying the traditional Venetian cocktail with savory snacks at a garden café. And what better place than the heart of Venice? Sip an Italian aperitif made of Prosecco, Aperol, and sparking water between bites of delicious Cicchetti a stone's throw away from St. Mark's Square, at Illy Caffe. Here long glass panes allow ample sunlight in and the neoclassical greenhouse aesthetic puts you in a scene artists of yesteryore would love to paint. Soak in the unobstructed views of the Royal Garden and the Venetian hubbub of the San Marco Basin. Not just the view but the National Snack of Venice will also fill your heart with much wonder, the variety of toppings these bread bites can offer is truly mind-boggling and symbolic of the city’s creative soul.
