Where to drink coffee, spritz or prosecco

Italy is not only a country of history, culture and art. Italy also has a lot to offer from a gastronomic point of view. But you don't always have to just sit down at the table to enjoy the goodness of a country. You can enjoy a good coffee with cornetto, a juice or a cocktail while standing. In Italy, and also in Venice, it is very common to drink a cocktail or a coffee while standing at the bar. If the barman is free from work, talk to him, and maybe leave a tip of appreciation.

Try a prosecco in a Venetian bar, especially at the end of the day. Venetians love prosecco and drink it with ease, without having to sit down.  Bacari are another place to sip some local alcoholic beverages. Cocktails such as the Spritz and Bellini are another staple of modern Venetian culture. The original Spritz is made with a dry white, campari, select or aperol & soda. The Bellini is made with blended white peach with prosecco added without stirring. Trying one of these cocktails in Venice is a must.
