The undisputed star of this experience is the spritz, a historic cocktail of uncertain origins made with Prosecco, Aperol and a splash of sparkling water or Seltz. Its most bitter version calls for Select or Campari, but everyone has their own secret mix to make it special. 


To give you a true Venetian experience, the aperitif will be accompanied by 'cicchetti', savoury snacks and vegetable chips.


You will find yourself in a truly fascinating building, located in the heart of the city, behind St Mark's Square. The illy café is a former greenhouse and thanks to its structure it enjoys natural light at all hours of the day, as well as a colourful sunset that reflects directly on St Mark's basin in the evening hours. 


The location also offers a glimpse of the Royal Gardens, the small green lung in the city center. 


Enjoy your cocktail in the cozy atmosphere that the illy café, with its unique and incomparable location, is able to guarantee.


Finally, discover the city with a mobile app. Download it to your device and enjoy the 6 proposed itineraries along with their best attractions and 'bacari'. You can also listen to an audio guide that will tell you about the highlights of the city (200 points of interest) and explore Venice with family or friends.
