Venice Spritz Time

Spritz is the classic Venetian aperitif, a mix of white wine and - typically Aperol and seltzer or sparkling mineral water. This sunset-colored cocktail is one of the most famous in Venice. Its origin is unknown, but it seems that they dated back to when Venice was under the Austrian Empire: as the Austrians' were used to drinking beer with a lower alcoholic degree, to dilute the Venetian wines they used to put seltzer or sparkling water in their glasses; the origin, therefore, came from the German verb spritzen which means "to spray," that is the gesture to dilute wine with sparkling water.

Spritz is the Venetian most iconic cocktail and meeting friends for a spritz is one of the most famous Venetian habits. It is the perfect break between work and dinner to catch up without having to commit to a full evening together. Enjoy this unusual Venetian habit in a "bacaro," the so-called Venetian pub. Ask for a Spritz with Aperol (the sweetest), Spritz with Select (bitter), with Campari (even more bitter), or with Cynar (strong taste that only the older generation of Venetians could tolerate).

This tour is self-guided and will include one (1) Spritz, two (2) Cicchetti (small appetizer).

It is important to note that the tour will take place also with rain; however, in the event of exceptional high tide or bad weather, it might be, and you will receive a full refund. You must be at least 18 years of age to partake in the tour.
