Spritz Culture 101
Spritz Culture 101: An introduction to the essential Aperitivo of the Veneto
Visiting the Veneto without trying a Spritz is like coming to Italy and skipping the food.  Discover the history behind Italy’s beloved aperitivo and its role in daily life today.  Enjoy the relaxing pace of Italy’s dolce vita, when the world seems to stop for the all-important hour of the aperitivo.  The aperitivo has a vital function in today’s hectic world- an hour or so before dinner to unwind and decompress with friends or co-workers before heading home or out for a meal. Join us as we stroll through colourful main squares of Padova, stopping at two of our favorite places for a traditional Spritz paired with local finger food.   We will explore Piazza delle Erbe, Piazza dei Signori, Piazza della Frutta and Piazza Duomo.
