Aperitivo in Milan

An introduction to the essential
Aperitivo of the Veneto

euro 75/person

New:  small group format!  Join other foodies on this fun look at local life. Group size is from 2 to 8 people.

Available:  Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 5:30pm.

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.

  • Meet up with your local wine and food expert
  • Learn about the history and culture associated with the Spritz cocktail
  • Stroll through the most characteristic squares popular with the locals
  • Stop at two different bars to sample two different versions of the Spritz

“Wine tour from Milan”

my husband and I were in Milan for work in May. With an extra day, we wanted to return to the Amarone wine producing area which we fell in love with on a recent family vacation. Rachel at Milan Day Trips was very helpful in organizing our day and got back to us very quickly…
