    • VENETO
      • Historic Cafes of Venice – ". . . Being a coffee-lover, people-watcher and a sucker for history and elegance, I’d advise you to make it a point to visit one of the famous historic cafes, whose tables spill out onto the piazza.  Here, waiters dressed smartly in black pants, bowties and white dinner jackets will deliver what is sure to be the most expensive drink you’ve ever had.  But in return, you’ll be rewarded with time to linger, a priceless view and from April through October, musical accompaniment. A fair trade, indeed. On second thought  - why not visit them all?" – Robin Locker Lacey – Source: my mélange – "Savor. Italy. France."
      • Venice's Historic Cafes – "When it comes to historical Italian coffee, you can not help but talk of Venice. It is in this lagoon city that the tradition of coffee was born, that due to its position and its trade relations with the Arab world, which then spread to the rest of Italy." – "" – Source: Found in the Travel Ideas section of ITALIA – "the official website for tourism in Italy, sponsored by the Italian Government." – In English, French, German, Italian, Spanish
