Grancaffè Quadri

Top choice cafe in San Marco

Powdered wigs seem appropriate inside this baroque bar-cafe that's been serving happy hours since 1638. During Carnevale, costumed Quadri revellers party like it’s 1699 – despite prices shooting up to €15 for a spritz. Grab a seat on the piazza to watch the best show in town: the basilica's golden mosaics ablaze in the sunset .
