There are two types of people: those who take Aperol and those who take Campari. But what's the difference? Read to find out...

You are in the center of Milan, therefore you are near Duomo. It's five o'clock in the afternoon. You want to have a drink, maybe the same drink that Italians are used to drinking at five o'clock p.m. And you want to drink in the best place, with the best view of Milan.

Therefore, the place where you are going is the Terrazza Aperol, in the Gallery Vittorio Emanuele, in front of Duomo. Which drink do Italians take for the "aperitivo" after finishing working in busy Milan? Of course, the spritz. Spritz is a drink that comes from Venice, made with Prosecco, Aperol or Campari liquor, and sparkling water, that today has great importance above all in Milan that makes this drink one of the most iconic of what Italians usually call "Milano da bere" (Milan to drink).

There are two types of people: those who take Aperol and those who take Campari. What's the difference? Aperol is more for people who feel young because it is sweeter. Campari is more for mature people, as it's harsher. However, in the Aperol terrazza, you should feel young because the best one there is, of course, the Aperol one.

"Moebius" in Milan is more than a restaurant, more than an upscale tapas bar, more than a mixology bar & a lot more than a jazz joint... Try the ceviche!
