After my International Marketing class ended at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, one of our USAC advisors took us to one of the oldest cafés in Italy: Caffé Al Bicerin. Our advisor told us that the building the café is now in is an original structure built by the Romans in the 1st century!! Woah. The café would later be founded in 1763 and all of the interiors are still in their original form. The café is small but it is still gorgeous and a popular spot for locals till this day. We got the chance to drink ‘Bicerin’ which is what the café became famous for serving. Bicerin consists of coffee, chocolate, milk and it is delicious! Bicerin is also a small glass without handles which the drink is served in- hence how it got the name. This is just another reason why I love USAC, they take you to all of these little places throughout the city where you probably wouldn’t have thought to go to on your own!
P.S. They are taking us to the Italian Riveria this weekend! I can hardly wait!
Ciao for now 🙂
