You Can Actually Visit The Village of Prosecco In Italy and Drink All The Prosecco
Lying 249 metres above sea level, Prosecco - upgraded to a suburb now - is a quaint settlement of red-tiled farmhouses, backyard vineyards and restaurants with glorious sweeping sea views.
It's surely a bucket list destination for prosecco obsessives (we all know one), and the great thing is it's so easy to visit!
Prosecco is just a short hour and half drive from Venice or a two hour train. Arriving, you'll find well-priced hotels, a quaint church at the centre of the village and - you guessed it - prosecco on every corner.
However, while the wine was first created in the village in the 16th century, let it be known that the drink's finest forms are found in the vineyards of Veneto in the Prosecco region - a rather misleading 30 miles north of Venice.

The easiest way to visit the Prosecco region is by train from Venice.
Hop on a train at Venice airport (Venezia Mestre) or Venice Island (Venezia Santa Lucia) and head for Conegliano station which should take you around an hour.
Luckily, travel to Italy is no longer out the question. From 4th July, Italy is exempt from the FCO advice against all non-essential international travel following the pandemic, which means you can book your Prosecco-fuelled trip now.
British Airways offers flights to Venice for £70 this month, and just £45 in August if you don't mind holding off, while Trainline is offering rail tickets from Venice to Trieste for £7.49 and to Conegliano for as little as £4.89.
We're thinking, why not enjoy a few days in the village before spending a week exploring the Prosecco region in the north, touring vineyards and sipping on the sweet stuff
Happy travelling (and drinking!)
