The 15 most expensive cities for a glass of Prosecco

New research has revealed the worst places to travel to if you’re a fan of Italian sparkling wine.

The data ranks the worst-offending cities when it comes to pricing Prosecco.

A new study has collated the average price of a glass of Prosecco in some of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

The research — carried out by cruise agent Bolsover Cruise Club — ranked 30 of the world’s most prestigious cities according to the price of Prosecco by the glass in bars and restaurants.

There’s no denying the British public’s love affair with Prosecco.

Brits consumed around one third of the world’s Prosecco in the past year, and while London is typically one of the most expensive cities to buy a round of drinks, it actually ranks as one of the cheapest places for Italian fizz

But surprisingly in Italy, it’s a different story.

Venice is the undisputed home of Prosecco, so it’s no wonder that the city ranks in the top three affordable drinking destinations at a rate of £5.33 per glass.

Fizz drinkers in Milan, on the other hand, are paying a staggering £14, nearly three times the cost of the Venetian bill.

Meanwhile, if you are thinking of travelling to Australia, be warned – the two biggest cities down under, Sydney and Melbourne, both come in pricier than London for refreshments.
