litre , and 75ml - the smaller ones are usually sold in packs of 6 or in a separate fridge if you want singles. You can get Coke all over Venice....

There are also 1,5 liter and 0,5 liter bottles, and 0,5 and 0,33 liter cans. The selection can often vary according to the single store and any special sales of the week.

Also beware that when purchased at cafés or restaurants, (coca) colas and other soft drinks generally cost as much as if not more than similar quantities of other liquids such as wine and beer.

Also beware that while the predominate cola is coke, pepsi is present, and most places don't necessarily distinguish between one brand and the other as is the habit in some other countries, sometimes serving them interchangeably.

Man, this thread isn't nearly as interesting as I thought it was going to be.

Friend of yours Zeke? I believe this question hits a new low for a new TA member's first question. "Yeah...I'm going to Venice! I wonder what size plastic bottles of Coke Lite comes in! Jeez....

Researchers found that people who drank diet soda the most frequently--at least two diet sodas a day--had waist circumference increases that were 500 percent greater than people who didn't drink any diet soda.


Note to the OP: have a Spritz instead.

Is Coke Light the same thing as Diet Coke?

In Europe, Diet Coke is called Coke Light. It tastes the same.

I think only on mainland Europe as in Ireland and the UK it's diet coke (and coke zero - but I never figured out what that one was and how it was different to diet coke?)

I agree with MonteCD - when in Venice, have a Spritz instead!

We did notice that you can get caffeine-free full-fat coke which I have never seen in the UK.

Prices seemed cheaper too which surprised me for something obviously imported.
