I was excited to visit Ascoli Piceno, in Le Marche, because I wanted to eat olive ascolane at the source.

But I soon learned about this beautiful bar in the center of town, Caffè Meletti, which is known for its anisette.

Anisetta Meletti, first distilled in 1870, predates most other Italian liqueurs. It is customary to drink Meletti with three espresso beans or “mosche” (flies).
