CoachingWinsChampionships Posted July 7, 2006 Share Posted July 7, 2006 in venice, i did all the san marco square and the the bridge and then just roamed around. We went up the high tower in the square which was very nice with an amzing view. Also we went out to the island of Burano ( about a half hour ferry ride) where there was better and cheaper food. But most of my time was also spent just roaming around. It seemed like a better plan (and a cheaper one) than taking a gondola ride. I'll tell you what pissed me off more than the damn pigeons though: we sat down at the cafe in San Marco square for a few drinks. The four of us each order drinks--2 beers, a sprite and an iced tea. They bring them out and we take a look at the receipt. . . they charged 40 euros(about $50) for those four drinks.:doh: It was so ridiculous it was almost funny. At first we thought it was a mistake, but then we learned it wasn't and got really furious. The same conversation was going on at each table in the square there and the whole place was full of waiters trying to defend themselves. God I hate snobby European waiters!
