Drink coffee and pay for the music
Caffe Lavena has been a favorite meeting place for tourists in Venice since 1750. Situated in St Marks Square - Piazza San Marco - near the clock tower, this boutique coffee shop has attracted musicians like Wagner and writers like Honore de Balzac. Mortal tourists can also share the glory of the past by sipping coffee in this illustrious cafe.
But those on a budget better watch out. Drinking coffee while standing up at the bar is just Euro 1 but if you sit down and order coffee you are charged Euro 6 for an Espresso - with a surcharge of another Euro 6 per person for the orchestra! Being serenaded in Venice comes for a price!
