Everybody knows that Venice can be expensive, but seven tourists from Rome were bitterly surprised after their bill for four cafes and three liquor in an open cafeteria was € 100, according to “Reuters”.
The unfortunate scene has played out in the famous cafe Lavena on Square “San Marco”. This is the place visited every morning from the composer Richard Wagner during his stay in the city.
From the receipt that tourists are posted on the wall on Facebook, it becomes clear that what is not seen on the menu is the price paid for the music that is 6 euros per person. It equals € 42, which is half of the bill.
Owners of the cafe, opened in 1750, in which guests are served by waiters in white shirts on the background of music from a chamber orchestra, defend themselves by explaining that all prices – 6 euros for coffee, 10 euros for liquor and prices for the music are written in the menu.
“If they found the price too high, they could go somewhere else, as many people do, or drink coffee standing inside the bar, where it costs just one euro,” said manager Lavena Massimo Milanese to the newspaper Corriere della Sera.
