Treviso Tourist Traps

  • by inge-w Written Feb 22, 2012

    A lot of shops open in the afternoon, but in Italy, the afternoon starts at 15:30.
    As the museums and everything else of interest is also closed, there is absolutely nothing to do but walk aroudn until 15:30. Which is fine if it is a nice day, but it is not when it is cold and rainy.
