You must try Florian's pavement cafe in San Marco itself. Many famous writers used to spend their time here. You will be charged extra if the band are playing, but it is no more expensive than the other cafes which don't have the same history or service. Even so expect to pay around £4.00 for a cup of coffee
Go on, have a Cream Tea in St. Marks Square!
It's nice! Sandwiches, Scones, Cakes... and only 20 euro, but then add on another 7 for the "musica". If the band is not playing, you don't pay this extra. Don't worry to stay there a while - once you've payed you can stay as long as you like.
Favorite Dish: Cream Tea!
'Florian' Cafe in the piazza San Marco. Opened in 1720,it has been the meeting-place and rendez-vous of artists and poets, writers and politicians.
I don't remember the name of the other restaurants where I ate lunch and dinner. Food is very expensive in Venezia!
For a cold inexpensive Iced tea go to McDonalds, it was the most beautiful one, all marble. ( well, what else can you expect, it is Venezia!)
Atmosphere and a place where the brittish Charles Dickens used to visit!
Favorite Dish: Cappuccino and Tiramisu. Seafood Pizza
Okay, you will pay through the nose for coffee or dessert (or anything else) at this place, but it is a beautiful and historic café right on San Marco, and the coffee isn't bad either! Also, despite the popularity of the place, we were not rushed out, and were allowed to sit over our cappuccinos as long as we wanted.
