1British family was charged €526 for lunch in Venice

After a British family was charged €526 for lunch in Venice (Venezia), an Italian Travel expert tells you how not to get ripped off in the Bel Paese!

Stand up

Whether you’re in the most touristy bar in Rome or a tiny cafe in a Calabrian village, standard practice is to charge more for customers who sit down than those who stand up. Some places waive this; most don’t.

By law, all bars have to state their different prices for table service. Sometimes, it’s absolutely worth sitting down. That’s fine, but just inform yourselves first.
