Stafford - Ripped Off Around the World - Wed, August 21st 2013 by AM640 published on 2013/08/21 18:14:38 +0000 We all know that just about the whole city of Venice in the summertime is a tourist trap. Yet, a group of tourists from Rome are steamed after getting a $130 bill for four coffees laced with liqueurs at an outdoor cafe. Caffe Lavena, located in the city's historic St. Mark's Square opposite the façade of St Mark’s Basilica, is a popular hang out where visitors can relax, have a drink and take in the sights. What the Roman tourists - who posted their receipt on Facebook - apparently did not notice when looking at the menu was the "music surcharge" of about $8 per person. Have you encountered a similar "scam" while traveling around the globe?
