I'm off to Italy from July 2 to 15 on a choir tour and while our breakfasts are included every day, we are responsible for our own meals for the rest of the trip, except in a few instances.
I'm looking for some inexpensive recommendations for lunches and dinners - and by inexpensive, I mean the cheaper the better! My colleagues and I are impoverished musicians!!
Here's where we're going:
Arrive Venice - independent lunch, dinner at La Colomba
