NO Picnic Area
24 April, 2007
I have found many treads about this in the forums, so I hope this help.
In Venice, and mainly in Saint Mark area, is forbidden to sit on the ground and eat sandwiches. Sometimes few kids are allowed, but when the number increases usually the rule works.
So, around lunch time, the local police is used to wet the steps in the “Piazzetta dei Leoncini”, the most comfortable place for a picnic, close to the Basilica. Cheap but effective!
