The first surprise was the hot chocolate, which came in a cappuccino sized cup and was as thick and black as tar. It tasted like drinking a cup of hot Nestles Quick. The next surprise was the bill - 30 Euros for breakfast!! Whoops.
After that shock, we decided to keep on a reasonable budget for the rest of the day, and walked over to the gardens. They were nothing like we expected (very few flowers) but the greenery was pretty and the view was amazing (again).
I decided to use the opportunity to play with my camera, and tried to get some shots that said "Italy" to me. I took over 300 shots - some of which are unquestionably junk - but got a few good ones. I haven't had a chance to go through them all, and these are SOOC, but here are a few.
