Having been to Bacino Orseolo many times, I expected things to remain the same, and for the most part they did. For the most part.
Entering from Piazza San Marco, I turned left at the bookstore, and there it was - the biggest sign of commercial takeover since McDonalds.
The Hard Rock Cafe of Venice.
Granted, this is probably a lot more tasteful than what they had originally planned.
There are no Cadillac cars sticking out of the roof or anything like that.
But it just didn't sit right with me.
Anybody else here agree?
