Subject: Italian hotel breakfasts
I must stay in the cheesiest hotels in Italy because, with one exception, I have found the breakfasts to be terrible. Usually a hard roll, maybe a croissant, but not a wonderful fresh one, and coffee. A cappuccino if you're lucky, but not like the ones you'll find in bars. I usually have the coffee to wake up, and then head for the nearest bar for a real cappuccino and croissant.

The one exception was in Verona, and I think the German influence was the reason for the buffet. And now that I think about it, the food wasn't that good, just more plentiful.

Got to upgrade...
