Europe is full of wonderful views to sit back, put your feet up and enjoy. Only problem is they are surrounded by expensive Cafes which will charge you a small fortune to enjoy.
In some cases the closer you are, the more expensive the coffee will cost you.
Prime locations are sort after and European cafe’s are smart, they know what you want.

Avoid expensive views in Europe by following this one key important tip.
Travel Tip: Walk around the corner down a side street to find a market vender offering food and drink for a fraction of the price.
But you wanted the scenery, I hear you ask?
All you simply have to do is walk back with your feast and enjoy the view from a free public bench.
These outlets struggle to gather customers away from the prime spot and often charge cheaper prices than what the cafe on the main square will charge, especially when your taking your Lunch away from the shop.
