  Bar Scene
by painterdave

You have seen those Italian movies where the old men of the village come daily to the piazza and sit around playing cards and making comments about the women who walk by. Sadly, I have to tell you that this is Hollywood. I have seen a few villages where this scene happens, but only a few. Due Carrare is no exception.
However there is one bar frequented by mostly older men over 60, one bar that is frequented by persons in their 30's and one bar that has a hoard of 20 somethings. I don't have to tell you which one has more polizia visits on weekends over the noise level.
Shown here is the bar for over 60......
There is no card playing that I have ever seen, no cat calling to the women, and no sleeping drunks. There is a slot machine where a lot of coins never return.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
