Location: Piazza del Duomo, Milano.
Espresso price at Autogrill: 0.85 Euros.
Espresso price at Caffe Duomo: 3.50 Euros.
Woah! I know Autogrill is basically like going to a servo, but the coffee is still damn fine. Caffe Duomo is only 100 metres down the street, with a slightly nicer view of the Duomo Cathedral. Plus, you can sit outside. But does that really justify the 411% price increase?
Yes, actually. It does. The cathedral is the third-largest in the world, has 135 spires and boasts the world's tallest (not the largest nor the widest, but the TALLEST) stained glass window.
