i will be spending 5 days in catania at the end of may. i suppose whitmonday is a bank holiday in sicily. will may things be closed (restaurants, museums, markets)? or is there some festival going on?
i have heard about car robbers and handbag snatchers on motorbikes. i won´t drive a car, but i´m planning to bring my dslr camera with me, which i will carry around in a shoulder bag. is that asking trouble?
