After returning from our weekend break for my wifes birthday I just have to write this.
Most of the locals were not to friendly and if you was only wanting a coffee or a beer and a rest then it was worse, there was a couple of exceptions though. It was very expensive with a small coffee being anything from 2.5 euros to 4 euros and a bottle of Peroni again anything from 2.5 euros to 4 euros with a pint of lager being at least 5 euros. The fresh fish in local restuarants cheapest 20 euros and dearest 40 euros, so for a couple its very expensive, and 2 ice creams 5 euros. We normally tip but when you get poor service from miserable people we didnt tip very much at all, other nationalities and the locals got better service. We love everything Italian and will go back to Italy again, but not to Sicily. A lot of beggars will walk round you wanting food if you dont clear your plate and generally lots of beggars waiting outside the hotels, shops and restuarants with cups and praying hands and they dont always take a freindly no so you may have to get louder. Lots of dog mess on the pavements so watch the floor when you're walking about. Lots of grafitti on most of the monuments, shops etc which is a shame as it shows little respect for the capital. Traffic is ok if you're in a bus or something similar but dont rely on the zebra crossings as you begin to walk the traffic seldom stops, take you life in your hands when crossing. A fair few of the attractions were closed and or still being done up and we did go in March to be fair but there was still a lot to look at and the best was probably the Cathedral , take some good walking footwear.
La Kalsa, which is a pooper area, which my wife found very intimidating as it like a street market or a boot fair without the cars with people selling broken ornaments or a single shoe, I though boot fairs here were full of rubbish but its how they make a living and again its sad, and to see women going though rubbish bags on the side of the road is an eye opener in this day and age. I know the exchange rate is pretty much 1 - 1 but even so if your going to buy some designer 'bargains' like Armani, Prada, Boss etc think again they will be a lot lot cheaper in the UK.

Wow--we LOVED this! Segways are so much fun! And Leo and our guide, Bianca, made this an all around amazing experience! From the carefully taught lessons to the interesting tour commentary, everything was perfect. I can't say enough wonderful things about our day! My kids (ages 15 and 13) both ended the day wanting segways for Christmas! :)
