On my last visit in Milano Italy, i went to the Duomo. It was the first day of my trip, and definitely the worst. On the second I stepped out the subway, "Tourist hunting gangs" jumps from all over, trying to force me to buy fabric bracelets, picture me with my own camera, let me hold a peagun and dozens of other things. It was very much disturbing, and i felt like i'm going to be robbed any minute. I believe most of them were immigrants since between themselves they spoke other languages.
The days after I continued to north Italy, to the Dolomities and the Trentino/Alto Adige regions. And it's like a whole different place, totally different people, and a feeling of true authentic Italian culture.
My next destination is the Spain/France. I land in Barcelona, and will spend a day or two there. And then continue to the Pyrenees.
And my questions are:
- What are the places/regions to avoid of visiting inside Barcelona and around the Pyrenees?
- I never used a travelers safety wallet belts and stuff like that, are those any good? Can you please recommend on any precautions I should take?
