1- Prices for eating out: the money you can spend to eat out is about the same as in the UK or USA, and prices vary depending on the kind of restaurant you choose. You can easily spend from 5 to 8 euros for a pizza in local Italian restaurants, drinking sodas, wine or beer. If you prefer seafood, of course the price is more expensive, since fish is charged per kilo. But never mind, most of these places display their menus outside, so you can easily check the price before sitting down. And don’t forget to add the cover charge per person, which is between 1 and 2,50 euros, as in the rest of Italy.
2- Where to go: North vs. South. The whole island is very beautiful, however there are some differences between the Northener and the Southener part . You have to decide which kind of activity you want to do there. In the North the beaches tend to be small sandy coves and bays with clear blue sea. Although there are mountains all over the island, in the South they extend nearer the coast,along the east coast where you can find cliffs.
3. How long does it take to drive from North to South? It takes about 4 hours to drive from North to South, so if you have plenty of times, we suggest you to do visit the whole island, since it is a must for foreigners.
4. Do many people speak English? That’s one of the most important questions for tourists. Quite a few Italians speak a little English in local restaurants and shops if you are in an area which attracts tourists. Inland fewer people will speak English. Menus are often translated into English, even in a bad way, but at least you can understand what you are ordering.
