    Any bleeding place along the Amalfi coast, in Italy. Along with having to pay for car parking - Everywhere !!! About €4 an hour, if I remember correctly, 24 hours a day, and no cheaper periods.

    On top of that, I managed to get charged for a parking ticket that I never saw, from the car rental crowd. I reckon they ripped me off for £70, but I decided to suck it up - and make a note not to hire from them again.

    I take it you opted for ready salted crisps rather than risk the prawn cocktail ones ?

    Yes Really, we were going to have a tea and a coffee, but it was a warm day so thought an ice cream would be nice instead, a small pot of tea and a cup of coffee would have cost about £4=25, if you're ever in Folkestone on the Leas go for the "T" and coffee. :doh:
