Italy Things to Do: 1,470 reviews and 2,257 photos
Search as I may, I've yet to see pictures of some of the more common things you are likely to see in Italy, especially the beggars and hawkers. In major tourist destinations they almost appear on every block. The transient nature of their life dictates that you may even see the same people in different locations and, especially the hawkers, with their wares on public transport seeking the best site.
I find their situation sad and admit I would like to do something to help (as we did twice) but I would have loved to have a discussion with some of them to find out exactly where they live and how it is that some of them have lasted so long, as with this lady.
I admired their mental fortitude in having to turn up every day with their hands out, it's not a life I personally would aspire to.
Directions: On every block
