Amalfi, Italy, 2017
Italian beaches are different. Everywhere else you just bring your umbrella and what else and then just choose your spot in the sand. Not in Italy! Nearly all beaches are privatized here. You pay for access and rent an umbrella, sunbed and chairs. Because of this business, it looks very structured and orderly.
Funny enough, I usually would expect this from my neurotic and overly orderly fellow Germans ;-)
