Why is that, do you think?

Seems to me you have some sort of point you want to make but can't get it up to come out and say so directly? Instead of being coy.

No skin off my nose either way; I have no agenda here personally but I do wonder what your goal with this thread is. Are you trying to prove that some people are ignorant about different ethnicities, or something like that?

Coy doesn't bear a lot of weight in online forums so without some sort of identifier or reason I imagine this thread will die off soon.

I think some of them look like Arabs from North Africa or the Levant, but the others are not, they more like Italians

There are many tourists there, in a place where there isn't much tourists, you'll definetly stand out (if not by skin and face features it's clothes), but it shouldn't be a problem, it's natural for someone to take a quick look at people that don't resemble those that they see everyday.
