Any scams to watch out for in Rome & Florence?

Jump to last reply

This forum was so helpful when I went to Paris: we were approached at the Eiffel tower by you girl holding out printed paper for us to "read" to her...We said No, No and walked away..Also near our hotel a young man called to us "did we drop a ring" ? and holding out a gold band. these two incidents were just as described on Fodors...
Now , my brother and wife are going to Rome and Florence...They are both experienced travelers but only in the US..His wife is a primary school teacher, so could be a "mark" for anything related to children...My brother a camera expert but i don't think he would fall for the old "let me take a picture of you with your camera'" and then run off...
Any info appreciated.
