Crime/Safety in Rome & Florence?

Jump to last reply

I was wondering if anyone could provide some information on crime/safety in Rome and Florence. My fiance and I will be in both cities for four days for the first time in late October before moving on to spend 5 days in Tuscany. I've read a couple things on the board that seem to allude to or mention pickpocketing/tourist scams, but haven't come across anything specific or concrete.

For what it's worth, we'll be on one train (Rome to Florence) during our trip, but probably won't take the metro or any other public transportation during our time in Italy (we're big walkers and will cab it if we need to, and we'll have a car in Tuscany). We went to Paris last summer and didn't experience any issues or really even encounter any of the scam artists I'd read about, so I'm hoping that Italy is more of the same. :)

Also, I'm recently engaged and my engagement ring is admittedly rather large (sorry, I really hate the way that sounds, but I feel like it's somewhat relevant to the question I'm about to ask). I've traveled safely in many major US cities (San Francisco, New York, DC, etc.) while wearing my engagement ring, but I'm wondering if it's safe to wear it during our Italy trip as well?

Thank you in advance for any insights or tips you can provide!
