Is it safe for 3 American teenagers to travel Italy together?

Jump to last reply

After my high school graduation this coming summer, 2 friends of mine and I are planning a 2 week trip to Italy. We would like to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, and possibly the Cinque Terre, although with our financial (and thereby time) constraint, probably not. We had our entire plan worked out - our schedule, our train passes, a chosen flight, etc.... And then the fourth member of our group dropped out for financial reasons. Now, we have the problem of one less person than our parents required us to have for permission to go on this trip. The requirement was set for safety concerns - so, now I want to know, how unsafe would we be with only 3 people? I will be the youngest - the guy and girl planning to go will both be sophomores in college by that time... I have been to Italy once, but Europe twice... My guy friend has travelled abroad many, many times, so we have some experience behind us. We would probably be staying in B&Bs and hostels with our budget. Are hostels really as safe as they advertise themselves to be?

Any advice and feedback would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you!
