I wish to visit Italy (June 2016) ( 4 people).
I wish to see the following :
Rome : Colosseum, Trevy Fountain, Piaza Venezia, Pantheron
Venice : Gondola Ride, St Mark square
Pisa eaning Tower
I am somehow desperate to visit Pisa if i visit Italy. I have been reading that Rome is a very un-safe place with scams by taxis and unfair business with people who are tourists in Rome which is bringing me into doubt in my mind whether i should actually visit Rome and take the risk , especially considering that my parents are senior citizens and any un-wanted incident will be creating a difficult situation for them as well as me. Ofcourse all big cities have some problems of scam with tourists but, maybe a lot has been written on Rome . Also, since I am visiting with parents and i feel Venice (although comparatively safe) is too romantic a place? I am a first time traveller and planning short trip to London, Paris, Zurich and then (Rome/Venice) if its safe...
My questions are :
1- How to travel from Rome Airport to Hotel and how to manage the travel to 3-4 spots i have mentioned in a safe way ?
2- Where to stay in Rome ?
3- How to avoid a tourist scam Italy ?
