Pickpockets/Crime in Italy - As Bad as I Read???

Jump to last reply

Are pickpockets and thieves as prevelant as I read here and on other boards in Italy?

I am considering renting a car from VCE airport to downtown Florence as I am staying near the airport. It's over 2x the train price but I'll be very close and not worry about someone picking my bag while at a train stop on the ES*.

I've traveled in many other European countries but luckily haven't experienced any loss.

Is there a need to be observant moreso in Italy than in other countries?

I visit Europe in Sept - Oct.
