Safety in Italy

Jump to last reply

When reading on another website, a person who had visited Italy (Rome) several times, found that there were many changes, now, and not for the better! They mentioned that "loads of migrants were aggressively asking for money" and that it made them feel unsafe! They went to Florence, and then on to Verona where they left 2 days early because of this problem. They also experienced lots of pick-pockets while standing in the cues to museums and monuments. There was mention about the migrants being from the Balkans!

I've known that this was a problem back about 16 years ago, when Fodor"s had some messages on this topic. My husband and I really didn't have this experience as these travelers had, just recently! So, I'm wondering if others who have recently visited Italy have found this to be a real problem and do not feel safe?
