Safety in Rome

Jump to last reply

Couple of issues from Rome this week:

1. When alighting from a public bus, always check for scooters passing between the stopped, unloading bus and the curb. I ended up with an arrivederci Roma bruise for not checking before getting off the bus. At least it wasn't one of my children who probably would have been knocked down.

2. Roma Termini is more than just a reeking dilapidated armpit--pickpockets are active. They marked my wife and got one handbag zipper open as we rushed for the train. They know tourists with children are preoccupied with them. And thanks to Trenitalia for not announcing platforms till 15 minutes before departure creating a busy scramble. Perfect setup for the thieves. Fortunately nothing stolen.
