Tuscany Scorpions & Centipedes?

Jump to last reply

In trying to locate a villa in the countryside outside Pienza I found a post from a from a former guest at one of the Villas stating at night they had scorpions & centipedes. The owner of the villa advised these insects were expected in the country and they wouldn't hurt you if you stay on the ground floor you wouldn't have the problem the upper floors have. Yes, we have the same insects here in OK in the country; but, I live in town and if I were step on one at night they wouldn't have to hurt me I would probably hurt myself and an ambulance wld have to be called. In a movie I saw about Italy the scorpions were much bigger than what we have here.

Has this been a problem for anyone.
