U.S. Embassy Security Warning for Rome and Milan (November 18)

Jump to last reply

I just received this alert from the U.S. State Department by way of the U.S. Embassy in Rome .This is making me extremely nervous about my trip to Europe in a few days. I just wanted to share:

UNITED STATES EMBASSY ROME, ITALY
Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Potential for Terrorist Attacks
November 18, 2015

U.S. Embassy Rome informs U.S. citizens that the following locations have been identified as potential targets in Rome and Milan for terrorist attacks:

· St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (Rome)

· the Duomo and La Scala in Milan

· General venues such as churches, synagogues, restaurants, theatres, and hotels in both cities are possible targets as well.

Terrorist groups may possibly utilize similar methods used in the recent Paris attacks. The Italian authorities are aware of these threats. U.S. citizens are advised to remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings. We encourage U.S. citizens to monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities.
