Wearing dark pants/light colored shirts in Italy to avoid vendors/gypsies?

Jump to last reply

We'll be staying in Naples 2 nights, Capri 3 nights, Rome 4 nights starting September 16. My wife has just returned from visiting with a cousin who has traveled a lot in Italy and in Rome and he has advised her that we should wear dark colored clothes, light colored tops, so as to fit in better as a local. I don't have a clue about that. But, he says the Italian men, for example, will wear dark pants, white shirts. And if you go wearing light colored pants you mark yourself as a tourist and get mobbed by vendors. Anyone have any opinions on this?
