Umbrellas & bubble guns!

There are many scammers looking for tourists!

They are everywhere in Rome!

Bring your own umbrella or try it before you pay - yes they can be talked down - do not pay a lot!

A friend bought one & she was disappointed - it was broken BUT we tracked him down & he exchanged it!

The sellers are very pushy but you get that wherever you go, not just Rome!

They are persistant BUT do not give in, they eventually get the hint :)
