"pickpockets!" Pickpockets Tip by meaganelizabeth

Pickpockets, Florence: 43 reviews and 18 photos

by meaganelizabeth

When you are near the train station, or near santa Maria Novella- Be Careful! Watch for little girls, they grab anything and pass it along. As soon as you grab one the other gets away with your belongings. You watch them get arrested one day, and back the next. Also be careful of ATMs. A friend tried to take out money, he never recieved it, but it was taken out. We still dont really know what happened.

Address: Florence

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
