"Being careful is enough" Pickpockets Tip by florahu

Pickpockets, Florence: 43 reviews and 18 photos

Before i went there i was warned too much about the thiefs there. However, throughout the whole trip i didn't see any thief around. And the time i went there was Easter and there were a lot of tourists! But of course anyway you need to be careful enough still. I noticed that the tourists there mostly paid enough attention on their pockets, which maybe was the reason that it seems there are less thiefs now!
There are also some places with very few people. Be careful in these places as well. If a stranger suddenly begin to talk to you, just pretend not to know any Italian or English in order to get into trouble!
I feel that it is quite different between the tourists places and the poor living places. When you find yourself in a poor living places, be careful!
