Florence Warnings and Dangers: 155 reviews and 84 photos

There`s a lot of fake currency in florence so alway`s check your change and make sure it`s real,and beware when drinking in bar`s and pub`s with local`s,I met a guy who went out for a drink one night and woke up with a fake fifty the next day,he reakons he got talking to a local guy and his girlfriend who seemed to be nice people,he went to buy them a drink barman take`s his money, guy stands up says i`ll get these drink`s barman swops the note`s give`s the guy back a fake fifty,probably halfs the proceeds with the guy at the end of the night,moral of the story if an italian`s nice to you he`s probably trying to beat you some how.
