"Be very careful of Pick..." Pickpockets and Purse-Snatchers Tip by Lozza_9

Pickpockets and Purse-Snatchers, Rome: 174 reviews and 57 photos

Be very careful of Pick Pockets. Especially in Busy areas around the many fountains in Rome. The pick pockets work in teams, one takes the stolen item, then quickly hands to another person. If you see any beggers laying on the ground, do not go to see them. When you bend down, loads of childen will come and stand near you and try to empty your pockets and you will not know a thing.
