"yes, all the rumors you've..." Pickpockets and Purse-Snatchers Tip by miromi

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

yes, all the rumors you've heard about pickpockets are true. be especially careful on the tourist buses (like 40). they consist of dirty little girls who cause a disruption, and they go through the crowd taking what they believe is theirs. if you catch them, you'll probably get your wallet (sans money) back, which one very persistent Swedish teenage did on my bus. these girls are very international. they can scream 'i have nothing' in Italian, German, and probably English.

Address: Paris

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
