"Some people will be very bold..." Beggars and Cons Tip by vuuduugrrl

Beggars and Cons, Rome: 67 reviews and 34 photos

Some people will be very bold with their attempts to pity your money out of you. Beggars are notious for keeping a mangy, starving dog with them, in hopes that the inner animal lover will shell out a couple of thousand lire to feed the poor thing. If that doesn't work, they may take their children to your table as you are dining in an outdoor restuarant. It makes it very hard to eat with a bony six year old, holding out a dirty hand over your plate. It may sound cold, but by giving them money, you aren't exactly helping them out.
