"Don't be distracted!" Beggars and Cons Tip by tyerks

Beggars and Cons, Rome: 67 reviews and 34 photos

Watch out for the Gypsy kids! One of the friends we met at the hostel was walking down the street eating pizza, and a kid came up to him and kept saying "Pizza! Pizza!" He figured something fishy was going on, so he turned around and saw this other kid approaching, about to steal his wallet. Luckily, he was on guard, so he didn't get robbed, but not everyone is so lucky. If you suspect a little kid is trying to distract you, make sure you watch your back, etc... because there are usually more than one.
