"Just bear in mind one..." Vatican City Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Krystynn

Vatican City Warnings and Dangers: 64 reviews and 58 photos


Just bear in mind one important point: Whether or not this is a religious place filled with Swiss Guards descended from 16th century mercenaries, crowds are extremely fertile territory for pickpockets anywhere. Yes, the Vatican City included.

Be careful of pickpockets and gypsy kids who most certainly will operate in a group. Do try and avoid looking like an easy target too. Even if you're lost, TRY and act like you know where you're going. Basically, look and act CONFIDENT and you won't go wrong.
