Italy Travel Tips - Avoiding Pickpockets

I came across this fantastic on-line article today about how to avoid a pickpocket in Italy. It is written by an expat who has lived in Italy for many years and in many parts of Italy. She is well-traveled and savvy, not to mention a good writer. This piece is detailed and very important to read if you plan on traveling to Italy (or anywhere for that matter!) It is my opinion that there is actually less crime in the European cities then there is in the U.S., however when we are in Europe, we are obviously tourists and therefore a target. I have been with people who have been robbed and have known others. It always happens quickly and usually expertly. So, be aware, vigilant and prepared, so that you can keep your vacation happy and incident-free. Please read:
