Rome Jun 06, 2012
On experience in Rome, overall I felt safe but be sure to stick to tourist marked areas, unless you have yourself a guide or prior knowledge!

Starting off with Rome Train station, if you are using the machines for tickets, be aware of pickpockets and be aware of the people who offer 'help' you may think at the time, them going through the machines and getting you where you want is great but as soon as they have finished they will expect money in return for their assitance, don't let them do it and be in charge!

Secondly, as expected the closer you are to the centre or to a major attraction, cafes/bars and restaurants are much more expensive! Finding the right balance is purely based on preference, but for me I'd much rather pay a little less a bit a little bit further out of town!

Luckily for me when I was visiting rome with friends, whom in the most part were Italian, travelling around rome was considerably easy, although there were times when it got a tad confusing! So if you are travelling alone make sure you have an exact idea of where you want to be etc etc!

I hope this was at least some help, although I am sure the points made do apply to most major cities around.
