beware of Rome Fiumcino airport train station Sep 15, 2009
Okay so everyone is aware of the cliched pickpockets in Rome. I made sure to be careful of my stuff and pickpockets when I landed at the Roma Fiumcino airport outside of Rome. There was a connecting train to Rome city center that leaves from inside the airport. I bought my train ticket at the ticket booth hurriedly, as the train was about to depart within that minute. Sitting down on the train, after catching my breath relieved that i made it onto the train in time, I counted the change i received from the train ticket attendant. to my surprise, i was short-changed about 30 Euros! Since it was my first time handling Euro currency, was not expecting this sort of daylight robbery. I suspect this was common practice for the delinquent train attendant there, i recalled a similar earlier incident when the guy in front of me at the ticket line notified the attendant that he bought several tickets and was short-changed by one ticket! Tourists, beware of being short-changed in Rome!
