Tips for tourists in Italy - safety precautions

Many of us go on vacation to Italy, having forgotten everything except the upcoming vacation, including the advice of tourists and the authorities of the destination.
Italy is actually a fairly calm and safe place to travel, but this does not mean that the country's guests will never find themselves in difficult and unpleasant situations. We picked up the top ten tips and tricks of the Italian government on how to behave better in the beautiful country of wine and sun.

Perhaps some of the points will make you laugh, some will make you shake your head and doubt their reliability, and some will think about your safety during your stay in Italy.

Volcanoes

Some of the volcanoes located in Italy are still active. The most famous of them, of course, are Etna and Vesuvius. The volcano Etna erupts more and more often, releasing pillars of ash into the sky. It will be useful if, before leaving for Italy by plane, you check to see if something "explosive" has happened there.

Good looking pickpockets

In Italy, the problem of pickpocketing, unfortunately, continues to progress more and more every year. Pickpockets are often almost dressed up and give the impression of a successful businessman. Do not, as they say, "meet a person by clothes."

Thieves on scooters and scammers on the streets

Walking along the amazing streets of the Eternal City or Naples, watch out for your belongings. You do not know when a dashing thief will appear on your scooter from behind your back, grab your handbag directly from your hands and quickly disappear from sight. Attempts to fight a thief may turn out to be unsafe: some tourists after such clashes turned to doctors with dislocated wrists and broken arms.
Sometimes Italian thieves can resort to taking "Pizza." This is a tactic in which attackers distract the victim’s attention with something interesting. It can be either a fictional campaign “buy ice cream and get a blouse”, or an advertisement for crazy discounts on local dishes, including pizza. In Naples, for example, you can meet thimbles right in the center of the city.

Alcohol abuse

The Italian authorities will certainly not be delighted if you drink pretty much and begin to behave in an inadequate manner. Carabineers all over Italy carefully monitor the order and try to remove drunken individuals from the street as soon as possible, as soon as they are noticed. Moreover, many municipalities have banned the use of alcohol in public places.

Extreme driving

Do you think that an Italian who loves a fast and even dangerous ride is nothing more than a stereotype? This is far from the case. City streets are often very narrow and winding. Scooter and motorcycle owners often drive fast and recklessly, ignoring traffic rules and road markings. That is why the number of traffic accidents in Italy is just going wild.

Strikes

Italians very often organize numerous strikes that literally stop the measured life of the city. When traveling to Italy, it’s best to search the Internet for information about upcoming demonstrations and strikes - perhaps because of them you will not be able to get or fly away from your destination.

Demonstrations

In addition to strikes, the inhabitants of Italy have another passion associated with public events - demonstrations. Despite the fact that they usually pass very, very peacefully, it is better not to tempt fate and do not get involved in them: who knows how the demonstration can end. After all, Italians are very expressive and emotional.

The sun

Although the sun and the best beaches are one of the reasons why tourists come to Italy, it also poses a huge danger. In the summer months, be in the hot Italian sun without special protective creams. Also, during the sun for tourists and local residents, the country's authorities strongly recommend that you refrain from physical exertion.

Fake Designer Stuff


An absurd copy of Gucci or Prada? Better not trust the sellers of Miu Miu handbags selling directly on the streets. Entrepreneurial Italians and expats are trying to sell fakes of famous brands almost everywhere: on the streets and even on the central beaches of resort towns. Those who wish to plunge into the atmosphere of counterfeit goods of famous brands are advised to visit the Porta Porteze Roman flea market.
