While you are traveling in Italy or anywhere else, it pays to be aware of your surroundings. If something appears to be too good to be true, it probably is. If you are tired and weary of sightseeing or being out and about, stop somewhere for a beverage and rest. Whatever you want to see or do, has been in Italy for hundreds or thousands of years. You are not going to miss it if you stop and recharge your batteries. If someone is standing too close to you, step away. Don't allow yourself to be crowded! Enjoy Italy and the experience the joys of being there.
