Everyone is so helpful on here so I am hoping someone can calm my nerves.
We are traveling with our 8m old for 3 weeks across Italy. What is the best way to manage pickpocketers and theft with all the baby related gear? Did you feel safe traveling on buses with your child, or should we take private cars when we can? Will we have a huge target on our backs? I’ve heard Italians love babies, but then there are the horror stories on google telling me that gypsys use your child as a way to distract you and steal one of your resting bags.. am I overreacting? My husband and I are smart travelers, for the most part, am I being a paranoid mama?
Thank you kind Trip Advisors!
