Florence: Crime

City of Stone

Florence Crime

As with much of Tuscany, Florence is perhaps one of the safest tourist areas in Italy as it has a compact city centre which is well lit at night. Pickpockets are the main problem to be aware of when visiting Florence, but this is like any major European city; just ensure that you don’t put your wallet in your back pocket or leave your bag unattended etc. Cars are also vulnerable, so always lock the doors and boot and car radios are a common target, so take your radio with you if it is detachable. This is common practice.
