There are too many prejudices about Rome. Rome IS A SAFE CITY! I have been traveling and walking alone in Rome for years and nothing has EVER happened to me. I felt much more in danger in cities like Paris, London or Barcelona.

Hate Rome. A girl standing next to the ticketing machine at Termini offered to help. We told her the place we wanted to go, she helped me bought a pair of random tickets, and took my change. The random tickets of course arent for the place we wanted to go, money wasted and we had to buy the correct one again.
Then, at the platform, a bunch of men forced us to give them our suitcases, they delivered them onto the train and refused to leave without getting some money from us.
We walked by a pizza restaurant near Vatican, waiters were pulling people in, as soon as we stopped and look at what's on their menu they set up the table, pour water into glass and forced us to sit down.
Tivioli fountain was under construction when we were there. All fenced off and dried up but they still want you to throw money into the construction site, really? so desperate. I know this is probably the single pool with the most income in the world, alot of spare change over the year probably funded the refurbishment of the fountain, but cant you wait til you finished upgrading it?
You will need to be a complete asshole to get by in Rome. Anyone say hi to you you better off dont react. Anyone offer to help you better think twice. Let alone stories happening at the Metro which we fortunately avoided.
What a pathetic place for holiday, really could do without the stress.

I was in Rome with my mother, aunt and sister in 2013. Only 1 day trip, and yet the criminals had aimed at us while we were at the subway platform. My aunt was really brave, she reacted and won the physical fight. The attackers were 2 female immigrants. And they spit on my aunt's face after the fight as to look superior. I hated going to Rome.

Finally the new elected politician Salvini is cleaning up the situation from criminals. Rome is the most historical city of the world, now it's time to be rise again :)

I was walking alone for two minutes at night to meet with a friend but it was only 10:30. An older man (maybe 50) came up from behind me and put me in a chokehold. I couldn't breath or speak but I loosened his grip, and yelled for help - someone saw at the end of the street, started yelling at them in Italian (probably saying what are you doing, stop) and the guy got distracted. I got out of his grip and yelled at him and said you can take all my money. He looks at me and runs way. I then ran into a cafe crying and shaking... Luckily he didn't take anything from me, but it could've been worse if he had a weapon or another man with him.. It was absolutely terrifying. ROME IS NOT SAFE AT ALL. yes, I know I was walking alone (for literally two minutes) but that is absolutely not ok. crazy world.

I was talking on the phone with my parents, two guys ran up behind me and took my phone. I chased after them and confronted them, and one of them flashed a butcher knife.

Not safe at all.

Pickpockets all over the place. Carry credit cards and skip bus rides. Lol life gypsies and Muslims

Rome is and always will be a unique city in the world, it used to be also a safe city till Muslims, immigrant Africans/Indians... and similia got here, watch out for them. Never ever get on the bus as it's full of robbers: go for the metro or even better for the taxis/uber.
