Gangs of pickpockets, both girls and boys, harass tourists on the Rome underground by stealing wallets and purses not kept securely enough. They distracted us with a breast-feeding baby and then pounced as we entered the packed train. My friend had his wallet taken and we saw many similarly fated tourists going into the Police Station where we reported it. They used physical means to restrain me but succeeded only in bruising my arm.
The underground is not very extensive in Rome, consisting of lines A & B, but it is the most convenient mode of transport especially for the Vatican and St. Peter's and the Colosseum.
