Italy Travel Warnings and Safety Precautions


Registered Member
I am planning a trip to Italy in 2018. The travel warnings really get to me. If we let terrorists dictate where and when we can travel, are we not letting them "rule" our lives? I don't know that there are many incidents in Italy but traveling abroad is a bit worrisome.

Not all the violence is being caused by terrorists but by migrants. Italy has more than they can take care of with more coming. Which its not just them, the antifascists create their fair share of it too. Don't know what to tell you other than be careful. Who knows maybe things will be better by then.

If you let fear run your life you will be miserable. Do the shootings in the US make you want to leave the country?

Italy is a beautiful country. The world is safer now than ever in history. That's a fact.

Italy is a beautiful country and you should go! Even though things like this can be scary, I'm a bit of a pessimist because I always think "Well, it's only going to get worse, so might as well go now." But it gives me a good kick in the butt to just do it. Just be aware of your surroundings and listen to your gut!

I do not plan to ever let terrorism rule my plans or my life. That being said, I also do not plan on putting myself in obvious danger. For instance, if I attend any outdoor events, I will be wearing body armor. 1512519454706.pngDon't laugh! Maybe you should consider it too!
