Hope you're not flying Delta...and this is coming from a Comair employee, the Delta agents over there are absolute horrors of human beings. (AVPOH77)
. I never fly Delta, no reason to.
Darn nice airport. Nicer than JFK
. You will see lots of armed Carabinieri types walking about with dogs. Security is good there. Food is great. Shops are superb.(StearmanNut)
Thank G-d! Anything is better than JFK
! Too bad I have to fly out from there.
One thing to look out for: If you take the express train into the Termini, be very aware there many men standing about and observing you as you buy a ticket for the train. They will notice where you keep your money. These guys have cell phones and they call their women who will be waiting for you to exit the Termini. Expect to be mobbed by women carrying babies and with several children in tow. They are Gypsy pickpockets and are thick and hazardous. Anybody who touches you is a potential thief. Be sure your money and credit cards and passports are well secured. I suggest getting a neck pouch to keep all valuables under your shirt or blouse. Take this item out only in the privacy of a restroom stall. Travelers checks are smart. Keep only small money you need in a pocket or fanny pack. Fanny packs are not safe either. (StearmanNut)
Will remember that. I'm not the one carrying the money, anyway.
