Having read all the advice on being careful when traveling in Italy and avoiding pickpockets, etc. getting a money belt and other precautions what do we really need to have with us? Once we are in Rome, Florence or Venice and if we wanted to be out and about seeing the sights do we need to have our passports with us or can we just leave them in the hotel?
Would it be enough to leave everything behind in the hotel wallets, purses, multiple credit cards, drivers license etc and just have one credit card and some cash or do we need anything else?
To make purchases, do you need anything more than a credit card or cash?
Or to put it another way, what do we need to have with us ?
Thanks again for all your helpful advice and suggestions.
