    Yes first time in Rome, I over heard a woman from San Antonio Texas. She last her passport on the subway. We did not use the crowded mass transit system in Rome.

    I am not surprised by this list, however seeing London there is not be fair I think. London has more tourists than any other city on the planet, so in absolute terms they may have a lot of pick pockets but not so many in per capita terms.
