I have read that some areas around the Termini Station in Rome can be unsafe or that it is best avoided. I have taken note of the warnings regarding the prevalence of pickpockets , etc. But, I would be interested in hearing people's comments/experiences on this area. Is it safe to walk back to the hotel at night? Any streets in particular that are 'no go' areas?
I have an overnight stay in Rome before the cruise and was considering staying in one of the many hotels in this area (eg. Hotel Columbia, Via del Viminale 15) as it has received good reviews (TripAdvisor) and also due to its convenience to the Termini and proximity to historical sites.
Any comments on the above would be greatly appreciated!
