When it came to stealing belongings, Barcelona’s busy pedestrianised street, Las Ramblas, grabbed first place.
Over 3,270 evaluations mentioned pickpockets on the iconic street, which is at the top of many travellers’ lists.
Las Ramblas is packed all year, although it is busiest during the summer months.
The boulevard, which goes down to the port, is frequently crowded with street performers, artists, and living monuments.
According to The Express, the area around Paris’s renowned Eiffel Tower was the world’s second-worst pickpocketing hotspot.
It’s predictable that thieves target visitors at one of the city’s biggest attractions, which is typically highly busy.
Pickpockets may target distracted tourists at the famed monument, so tourists should have their wits about them.
The Trevi Fountain in Italy came in third place and is one of the country’s most renowned tourist attractions.
Opportunistic pickpockets may also target train stations, airports, and other public transportation hubs.
Paris featured the greatest pickpocketing hotspots of any European city, including Sacre Coeur, the Louvre, and Notre Dame.
The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was also featured, while the Colosseum in Rome was another favourite target for thieves.
If a visitor is a victim of pickpocketing, they should notify the local police or their lodging provider for help.
They can also discover if their belongings are protected by travel or house insurance and file a claim.
