Would you use the Metro in Milan to transfer from Cordona station to Milan Central or take a cab? We are convcerned about pickpockets
Don't know why not. Not any different than any other big city metro system. We were there in June and got along fine. But we don't have any problems anywhere else either. Use the normal precautions.
We used the metro in Milan with no problem. But, as Frank mentioned, we used the normal precautions, such as wear a money belt, keep an eye on each other's back, etc.
