Avoid the small river (le Drac) at high tides the water rises rapidly when it is released from the dam. The usual water safety precautions apply.

Be alert at all times and be aware of your surroundings. Take the usual safety precautions so you do not become a targets for pickpockets. Take extra care on public transport as there are pickpockets on trains and trams though the city and surrounding areas.

Don’t put your wallet or mobile phone in your back pocket. Put any valuables items in a dark colour shopping bag when going out to avoid attention.

When withdrawing cash from ATM try to go inside the bank. Beware of withdrawing cash from cash points on pedestrian walkways. Try to withdraw small sums and don’t flash your cash around even in the bank.
