You see I am someone who suffers from severely from being anxious and even slightly paranoid, which is not healthy for me when it comes to traveling. If I go on this trip I have to take four planes, two there and two back and each time we have to stop off in London which I'm also not sure about. I'm nervous about three things; taking a plane, being in London, and being in Italy. I know my fears have some value to them given how crappy this year has been, but my family wants me to go. I'd really like some advice from users on here. It would be even better if you lived in Italy and or London or have visited there, but any advice or opinions. I need to give my mom an answer by tomorrow night
Sorry if this is out of nowhere. I've tried talking to my family but my mom doesn't really get it or care and my sister is to busy to care. I honestly feel a bit alienated but that's an entirely different story. Please, I need help.

I'd say just take the trip and enjoy your time with your family... unless you have something more important to do than enjoying your precious time with your family. Even IF something went wrong, at least you're taking it together with your loved ones. Just stay alert to the pickpockets when you visit rome (or other crowded places), and get ready to wet your feet when venice is in high water period.

I'm sorry to hear your family's not more supportive or understanding of your anxiety. I don't know what answer you've given by now, but I hope that even if you do go, that you'll have at least someone to talk to if it gets overwhelming.
on general political criminality, In Italy riots never escalates out a general melee between police and riotes fought with clubs and handles, but an American should be careful, because rioters are generally from the extreme left.
on the common criminality, remember that in Italy, and generally in Europe, the safety layout is reversed re. United States: the Inner cities are the most safe zones, and on top of it are where the cultural heritage is concentrated. Florence, Venice and Rome are a case of this; is in the periphery where dangerous people lives and commit crimes.
on pickpocketing, a tip: if you're pickpocketed or snatched, YELL "Al Ladro !" ("Thief !") Italians have a really dim view of thieves, and very often will start an impromptu posse.
more important, keep always in mind that Italians tend to forgot the rules of the road, and often don't care about street signalling and checking speed; and abuse happily of honking: so be very careful in crossing roads.
last thing: never ever argument with Italians. "agree to disagree" is alien to our culture, and debating often is hour-long and heated. Especially, avoid debating politics and sports, arguments which Italian can easily discuss for hours.
Best regards from Italy,

I don't know if I'm late but, as Piergiorgio said, go ahead and don't worry: Italy's a great place to visit, especially if you go south
I know there's a lot of shameful advertise, such as "don't go to Naples because it's all like Gomorrah", but I live exactly there and I can tell you it's not scary at all. As for the terrorists' attacks they always threathen Rome but fortunately they didn't succeed.
If I can suggest a good period to visit, come in summer!
Venice and Florence are among the most safe cities in Italy, so don't worry!I'm looking for some advice from people on whether or not it's safe to travel to Venice and Florence in Italy.
But for Venice be careful about the period you choose to visit it: I'd reccomend summer, because in winter there are massive floods into the city and it's difficult to visit. You know, it's built on water and water levels can get over your knees in winter ><
For the pickpocketers: they look for crowds, people with maps, shorts and expensive cameras. Just don't look like a "tourist" and be careful about the bags... otherwise, as Piergiorgio said, "AL LADRO!" is a good way to catch attention!

Relax yourself, take in the scenery and don't worry about "what-ifs".

And enjoy the people and the food! Italians (especially in the south) are louder by nature when they speak. It's their passionate culture. Enjoy it! Most will be friendly.
