The pick-pocketers must have a pact with the guidebooks, as that’s the only rational reason that this is included. Not an attraction per se, but more of a living spectacle where tourists happily play their part of being on the receiving end of wallet snatching, various scams, and general bad deals.

Avoid the overpriced and undercooked “picture menu restaurants” along the promenade, and head to the Canaletas fountain instead; it’s said that drinking from it will guarantee your return to the city. Just watch your wallet as you bend over.
