Safety in Venice?

edited July 2009 in - Italy
My daughter is currently teaching in Italy but wishes to take a weekend trip into Venice alone. A close friend was just there three weeks ago and gave me reservations about it's safety for a single 20ish female. Should I be daughter isn't.

    Mommac - Venice is one of the safest cities around. 80% of the people there are tourists and there are plenty of police keeping an eye on them. I have to say, if there is one place a single girl is likely to be safe, its Venice. Ask her to book reputable accommodation, and observe the basic precautions you would in any city, and she will in all likelihood be totally fine.
