Despite really liking Pisa yesterday and parking what we thought was a ‘safe’ area in a road named Via Vittorio Venetto, just outside the city walls in a very open parking space alongside the pavement with other motorhomes and cars, we discovered late last night that we had in fact been broken into.
What the thieves took was a rucksack containing a large padlock for our bikes and some tools for the bikes and also my bag that I use for cycling containing a spare innertube, puncture repair kit, bike lights and bike computer!
When we returned back to the camper after visiting Pisa we had a warning light on the dashboard saying attempted break in so we checked all the doors and found no sign of a break in. It was only last night as we were getting ready for bed that we noticed the rucksack and bags had gone!
We are assuming that they managed to open one of the back doors slightly and reach in and pull the bags out. We feel fortunate that only minor items have been taken (we have checked for anything else missing) and if you are planning to visit Pisa, please be aware that no matter where you park, your valuables are not safe. Please be careful everyone.
