We took the night train from Vienna to Venice. We had a sleeper cabin. We locked the door and went to sleep. Sometime during the night a man with access to our room unlocked the door and grabbed my travel bag containing my passport, credit cards, etc.
The next morning the train security searched for the bag to no avail. Passengers in another cabin were also robbed. It became clear that this happens frequently and the train authority has done little to stop it. How disappointing. We filed a police report in Venice which turned out to be a good thing since the report helped us replace my passport and change our plane reservations. There is no American embassy in Venice so we had to leave a day early to fly to Rome.
They say the best revenge is living well and we still had a great time in Venice and on our unscheduled trip to Rome.
