As in any big city, be aware of yourself and your belongings. Think and act smart. Even if you have no idea where you are, don't look like you're lost in the street, stop to consult a shopkeeper for directions or look at your map in an area away from bustling crowds. Pickpockets and panhandlers (gypsies) work the streets of Milan, so be smart with your wallet, passport, and posessions.

Milan is just like any big city, you need to watch your stuff. There are a lot of pickpockets. Watch what areas you walk in at night, avoid being around the train stations (Centrale and one side of Garibaldi) For the most part I felt very safe in Milan, just be aware of who is around you. The Metro, trams and buses are very popular with pickpockts anytime of day. The red and green lines which seem to be a bit worse than the yellow.

If you look like a tourist (maps, cameras, etc) you will be approached by groups of child beggars with newspapers. The idea is that they will overwhelm you and pick your pockets. Be aggressive and forceably push them away.

Milan is a very big city so you should be aware of any danger that you normally face in a such city like beggers and pickpockers. Specially on the metro and the tram. crowded areas like c.so galleria v Emanuele and nearby the station..also be aware in some parts and nearby the Parco Sempione (Milan's drug-park)

Milan is a big city. You have always to pay attention to your belongings especially when on the underground and I wouldn't walk alone in parks at night.
But a part from this the city is quite safe during the day, everywhere and during the night in the center.

Pay attention to your wallet when you're in a crowded place such as the center town, the underground, on the bus...
Warning: don't travel to Milan on August! It's terribly hot and about 80/90% of the population is somewhere else for vacation. (it's even a little bit more dangerous in the night time)

There really ARE pickpockets here...and you don't have to be a tourist to be a target. My friend's roommate, who happens to be italian, was robbed while in a crowded streetcar. She was suspicious, but in the end, when she got off the tram, it was too late: her wallet, cell phone and important documents were gone from her backpack.
the moral of the story is this: you don't have to be a tourist to get robbed...so in any case, hold on to your purses and bags in crowded places!

There are pick pockets all around, so keep hold of your purses and luggage.
