Mobile phones
Thanks to the ongoing regulatory efforts at the EU-level, mobile phone roaming rates are capped across all EU member states including Italy, which means that you can expect to pay only €0.24 per minute for outgoing calls, €0.07 per minute for incoming calls and €0.08 per SMS sent. 
Depending on your phone usage, it’s well worth considering buying a local SIM card that you simply use in your own phone. A prepaid account starts from around €20. To purchase one you need to show your ID card or passport.
