The electrical current in Italy is AC - the cycle is 50Hz 220 V. A tourist carrying electrical appliances to Italy should have a transformer, either obtained before leaving your country or bought at an electrical appliance shop in Italy. Plugs have round prongs, not flat, therefore an European Plug Adapter (round pin) is needed.
The international dialing code for Italy is 39, the area code for Rome is 06.
Public telephones are available throughout Italy. Either local or international calls require the use of a phone card which may be purchased at any newsstand, tobacco shop or "bar".
